Raj Ghat

Delhi Tourism - Thursday, October 01, 2009 12:54:47 PM

Raj GhatFour kilometers away from the famous Janpath is the memorial stone of Gandhiji. It is Rajghat, adjacent to Feroz Shah and Delhi Gate on the Ring Road. It is the last resting place of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the nation.

Rajghat is near to the banks of Yamuna River where Ghandhiji was cremated on 31st January 1948 after his assassination on January 30, 1948.

On the simple square platform made of black stone “Hey Ram” is inscribed. “Hey Ram” was the last words uttered by Mahatma Gandhi. An eternal flame also keeps burning at the platform in a copper urn.

Rajghat is one of the most green and peaceful places in Delhi. There is a little park inside that is well-looked. Entrance to Rajghat is free, but taking off shoes are compulsory near the shrine of Mahatma Gandhi. Visitors can keep their shoes on the guarded shelves at the entrance and can pay a visit inside Rajghat.

Every Friday commemorating ceremony is held at Rajghat. Foreign delegates of Government of India comes here to pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi by offering flowers at the shrine.
