Owner description: The focus of this open-air memorial to Mahatma Gandhi is a black marble platform marking the place where the peace leader was cremated after his assassination in 1948. It's a peaceful, beautiful site; memorial ceremonies are held on Fridays.

it was not crowded, beautifully kept up, and clean. a very special place that you should not miss. Only some of Gandhi's ashes are here and some went into the Ganges River.

Located not far from the centre of Delhi, Raj Ghat is in my view a “must do” place to visit. It’s obviously different to the various archaeological sites around Delhi, but in terms of the historical significance of the place, it says much about what modern India is today, and its recent roots.

It’s peaceful (even if surrounded by thousands of school kids!). Worth spending an hour or so just to wander around.

nice relaxing way to spend, pay your homage to father of the nation and visit museum and other near by attaraction like Kisan ghat, shanti van. and do get some time to visit museum on the main road, good parking and if you have good time Red fort and chandini chowk are also walking distance from here

Worth a visit for anyone who knows who Gandhi was. There are no surprises since tombs are not the place for surprises. Silence, flames and flowers is what you can see here. A one time visit is worth but if you do not know who Gandhi was then do not go here there is nothing up here.

We had been there yesterday and very much enjoyed the visit. Start from Raj Ghat (Gandhi), then to Veer Bhumi (Rajeev), Shakthi Sthal (Indira) and finally to Shanthi Van (Nehru). What we enjoyed was the landscape, perfectly kept lawns with serene a lake inside. There were a group of ducks/swans inside the lake. We could also spot parrots in the gardens. Roses in the Shanthi Van is so beautidful, full bloomed and harbinger the spring!

Raj Ghat is not clean at all though, with so many plastic bags and chips covers all around, so bad of the administers, really! Other places are good. My 11 mo daughter thoroughly enjoyed the trip!
