about

Surrounded by deep green lawns, Rajghat is a simple black granite platform marking the site where, on January 31, 1948, Mahatma Gandhi's last rites were performed. ‘Hey Ram’, his last words, are engraved on the black memorial stone. At the centre of the square stone, an eternal flame burns to symbolize eternity of the great leader. To mark Gandhi's birthday (Oct. 2) and death anniversary (Jan. 30), prayer ceremonies are held.

 

Around 10,000 visitors visit this memorial everyday. The area has a beautiful park adorned with trees planted by visiting dignitaries and heads of state. People of every class visit the memorial to pay their homage to 'Bapu' (father), the man who played a very important role in making India an independent country.

 

A prayer service is organized on every Friday, the day he was assassinated, at 5.30 pm in the evening. Political leaders and citizens pay homage here every year on his birthday (October 2) and death anniversary (January 30). As a sign of respect, visitors are required to take off their shoes before approaching the memorial.
