Shantivan Tours

Shantivan (meaning ‘Forest of Peace’) in New Delhi is the cremation spot and memorial site of Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister. Located just north of Mahatma Gandhi’s final resting place, Raj Ghat, Shantivan is set within beautifully manicured landscape gardens and is visited by locals, tourists, and visiting dignitaries looking to pay their respects.

Shantivan is adorned with well-kept plants and shrubs, with shady trees and strips of bright green lawn kept in pristine condition. Every measure is taken to ensure that the setting and ambiance of this memorial park remains serene and pleasant. Special prayer services are held on the birth and death anniversaries of Nehru around his shrine, and cultural programs for children also take place within the grounds.

You can visit Shantivan along with other historical sites of your choosing on a full-day private custom tour of Delhi. A visit here can also be combined with other key landmarks and attractions such as Raj Ghat, Humayun's Tomb, Qutub Minar, and Chandni Chowk market on a tour through Delhi’s past and present. Those looking for a more extensive tour of the main sights in North India should book a five-night golden triangle tour covering Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur.

Insider’s Tip: As a sign of respect, ensure you remove your shoes if stepping onto the sacred area of the memorial ground around Nehru’s shrine.

Practical Info

Shantivan is situated between the banks of the Yamuna River and Mahatma Gandhi Road, just southeast of the Red Fort. A popular landmark, it can be easily reached by taxi or auto-rickshaw.
