Shanti Vana

Monument in Old Delhi (Shahjahanabad)

A tranquil tree-shaded area marks the 1964 cremation site of Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Indian prime minister, just to the north of Raj Ghat. The cremation sites of Nehru’s daughter, Indira Gandhi, and grandsons Sanjay and Rajiv are lined up along the riverbank in their own memorial parks.
