VHP leader Ashok Singhal cremated at Nigambodh Ghat
Singhal died at a hospital in Gurgaon on Tuesday following a brief illness.
The 89-year-old, who was at the forefront of the BJP and Sangh Parivar's Ram temple movement, was admitted to Medanta- Medicity last week after he complained of breathlessness.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had called the death a "deep personal loss" and described Singhal as a "force behind several noble deeds and social work".
".He was an institution in himself, whose life was centred around serving the nation. Ashok Singhal ji was the force behind several noble deeds & social work, which benefitted the poor. He is an inspiration for generations," PM Modi had tweeted.
Earlier in the day, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Minister of Urban Development M. Venkaiah Naidu had paid tributes to Ashok Singhal at RSS office in Jhandewalan during his prayer meet.
