This building, now a museum, was the home of Gandhi from 1917 to 1934. It contains his library and various memorabilia of his life, such as his food bowl and spinning wheel. The home presents his life in a series of small dioramas, and can be toured in less than an hour. What I find remarkable at Mani Bhavan is... More

Part time home to one of the most inspirational figures of world renown. Gandhijis home ..mani bhavan has a few relics and is well maintained. Positioned on a now fairly crowded street..parking is difficult. Take a cab or a driven car

I am a bit of a history nut and I certainly found this an interesting little place to visit as I am sure most visitors to Mumbai will also, suggest travellers tag this onto a little tour of Gateway, Museums, High Court etc say a half day taxi hire

the old historical photos gave an insight to Ghandi's life. The way it was displayed kept you interested as it was in a timeline and the information wasn't overwhelming

If you are at all interested in learning about Mahatma Gandhjii, this is the place to learn. His former residence, Mani Bhavan has 3 floors of history in the form of pictures, art, sculptures, etc. The museum takes about 30 minutes to walk through and is a real gem. It's free of charge, making it all the better (a donation... More

We stopped here as part of a city tour. Very interesting place and lots to see and read about Gandhi's life and struggles. Particularly poignant was the letter that Gandhi had written to Adolf Hitler before the outbreak of WWII asking for peace. No entrance fee but you can make a donation.

This house belonged to the diamond merchant and the Indian National Congress supporter Revashankar Jhaveri. Museum has a library that preserves Gandhi-related works which also has many photographs, posters, slogans, 3-D tableaux of key events in Gandhi's life and other... More

An informative place with some moving exhibits. Desperately needs more information to explain what visitors are looking at. The story of Gandhi's life - in miniature - is a truly unique (if downright surreal) reason to visit. The building is lovely on a suburban road very close to Malabar Hill.
