Concierge.com's insider take:

After Gandhi was assassinated in 1948, his body was cremated, and the site is now a national shrine. A black marble slab sits in a large courtyard, inscribed with the great man's last words: "He Ram!" ("Oh God!"). Passages written by Gandhi, translated into many languages, adorn the walls around the shrine. Across the boulevard is the National Gandhi Museum, which contains a collection of memorabilia. Particularly interesting is the display on Gandhi's handmade cotton crusade, including various spinning wheels. You can also see the blood-stained dhoti he was wearing when he was killed—at once grisly and poignant.

Closed Mondays.
