This is an awesome statue right across the street from the Indian Embassy. It is very interesting and looks so realistic. It gives a nice little bit of information about him in a small, but nicely maintained park.

As my husband and I were walking along Massachusetts Avenue and taking in the interesting architecture styles of the embassy mansions, we were taken aback when we came across Ghandi's statue in the middle of the boulevard. He's depicted in realistic clothing he wore while...More
