Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum information
The former residence of Indira Gandhi is now a moving museum, displaying her personal effects (including her Rubik's cube) and, more tragically, the blood-stained sari she was wearing when she was assassinated in 1984 in reprisal for the storming of the Golden Temple in Amritsar. Many rooms are preserved in state, offering a fascinating window onto the elegant lives of Delhi's political elite. An exhibit at the rear charts the similarly truncated life of Indira's son, Rajiv, assassinated in 1991. In the garden, an enclosed crystal pathway marks Indira Gandhi’s final footsteps.
