Raj Ghat

Raj Ghat is an elegy dedicated to the Mahatama Gandhi, the Father of Nation. It is a remarkable monument that reminds the visitors of one of the greatest freedom fighters. This simple black marble platform symbolizes the spot where Mahatama Gandhi was cremated on 31st January 1948.


An incessant flame burns near the platform situated on the banks of river Yamuna in Delhi. A stone footpath enveloped by lawns takes you to the enclosure that treasures the memorial. Raj Ghat also houses the memorials of other important leaders such Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastri.


Located nearby are the two museums, in tribute of Gandhiji. The monument also bears the epigraph 'He Ram' or 'O Ram' (also translated to 'O God'), the last words uttered by Gandhi. As a mark of respect, visitors are expected to remove footwear before reaching the memorial. Every Friday, a memorial ceremony is held. Prayer sessions are conducted at the Raj Ghat on important days of Gandhi's like his birth and death anniversaries. An eternal burning flame is kept in a glass case in honour of Gandhiji.
