Gandhi Ashram

About the location: Sabarmati Ashram in Gujarat, located north of Ahmedabad, was originally the residence of Mahatma Gandhi and his spouse Kasturba. The ashram is flanked by a calm and quiet stretch by the Sabarmati River. This is also the location where Gandhi started his Dandi March from. Because it was located in between a prison and a cemetery, Gandhi believed that a Satyagrahi would certainly end his life in either a prison or a graveyard. Sabarmati Ashram will reawaken your sense of independence. The museum is the most well-known of the many institutions within the Sabarmati ashram’s grounds.
Various personal letters and images of Gandhi are displayed throughout the space. Upasana Mandir, Magan Niwas, Vinoba, Nandini, and Kutir are some of the ashram’s other structures. The ashram is now a historical site, having witnessed numerous historical occurrences. You can also visit this place and learn more about India’s ancient history.

History: The original ashram was founded in May 1915 at Jivanlal Desai’s Kochrab Bungalow (approximately 10 kilometers from here), who was a barrister associate of Gandhi, as Satyagraha Ashram. Mahatma Gandhi required additional space to carry out tasks such as farming and animal husbandry so it was transferred to a 36-acre site on the banks of the river Sabarmati on June 17, 1917.


Timing: 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (Ashram is open every day of the Year)
