Rajeev Gandhi Memorial, Chennai Reviews
It is a serene place to pay homage to a great leader. That red ‘blood stone’ creates a sort of humiliation when we stand in front of Rajiv’s portrait. Stone carvings look great. The security is tight and no eating or playing allowed. It is a well maintained vast open space with few tall trees. Better to visit in the morning or evening and avoid noon, as you cannot really enjoy under scorching sun. It is open from 6am to 9pm. There is free parking available.
Very nice and beautiful cool place. Good attempt to preserve the memory of former Prime Minister of India Late Rajiv Gandhi. More scopes are there for making the place more beautiful, it seems. Good security checkup is there. Good for family visit. The place is located in the national highway, so it is easily reachable. No problem for parking vehicles near the place. Good toilet facility is available inside the place.
Calm Place and can spend 30 - 60 mins. Well maintained and clean with CISF Security. Easy to reach as it is on highway. Can make out the vision those who pass by on highway and don't have time to get in..
It's the only place where you will see cleanliness in sriperumbudur. And i faced one problem here. One army guy came to me and said "its a visiting place and we are not supposed to walk or jog". But couples can sit there and chat and do their stuff. Also, i saw some army officials jogging in the morning in the same place. All i wanted to ask is that when couples can sit and chat and army guys can jog, why cant we walk or jog there? It's a free country. I respect the ones who gave their lives for the country, but people shouldnt consider jogging disrespectful.
Great to be here and the place is very calm and they had kept these place very neat and very calm nice to be here and u can come with your family ,freinds , and even with Ur children's and no any eating item is allowed the military will check everything what is there with you and overall i love these place and it has our gaint flag in it I love this place
