Mani Mansion holds a significant part in Ahmedabad’s social and cultural fabric both before and after independence. Its importance stems from its association with Manibhai Dalal, a renowned social worker and esteemed businessman.

Mr. Tushar Dalal (Manibhai’s grandson) recalls his grandfather saying, once during a visit by Mohandas Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi) to this house, Gandhi told Manibhai that “Khap purtu hoy to lok seva kayo” (if you have sufficient money to live, start doing social work), influenced by Mahatma Gandhi, Manibhai utilized this very house to carry out acts of compassion. He would purchase quinine powder, fill it in capsules, and distribute it to those in need. During winter, he would ride his horse cart, offering blankets to those spending nights on the streets. Mani Mansion enjoyed close proximity to many political and social stalwarts, including Sardar Vallabh bhai Patel.

Mani Mansion also served as a focal point for nurturing social and cultural lineage of Ahmedabad city, hosting eminent literary personalities like Jyotindra Dave, Jay Bhikhu, and Chandravadan Mehta. Legendary artists, theater personalities, and musicians like Ravi Shankar Raval, Jay Shankar Sundri, Bomi Dotiwala, Asha Parekh, Dutch Pianist Mike Del Ferro, Padmashree Shobha Mudgal, and Oscar-nominated Bombay Jayashree.  Stalwarts from the field of politics like Shri. Murli Manohar Joshi and Olympic medal winner Mary Kom.

The mansion reverberated with intellectual discussions, artistic expressions, and the exchange of ideas.

Through its historical connections and vibrant ambiance, Mani Mansion stands as a testament to the philanthropic spirit and cultural heritage of Ahmedabad. It continues to be a cherished landmark, preserving the legacy of Manibhai and contributing to the city’s rich social and cultural legacy.

A section of the heritage structure is still home to the Dalal family and Manibhai’s grandson Mr. Tushar Dalal is keeping the legacy alive by restoring the property and making it accessible to tourists who want to experience the old-world charm of his family home.
