    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This interesting museum tells the story of former Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi's life through text and photographs. You can see the actual clothes she was wearing when she was assassinated on 31 October, 1984 and her dining room, living room and study can be viewed. The spot where she was gunned down by two of her bodyguards can be seen outside and is depicted by a glass walkway.
    Entry is free and photos can be taken. Food and drink must be left with the guard at the entrance.

    Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum - path

    by Willettsworld Written Apr 9, 2007

    This is the path Indira Gandhi was walking on when she was assassinated on the 31st October 1984, shot by her 2 Sikh bodyguards. The path she was walking on is now paved with solid blocks of crystal and the point she fell has a clear glass panel with a single flower on it.

    Open: Tues-Sun 9.30am-4.45pm. Closed Mondays. Admission is free.

    Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum

    by Willettsworld Written Apr 9, 2007

    The Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum is located in a sprawling yet simple white bungalow where the great leader Mrs. Gandhi lived as prime minister of India. The museum has photos of her life plus her personal belongings in the house she was assassinated in, shot by her 2 Sikh bodyguards whilst walking in the garden in 1984. The path she was walking on is now paved with solid blocks of crystal and the point she fell has a clear glass panel with a single flower on it. The bloodstained clothes she was wearing are also on display. You also pass by her personal rooms that have been preserved with Perspex screens in front of them so that you can look inside. These include her bedroom, study, sitting room and dining room. The museum also contains photo's and artifacts of her son Rajiv Gandhi who was also assassinated in 1991. Again, his bloodstained clothes are on display.

    Open: Tues-Sun 9.30am-4.45pm. Closed Mondays. Admission is free.

    The Indira Gandhi House and Memorial

    by mariocibelli Written Jul 13, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    20 years after her death, Indira Gandhi leaves a questionable legacy to India like no other Indian leader, as her influence was felt for over 20 years, and she also continued the Nehru/Gandhi dynasty that her father had begun.

    THe house is very simple and modest when you think about who it's residents were. I found it amazing to watch the reactions and comments made from people from all parts and walks of life of India who were visiting.
