“ On the banks of the Yamuna River, this peaceful park contains a simple black-marble platform marking the spot where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated following his assassination in 1948. This memorial is a thought-provoking spot, inscribed with what are said to have been Gandhi’s final words, Hai Ram (Oh, God). Every Friday (the day he died) commemorative prayers are held here at 5pm, as well as on 2 October and 30 January, his birth and death anniversaries. ”
Across Kisan Ghat Rd is the Gandhi Darshan, a pavilion displaying photos relating to the Mahatma. Nearby memorials commemorate where Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were cremated.
