Sabarmati Museum - Review
Sabarmati Ashram was set up by the Father of Nation- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or better known as Mahatma Gandhi. He was also referred to as ‘Bapu’ by many out of love for him. Gandhiji thought this place just near Saint Dadeechi’s temple, the jail and the crematorium was just perfect to carry on his activities for the search and establishment of truth, pure culture and freedom for the countrymen. He said that this place was perfect as the power of Mother Nature was much more powerful than the power of the foreigners together. The ashram was opened fully in 1917.
Gandhiji used to stay in this ashram along with his followers and other freedom fighters and carried on his acts of fearlessness to again bring back the dignity and glory of India. He stayed here for many years till he left for the Dandi March or the protest against the salt law on 12th march 1930 and promised that he would not return to the ashram before the country was freed.
The renovations of the museum were later completed in the year 1963. The main attraction in this ashram is the museum whose objective is to put up the memories and historic events in the life of the great man. This museum has been named as The Gandhi Smarak Sangrahanalaya and was established in the year 1951. It also houses many books, manuscripts and photocopies of important documents.
The beautiful things include portraits of Gandhiji with his wife Kasturba and other things used by Gandhiji himself like his study table and his spinning wheel, which is the major symbol of this ashram. There is a wide range of books in Indian languages and most importantly the autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi. The ashram highly promotes local handicrafts and these are sold along with other books, etc for no profit at all.
The ashram does many other activities, such as-
- Preserving the old photographs, paintings, etc related to Gandhiji.
- Microfilming, lamination and preservation of negatives.
- Putting up the entire history of the freedom struggle of India.
- Promotion of the Gandhian School of thoughts and activities.

Sabarmati Museum, Ahmedabad Reviews
Serene place, very calm and quiet. Even animal knows that non violence is principle in this area. So they are not scared of human. You feel as if you are visiting a place where Mahatma Gandhi lived just few days back. You can feel his presence felt...
Average time required is around 2 hrs. Closes at 6.30pm( but not sharp). No tickets. And photos are allowed inside and everywhere. You can enjoy view of Sabarmati river just in front of ashram. Toilet facilities are good inside. Take your own water. And read something about history and Gandhiji and this ashram before you visit to get maximum out of it.
Really a nice place to visit and learn, see the past of India. This not only about how and where Gandhi lived, but about the simplicity and many confessions by Gandhi. He was not a person who never made mistakes though he is an iconic person. Must visit once and please maintain the decorum is my only request. Thank you
This is a good place to know about Gandhi and its living standards. He had a simple living standard with weaving KHADA. His life and his deeds are mentioned and viewed in the Sabarmati Ashram. You can have a good time if you are curious to know about him. There is a section of every department to know him with starting to end. He is still a famous personality.
The place is very simple and very progressive. Sir Charles Correa, the architect thought of MK Gandhi and made this place accordingly. The windows are very big and the beams and columns looks like floating. The Sabarmati River embraces the building from the front. One can find peace here, just like the character of the building. Very good atmosphere around
