Indira Gandhi governed India for almost two decades until she was assassinated by her own Sikh bodyguards on October 31, 1984 as she strolled in her garden. Pictured here is the path where she was assassinated; now a memorial.
Indira Gandhi museum conserves some of the belongings of Indira Gandhi, including the sari she was wearing when she was assassinated. There is a collection of photographs, which record the Nationalist movement and the Nehru-Gandhi family.
A modest bungalow, it is furnished simply and hung with photographs narrating her life from childhood days with the Mahatma to later off-duty relaxation with her grandchildren Rahul, Priyanka and Varun. It is surrounded by a charming garden where you can hear Mrs Gandhi's speeches from megaphones hidden in the bushes. It was in this garden that she was assassinated.
The spot where Indira Gandhi was assassinated is enclosed in a glass frame. One can still see the dried blood spots.
