Shanti Vana

Shanti Vana, New Delhi

Shanti Vana which is the monument in the scenic and tranquil park near the banks of the Yamuna River which pays homage to the India’s first Prime Minister who is considered to be a disciple of Gandhi. The name of the site could be considered as the Forest of peace. Although, it is not a forested land but can be considered to be more or less a beautiful park where a family could enjoy a peaceful picnic in the calm and scenic surroundings. The park is very much centrally located but still one could spend some solemn moment and the Stupa which is built here reminds to some extent the Sanchi Stupa which is in Madhya Pradesh.

The cremation was done at the same place and the remains were buried at this place and the traffic around the park is always heavy but still the peaceful atmosphere attracts many from different parts of Delhi and NCR.

It is located at South-East of Red Fort and is just North of Raj Ghat and the nearest Metro station is Chawri Bazaar which is 2-mile or 3.2 Kms west of the park.
