US President Barack Obama on Saturday described Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi as 'a hero not just to India but to the world'.

"I am filled with hope and inspiration as I have the privilege to view this testament to Gandhi's life. He is a hero not just to India but to the world," Obama wrote in the visitor's book at the Mani Bhavan in Mumbai.

Obama visited the Gandhi Museum at Mani Bhavan to honour the Father of the Nation.

Gandhi, the US President said, has inspired Americans and African Americans, including Martin Luther King.
