Opposite Red Fort, Ring Road, New Delhi, India, 110006
To the southeast of Red Fort, between the Ring Road and the Yamuna river, lies Raj Ghat. The historic name refers to the ghat (stepped embankment) at the edge of the river, but today it stands for the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi was assassinated on this same spot on January 31, 1948. A simple open black marble platform inscribed with the Mahatma's last words, 'Hey Ram' (Oh God) is set in a garden with fountains and a variety of exotic trees. Prayer meetings are held every Friday at 5p.
