The day after his assassination, Gandhi?s body was placed on a gun-carriage and carried to the River Jamuna to be cremated. One thousand air force soldiers and 4,000 soldiers escorted the body along with a huge contingent of policemen. Ironically Gandhi's death came just months after the recognition of his long desired goal ? India?s independence from the British.

Address: Gandhi Smitri Museum, 5 Tees January Marg
