US Vice President Joe Biden on Monday described Mahatma Gandhi as "one man who changed the world by his teachings".

"What a high honor and great privilege to be here in this sacred spot -- memorializing one man who changed the world," Biden wrote in the visitors' book at Gandhi Smriti at Tees January Marg in Delhi, the place where Gandhi's life ended on 30 January 1948.

"My nation was changed as well by Gandhi's teachings -- when Dr King (leader of civil rights movement in US Martin Luther) emulated them to free not only black men and women but all Americans," said Biden who was accompanied by his wife Dr Jill Biden and daughter Ashley.
