A memorial to the Father of the Nation - Gandhi Mandapam, Chennai

I don't think there is anyone in this world who wouldn't have heard about Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi, the greatest Indian leader, was the pioneer of non-violence movement (ahimsa), which led to Indian independence from British government. A lot of leaders have been inspired and have followed his non-violence movement not only in India, even in foreign countries.

Next to Snake Park and Children's park at Sardar Patel Road in Guindy area in Chennai, there is a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi called as 'Gandhi Mandapam'. The memorial structure resembles South Indian temple architecture. The memorial houses few statues of Mahtma Gandhi and a small auditorium.

Go, visit this place and pay tribute to the great leader.

Happy travelling.
