Gandhi Memorial - Review

Mahatma Gandhi is considered to be the Father of the great Nation of India. The Gandhi Memorial is the site where is mortal remains, i.e. his ashes were kept before they were immersed into the holy water of the Sangam.

For this reason, this site has gained historic significance. The Gandhi memorial also displays many images from Gandhiji’s life and some objects that belonged to him. There are staircases that lead up to the roof which provide a wonderful view of the sea. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kanyakumari itinerary 1 day.

In this museum every incidents are arranged year-wisely and in a well arranged manner from place to place where he has been visited.

  • Very neatly and cleanly maintained. Cooperative staff. Very well description of Indian history since 16th century in a pictorial form. Surprised to see the clothes wore by Gandhiji when he was shot. A small museum is an interesting place to spend some time. Good place for school going children.
