Birla House - Gandhi Smriti Tips (4)

Gandhi Smriti

Admission is free.
Photography is (apparently) prohibited but I did not know this and nobody challenged the camera that dangled around my neck.

What I did not realise when I was here was that Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life here and the small pavillion marks the actual place where was shot.
The museum is comprehensive and contain Gandhi posessions

Birla House (Gandhi Smriti), Delhi

A very interesting museum which tells the story of Mahatma Gandhi and is the place where he was assassinated on 30 January, 1948. Also known as "Gandhi Smriti" (Gandhi Rememberence). You can see the rooms he inhabited and the garden where he was shot; his last journey marked by concrete footprints.
There is no charge to enter and photos can be taken, but video is not allowed.

Gandhi Smriti

Gandhi Smriti was known as Birla House. It belonged to the Birla family where Gandhi stayed for a time when he returned from Calcutta in December 1947. On other occasions he had stayed at the Sweepers Colony but during this time it was used by Refugee camps and he couldn’t stay there.

Birla House (Gandhi Smriti)

This is the site where Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948. I got there early in the morning when it was very quiet and conducive to reflecting on the man and his message and what he might think of the world today.

There is a museum inside the house but I left before it opened.
