I did not like anything in the river front ride. it was horrible. Petrol was empty in the riding boat in the middle of the journey.Hence the ride was halted in the middle of the river It took 3/4 minutes to restart. No infrastructure facilities available like, bathroom, strawler for kids, food etc

Good visit. They can improve the place by making it more lively. A bit drab. The room with Bapu's seat and artifacts is locked. All other places are bare. Mannequins or statues can be placed to get life to this place

I have entered the Sabarmati Ashram with a lot of expectations. The Ashram itself is in the middle of a local town. No gates or tokens. The authorities maintain the Ashram and the green premise exactly the way it was, which is appreciable. The entire premise and the Ashram is a symbol of simplicity. A few messages and photos of...

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
