Gandhi Smriti

“A Tribute to Father of the Nation”

Gandhi Smriti formerly known as Birla House or Birla Bhavan, is a museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi. It is situated on Tees January Marg, in New Delhi. This is the place where Mahatma Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life and was assassinated on January 30, 1948. It was originally the house of BD Birla. It is now also home to the Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum, which was established in 2005. On display in the Museum are photographs, sculptures, paintings, frescos, inscriptions on rocks and relics pertaining to the years Mahatma Gandhi spent here. The meagre personal effects of Gandhiji too are carefully preserved. Multi-media show is also held between 1:00 pm to 1:30pm. The memorial radiates the enormous respect and love people of India and the world have for Gandhi. It is a calm and peaceful place.

At the main entrance of the Gandhi Smriti, a larger than life statue of Mahatma Gandhi, with a boy and a girl holding a dove in their hands standing on either side, emerging out of the globe, symbolising his universal concern for the poor and the deprived, welcomes the visitor. It is the work of the renowned sculptor Sri Ram Sutar. The legend at the base of the sculpture says, "My Life is My Message".

It is a great place if you want to learn about Gandhi. Really a great place to explore the history of Gandhi.
