Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Museum - Review
This national museum is housed in the Moti Shahi Mahal in the Shahibaug area. It was constructed between 1618 and 1622 for the Mughal crown prince Khurram, then governor of Gujarat, who later came to be known as Emperor Shah Jahan. It later fell in the hands of the British Raj. In 1878, the great Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore stayed here when he was only seventeen years old and this building served as an inspiration behind his story The Hungry Stones.

Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Museum, Ahmedabad Reviews
In remembrance of this protest movement of farmers, an ashram by the name of the Swaraj Ashram has been builtin Bardoli. This ashram is extraordinarily famous, and tourists who come to Surat make it a point to visit the ashram to honour the bravery of the peasants and their leaders who selflessly fought against British dominance and superiority. In fact, this ashram is the topmost tourist spot in Bardoli. The ashram is built in the centre of the town and is surrounded by a calm and serene landscape. Thus, other than being a popular tourist spot, Bardoli is of extreme historical importance too
Bardoli is a city and a municipality in Surat Metropolitan Region in the state of Gujarat, India. Bardoli is the east most end of the Metropolis of Surat. Bardoli is one of the primary Satellite Towns of Surat Metropolitan Region. Bardoli is located 35 km from Surat and the connection is smooth but due to heavy traffic congestion it takes more than an hour to reach Bardoli from Surat. The new Hazira-Bardoli Expressway is under construction which will reduce the commuting time by current 1 hour 15 minutes to just 30 minutes after the completion.
The Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Memorial is a museum and exhibition centre dedicated to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel at Moti Shahi Mahal, located in Shahibaug, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, near Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad. Moti Shahi Mahal we constructed by the Mughal emperor Shahjahan between 1618 and 1622. It is surrounded by a garden. The palace was built in 1622 by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan (1616-1622) to give work to the poor during a season of scarcity. The Shahibaug gardens of the palace were in the seventeenth century famous, the resort of the whole city, and one of its chief ornaments. A century and a half later (1781), though the well was in ruins and the fountains and water-courses broken, the gardens could still boast of some noble cypresses, cedars, palms, sandals, and cassias, with mango, tamarind, and other spreading fruit trees. Besides the gardens, there was, a little beyond, an older garden called the Andhari Badi, or dark garden, with large ruins. The palace, always kept in good repair, is thus described by Forbes in 1781. A major room and sub-hall on the ground floor is devoted to the Sardar Sarovar Project - a major dam and hydroelectric power plants project on the Narmada River valley, covering the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. The room contains pictures, graphics, books, statistics and other information on the project - from its inception, technical details, construction and present functioning. In 2012 the Government of India provided funding of the structure, however subsequently thr Gujarat High Court ordered a pause of the renovation work
