The Ashram cares much about the authentic atmosphere and about the philosofy of the place. A great respect and great love for Mahatma Ghandy and his life feels here.

The place as you see in pictures, from where Mahatma Gandhi conducted the nonviolent campaign for Indian freedom from British rulers. You see how simple his life was, following true to his words. You also see cottages for Ba, Vinoba, and Meerabai. There is a nice museum to tell his total life story.

Pictures of Mahatma Gandhi, depicting his appearance in a chronological order, from newly-wed to barrister to Mahatma, is simply amazing. One must visit this place to get a slice... More

I was visiting after almost 10 years, and nothing has changed. It is still the same, including dirty toilets in a place that reflects the memory of a man who made cleanliness his mission. Even the present clean India campaign by the Prime Minister who originates from the land of Gandhi has had no effect on keeping clean toilets here.... More

The location is close to sabarmati river. Most of them are replicas. More like a museum. Less crowded. You can buy some books as well
