It is a place, one must visit. Remember, that you are going to visit a place that was Gandhinji's home.. Get to see some old scripts of letters exchanged in those times.. Try your hand at the charkha and look over the river sabarmati - try imagining how things would have been more than 70 years a ago.

I had written a review of this place earlier. There was one very important information I wanted to add. On last Sunday of every month there are prayers held in the morning from 0730 am to 0830 am. These are held at same place where Gandhi ji was to conduct his prayers. Please make to a point to attend these... More

I was moved to tears to learn through reading one of the panels here that Gandhi's wife died in jail. The museum looks like it needs refurbishing. For example, many panels were peeling and discoloured. Some areas looked like permanent construction zones. It was challenging to get a sense of the peace the residents may have felt when living here.... More

Stop by as you drive into the city from the airport or the other way around. It should be one of the holiest temples for Indians and peace loving global population. Located on the banks of the Sabarmati river and between a jail and a crematorium, it reflects the beliefs of a person fighting foreign rule and harbouring an intense... More

This was on my bucket list since growing up; it just took 40 years! Nice structures on campus, simple and clean (I guess that was his main philosophy). Exhibits are modest yet informative but it is really about slowing down, finding a seat and reflecting. Managed very well (clean bathrooms!), better than many Indian landmarks I have been to.

Really calm silent and cool place to visit. People come here to find peace and also learn about the various life-points of the Father of our Nation, M.K.Gandhi (or Gandhiji). His cottage, his charkha, the Sabarmati river view from his ashram and the historical photographs all makes us remember of him and the history of India. Must visit place for... More

To know more about the Father of our nation, this place is a must visit. You need to have time in hand as there is ample reading to do to really feel the pulse of the place. Go when the sun is a little low but from what I remember, u must not make it too late as the place... More

Well this is the place where Gandhi Lived. Its kind of museum, showcases various letters written by gandhi, Quotes by Gandhi. His philosophy and his entire journey. Even if you are not interested in History, this place would keep you engaged. Peace is another great factor, which you experience at the mid of the city. Great place if you want... More
