Every tourist has to get this shot. :)

Thanks for informing me that Gandhi's tomb is not as spectacular as other tombs, just as simple as the man is! Maybe if it's not in a secluded area, not many outsiders will know it is his tomb!

Gandhi's tomb is quite impressive!

Mahatma or Indira?

I thought that Mahatma was burnt on a pyre and his body pushed out into the centre of the Ganges. I obviously got that one wrong.

I love the good solid grasp that the gentleman has of the bored, little boy.

Jose, is this in a standard cemetery, or in a special Gandhi Memorial Park of some sort?

JM said...

@Julie: It's Mahatma and it's not a cemetery.

It looks like a beautiful place to pause and reflect on this great man's life.

A lovely family portrait, JM...and quite meaningful. I'm sure it will be passed on from generation to generation!

The reverence with which he is held is clear in the postures of these citizens.

A dignified resting place, with beautiful trees in the background.

I wonder if Mahatma's remains are really in there. Although I can't imagine myself posing for a "been here" photo in front of a tomb, this is one person most worthy of remembering.
