indictment of the East India Company. Otherwise one of the more informative museums on Ghandi. Toilets are not the best.

We happened to be here on Ghandi"s birthday. There were a lot of people coming to visit and pay respects. The whole of Madurai was a "dry" area on this day including all the hotels.

A place to visit for the Gandhi followers. 2 hours are good to spend at this place. The building houses some of the articles and things used by Mahatma Gandhi in his days of struggle including the blood stained cloth used by him on the day of his assassination. Some 15 relics used by him are on display along with... More
