Anand Bhawan - Review

Located strategically in the middle of the city, Anand Bhawan has a lot of stories about the struggle for independence to tell you. It was here that the former Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi spent her childhood days, spending a lot of time with Jawaharlal Nehru and the national leaders of India. The meaning of Anand Bhawan is ‘The Abode of Happiness’ and when a second house was built adjacent to it, the new building was given the name Anand Bhawan and the original one was renamed Swaraj Bhawan. Indira Gandhi donated it to India in 1970 and it was later converted into a museum.

The two storey building is a palatial structure with high ceilings, spacious rooms and verandahs with a large number of pillars, presenting a wonderful sight to the spectators. It is well maintained and kept in good condition. You will love the furniture in the rooms, which are beautifully designed, reflecting their antiquity and value.

Before you reach the house, you are welcomed by a small board stating the significance of the place and why it is important for the Indian people. Walking inside the majestic two storey house, you are immediately taken back to the pre-independent era and you will see:

  • Jawaharlal Nehru’s own bedroom and study;
  • Indira Gandhi’s living quarters with some of her personal belongings;
  • A room dedicated to the use of Mahatma Gandhi himself and
  • A drawing room containing things that belonged to Motilal Nehru and Jawaharlal Nehru.

These precious sanctuaries can only be viewed through glass, as you are not allowed entry in to the rooms. But that is enough to tell you how simple a life these leaders lived. You will also see a lot of paintings and pictures of the Nehru family.

  • It is timestamp of Indian history. The house is in pristine condition, it is well maintained and one could travel back in time to experience it's earlier feel. All the rooms are decorated in the same style as it was fifty years ago. So much with respect to our independence movement has happened here. It is definitely worth visiting if you are in Allahabad. Though the ticket price is a little costly.

  • It is one of the historical places in Allahabad. You could see their rooms, bookshelves, their plates, Nehru's iron, his shoes,letters written that time, luxurious life of him and also his contributions in the freedom movement of India. Near to it is planetorium which is quite fascinating, you could learn about stars. It is well maintained. It is one of the tourist attention place, and it also contributes to UP tourism

  • A great memorial to one of the great sons of India, Pandit Nehru. Well maintained. Brings back to memory the great Indian freedom struggles. The entry rates , different for the two floors, are very high for a commoner. These rates are not there anywhere across India.

  • Great monument for Nehru family. Two tickets... one of 20 Indian rupees and another of 70 rupees. 20 rupees ticket for viewing ground floor only. 70 rupees ticket for going upper area. Can use camera. No need of payjng extra for using camera.

  • Because something is better than nothing, we went here. But there were no fans or coolers in the corridors in the scorching heat of Allahabad. Tickets are separate for floors. Rs 20 for ground floor and Rs 50 for the First floor. The Nehru family's rooms inside are maintained well. It's garden, especially near Tara mandal side, have become a nice picnic spot nowadays.
