| May 15, 2020

Spend the day exploring various landmarks of Gandhi's time in Delhi. After being picked up from your hotel, visit Gandhi's modest final resting place at Raj Ghat, a fitting tribute to his legacy. Proceed to the National Gandhi Museum to learn about Gandhi's life and his principles of Satyagraha and Ahimsa. This museum showcases the various phases of Gandhi's life through its rich collection of original relics, books, art pieces and other possessions. Gain a deeper insight into why his principles were so widely acclaimed and followed.

From here, make your way to Gandhi Smriti, formerly known as Birla House, to witness a detailed account of his life and the last 24 hours he spent in the house. He spent 144 days in the house and the room he stayed in has been preserved just the way he left it.

Finally, see the Gyarah Murti (eleven statues) sculpture, which depicts Gandhi's iconic Dandi March in 1931. This march was propagated to break the salt law introduced by the British. Learn about the campaign, its popularity and the adverse conditions that Gandhi and his followers had to face.
