Gandhi Mandapam (Memorial) in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, India, has been built on the spot where the urn containing the Mahatma's ashes was kept for public viewing before immersion. Resembling central Indian Hindu temples in form, the memorial was designed in such a way that on Mahatma Gandhi's birthday, October 2, the first rays of the sun fall on the exact place where his ashes were kept. 8°4′40.8″N 77°32′27.6″E / 8.078°N 77.541°E / 8.078; 77.541
