The memorial lies in the midst of landscaped gardens and is made of a simple square platform of black marble inscribed with his last words “Hey Ram”. After Raj Ghat, visit Red Fort (closed on Monday).The 17th-century stunning fortress built in red sandstone is surrounded by a huge, 108-foot boundary wall. Inside are exquisite palaces and beautiful gardens. Opposite the Red Fort lies Jama Masjid (Friday mosque) made of red sandstone and white marble. It is India’s largest mosque where more than 20,000 people can kneel in prayer at one time.
