A special walk across the city will be organised to commemorate the birth anniversary of the Mahatma Gandhi on October 2.

The event, "Gandhi Walks: Discover Gandhis Delhi and feel inspired" will be organised by Delhi Tourism in partnership with city based Delhi Walks.

It seeks to offer a "rare insight" into the life and times of Mahatma Gandhi, organisers said.

"It is a unique way to understand about Gandhi ji, to remember him and pay respect to him on October 2," Kapil Mishra, Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts and Languages, said.

The two-and-a-half-hour long walk will cover historical sites associated with the leader whose ideals continue to shape and influence the nation.

"It is a walk where expert guides will tell participants about Gandhi ji, his life and take them through various important places related to his life in Delhi," Mishra said.

The tickets for participating in the walk are priced at Rs 1200.
