Numerous references can be originated to Mahatma Gandhi throughout Delhi, proof of human heritage.

Also of interest is the Raj Ghat Memorial to Gandhi, just a few minutes' walk from the cremation site.
- Rajpath and Rashtrapati Bhavan
Rajpath is also known as King's Way, is the traditional ceremonial boulevard in New Delhi. Running from Rashtrapati Bhavan, the official presidential residence, passing through important landmarks of the city such as Vijay Chowk and India Gate to the National Stadium, this wide boulevard is flanked by trees, grass, and ponds and comes to life every January 26 during Republic Day Parade, when countless thousands gather to celebrate the country's independence anniversary. At the western end of Rajpath, the president's residence - Rashtrapati Bhavan (once the residence of the British viceroy) - is undoubtedly one of the most magnificent buildings in Delhi, an eclectic mix of Mughal and European architectural styles, containing about 340 richly decorated rooms. Of particular interest is the new Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum that offers a look inside the building, along with interesting displays of previous presidents.
Tip - If you visit in the month of February or in the month of March, check out the adjoining Mughal Gardens, a splendid exhibition of plantations surrounding the President's residence.
