About Raj Ghat and associated memorials

Located on the banks of Yamuna River, Raj Ghat is a spot where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated following his assassination. A black stone platform of black marble commemorating the Father of the Nation is surrounded by a beautiful park. Four other memorials are in proximity to this attraction in Delhi. Veer Bhoomi, in the north of Raj Ghat, consists of two squares in an angular relationship. It signifies the birth and death of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. Shakti Sthal is a memorial to Indira Gandhi whereas Shanti Vana commemorates the death of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru. On the northmost section of this parkland is Vijay Ghat. It is dedicated to the second prime minister of India, Lal Bahadur Shastri. Gandhi's philosophy is projected here in the form of a picture, sculpture and photos every day between 10 a.m and 5 p.m except Mondays. Also, every Friday, a prayer is held at Raj Ghat in which any willing visitor is allowed to participate.
