“Nice clean gardens”
Review of Aga Khan Palace

Aga Khan Palace
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Very nice and well taken gardens , the Museum is very small , don’t expect much out of it.
Good for 1 hour visit if you want to relax from Pune.

The must see place in Pune . I doubt everyone would be aware that Ghandi's final resting place was in Pune . Excellent exhibits and the grounds are spectacular. Just watch your step when walking down stairs as they are a little run down. Easiest way to get there is via rickshaw ( careful, as the rickshaw drivers often have an exorbitant waiting fee that they won't tell you before hand - be upfront as to whether you want them to wait or not, there are always other rickshaws there when you want to leave )

If you're a foreigner, avoid the museum: it's not worth 100 rupees.

The park (which is free) is instead a small nice retreat from the city, which is just a few dozen meters away.
The palace itself can't be visited - except the museum part - but looks very nice from the outside

The Aga Khan Palace is a national monument of India's freedom movement. Following the launch of the Quit India movement in 1942, Gandhiji and his wife Kasturba stayed at the palace for nearly two years between 1942-44. The palace is a simple memorial to Gandhiji and his life and contains depiction of his daily routine in the several rooms there. In the grounds surrounding the palace there is a memorial to Kasturba who died there. A small entry fee is charged and photography and videography is not permitted.
It is a peaceful place to visit and spend 1-2 hours although the maintenance and upkeep leaves something to be desired.
