A nicely kept garden and tomb and worth a look and quick walk around . Unless you have a religious reason of similar it is only worth staying 15 minutes for a walk around the garden.

If you are a tourist then rather than seeing the Raj Ghat i would instead head to the house that Gandhi was assasinated in as for me this was a much more informative experience. Seeing of all of Ghandi's worldly possessions in one picture frame made be realise that I really own too many pairs of shoes!

A beautiful place with a beautiful park. Just take your shoes off and walk around on lush green grass. You can sit for long time in front of the Jyoti that lights all time around the year. It gives you peace and remind Bapu our father of Nation and his life style.

Clearly a symbolic location for Indians and a nicely laid out memorial for Indians to reflect on the Father but is is not a long visit and not where he was actually cremated.

The Raj Ghat Memorial is a memorial dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi and is the spot where he was cremated the day after he was assassinated. It is a somber place with a black marble platform and a perpetual flame is open to the elements. One must remove shoes before entering. Worth a brief visit.
