New Delhi - Ghandi's salt march monument

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Not far from the Indira Gandhi Memorial is this magnificent monument erected to commemorate the Salt March in which Mahatma Gandhi and thousands of his followers marched 388 kilometers (241 miles), from Ahmedabad to the coastal city of Dandi in the state of Gujarat, to make salt in defiance of the British authorities who had just imposed a tax on salt. This was one of many actions taken by Gandhi to free India from British rule, a movement that finally succeeded in 1947.
