About Anand Bhawan, Allahabad

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.

Anand Bhawan, Allahabad Reviews


  • Historical place, witnessed so many important events of Indian freedom struggle. Many fascinating objects are available, children of our nation should visit this place to know our history. Good parks are also available in this campus. A planetarium is also available in campus which is again a fascinating place of learning.

  • आनंद भवन इलाहाबाद में एक ऐतिहासिक घर संग्रहालय है, जो नेहरू परिवार पर ध्यान केंद्रित कर रहा है। यह भारतीय राजनीतिक नेता मोतीलाल नेहरु ने 1 9 30 के दशक में नेहरू परिवार के निवास के रूप में सेवा करने के लिए बनाया था जब मूल मन्दन स्वराज भवन (जिसे पूर्वी कहा जाता था) को भारतीय राष्ट्रीय कांग्रेस के स्थानीय मुख्यालय में बदल दिया गया था। जवाहर तारामंडल, यहां स्थित तारामंडल यहां स्थित है, जो कि आकाश विज्ञान के माध्यम से वैज्ञानिकों के बीच में विज्ञान के मनोदशा को ज्योतिष विज्ञान और विज्ञान पर बढावा देने का प्रयास कर रहा है। The Anand Bhavan is a historic house museum in Allahabad, India focusing on the Nehru Family. It was constructed by Indian political leader Motilal Nehru in the 1930s to serve as the residence of the Nehru family when the original mansion Swaraj Bhavan (previously called Anand Bhavan) was transformed into the local headquarters of the Indian National Congress. Jawahar Planetarium, the planetarium is situated here, which has been striving to inculcate scientific temper among masses through its sky shows on astronomy and science.

  • This the place where Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru used to live. The maintenance of this museum is good but it's entry ticket is costly for the normal people. Two types of tickets are available at the counter for visiting the different floors in the museum. There is also a little library with the book seller counter. Over all, the place is nice for visiting information wise as well as beautification wise.

  • Nice place to revisit our past. Freedom struggle and Nehru's complete family diagram is explained precisely by the images. It also has a book store where from you can buy self help books and autobiographies of laureates.
