Its the place where the father of the nation lived most of his life with kasturba nd other followers. The museum walk is informative on the life and teachings of mk gandhi. A small area adjoining the sabarmati river. An hours visit.

Looking at other reviews it seems obvious that this place is basically a place for pilgrims as such. Unfortunately I do not share much interest in Gandhi per se so found the "compulsory" visit exceptionally boring which was surprising as I am never bored. However, I do agree with other that I shared a sense of calm together with those... More

Visited the ashram recently. It is a very extensive tribute to the Mahatma. It is very well maintained. Very informative. The view of the river is also very uplifting.

Anyone who has even the slightest grasp of Indian History and its Independence struggle would be awed by this place. This peaceful and calm ashram(hermitage) rocked the foundations of the mighty British Empire. It chronicles Gandhiji's life along with India's struggle for independence. A must visit in Gujarat

The setting of this ashram on the banks of Shabramati River would have given Gandiji the atmosphere to think and spread the concept of ahimsa. It inspired me to note that a house so simple yet practice, airy and open and so full of light and energy could be the right formula for a place od dwelling.
