The Rajaji Memorial is located close to Hosur. This memorial was built in the village named Thorapalli to honour Chakravarthy Rajagopalachari, who was the first and the last Indian Governor General of India. Rajagopalachari was born in Thorapalli and is still revered in the area.
The memorial has a nice library, a photo gallery with pictures of Rajagopalachari’s era and work and last but not the least a bust of Chakravarthy Rajagopalachari to commemorate the service he extended to the country.
