Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum

Museum in New Delhi

In the residence of controversial former prime minister Indira Gandhi is this interesting museum devoted to her 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 as they were, providing a window into the family's life. An exhibit at the rear charts the life of Indira’s son, Rajiv, who met a similarly violent end and was assassinated in 1991.
