Safdarjung Road (Hindi: सफ़दरजंग मार्ग, Urdu: سفدر جنگ مارگ) is a main road, in New Delhi, India, named after 18th century Safdarjung's Tomb near it. At the north end, the road stretches from the junction of Teen Murti Marg, Akbar Road, Rajaji Marg and Race Course Road, which is a roundabout. At the south end it stretches up to the junction of Prithviraj Road, Tughlaq Road and Sri Aurobindo Marg. There is a single junction/ crossing at the Kamal Ataturk Road and Aurangzeb Road section.
The office of the former Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi is located at 1, Safdarjung Road. She was assassinated there on 31 October 1984, by two of her bodyguards, while going towards the neighbouring 1, Akbar Road Congress office for an interview. The guards carried private grievances against her for the way she had handled Operation Blue Star. The prime minister's house was subsequently turned into the ‘Indira Gandhi Memorial Museum’.
