I've been here twice and every time it's as purifying as ever. Come here with time on your hand and to just sit and absorb. Lots of small trivia here and there if you pay attention. If you are in India and Ahmedabad is on your trip, don't miss this.

Visited on 24/08/2014 afternoon. Even on a hot and humid afternoon, the atmosphere inside the Ashram was just cool and peaceful. Visited with my college friend. Inside it, there are belongings of Gandhiji. Some photos of historical importance. On the back side, Sabarmati river front is there. There are benches and nicely tree clad area where you can leisurely sit... More

I visited the ashram back in 1997 and I presume it is just the same also these days, as change is very slow in those parts of the world. Another understandable reason is that it should in fact preserve the feeling of greatness immersed in sheer simplicity, because this is what the entire life of Gandhi has been all about.... More

Its about the Great Gandhi, so of course I wanted to go visit as I am very interested. A peaceful place and very thought provoking. Lots of photos of the great man and of those that he encountered but sadly no text to accompany them so you could not really engage wholly with the photo. The place is need of... More

there are places when you reconnect with your values and the values of humanity. The ashram has museum facilities inside the ashram who is a museum it self, where you can walk, see, experiment the home of Gandhi and connect with the place where he lived and meditate and formed his peaceful revolution.

This is a small place but has very interesting and valuable information on life of M Gandhi. The place is surrounded by large gardens and the riverside behind the ashram. The visit is well worth the time one can spend here. The library could have better seating and larger access area. One must visit the place as a mark of... More
