Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum information
The former residence of Indira Gandhi is now a museum dedicated to the former Prime Minister’s life and family, India’s Kennedys. It displays her personal effects, including the blood-stained sari she was wearing when she was assassinated in 1984. Many rooms are preserved in state, offering a 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.
