View India 18 - 19 on bruceontour's travel map.

Not far away was Raj Ghat and 10 minutes was enough to walk up to see down to the black marble platform that marks the cremation spot of the Father of the Indian Nation, Mahatma Gandhi.

Raj Ghat is a memorial dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi in Delhi,India. On the west bank of the Yamuna River. It is a black marble platform that marks the spot of Mahatma Gandhi's cremation, on 30 January 1948, a day after his assassination. It is left open to the sky while an eternal flame burns at one end. A stone footpath flanked by lawns leads to the walled enclosure that houses the memorial. Thanks Mr Wikipedia
