Rajghat marks the very spot where the' Father of the Nation' Mahatma Gandhi was cremated following his assassination in 1948. The memorial is represented by a simple square platform with a black memorial stone with "Hey Ram" inscribed on it, as they were the last words uttered by Gandhi before he collapsed.
The Raj Ghat memorial is situated on the banks of River Yamuna and is a focal point for any foreign dignitary who travels to Delhi, India. It is also open for ordinary people as well as foreign tourists. You can also participate in the prayer process that is held on all weekdays except on Fridays. Tourists in Raj Ghat can assimilate a bit of the Gandhi philosophy through pictures, sculptures and photos. Visit the nearby Gandhi Memorial Museum and see a short film on his life to gain a deeper insight into the life of this great humanitarian.
The serene atmosphere of Raj Ghat is surrounded by a wooded area and beautifully pruned shrubs. As you amble through the ornate stone pathways, you are sure to feel his magnetic aura. Tour Raj Ghat with us to pay homage to a great statesman of his times.
