“Beautiful Building and Gardens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The gardens are tranquil and the building is quite beautiful! I walked around for a bit before heading into the museum. Inside, it is very poorly kept and is in serious need of attention. All of the photographs are peeling and faded which is quite sad really considering the importance of the site. The ashes are kept at the back of the site and there was no information about them. I would recommend visiting, even though it is a bit decrepit, as it is 100rps entry for non-Indians

“disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Disappointing, as a foreigner you pay more, and there are only 3 rooms you can enter and see information about Ghandi. It is in a lovely surrounding but only took us a few minutes to go around. I was expecting more

“Maintained it well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Here you will see things associated with Mahatama Gandhi. They have mainted it well and the fare for indian tourist is minimal. You can avoid buying stuff near MG and her wife's cementry.

“The Ghost of Gandhi-Ji...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

...may roam these halls, given his time in exile here prior to the departure of the British from India. Aga Kahn does take the visitor back in time, and the exhibits and interpretation help to understand the role of this place in India history. Gandhi was imprisoned here for several years leading up to partition, and his wife and chief advisor both died and are buried here. The palace is well worth a visit and easy to find, not far from central Pune in the Kalyani Nagar area.

I agree with other reviewers that the facility and grounds have not been well maintained. Given the role of this place in recent Indian history, I was surprised not to find more professional interpretation of the history, and better maintenance of grounds and facilities. Nonetheless, Aga Khan is well worth the visit if you are in Pune.
