Gandhi Memorial, Kanyakumari Reviews

  • Had a great time exploring the Gandhi's life story and it also have a Government's Tamil Museum (Costly for Foreigners but worth spending) inside. Pros: 1.Many things about Gandhi is available, needs a whole day to explore. 2.Mobiles and Cameras are allowed but costs Rs.50. 3.Silent surrounding and good ventilation available. 4.Has things weared by Gandhi especially the blood stained cloth of Gandhi which he was wearing at his death. 5.It has a stationary store containing Gandhi's books and other good stuffs. 6.Good maintenance. Cons: 1.Tickets and stuffs are costly. 2.Felt quite boring and sleepy.

  • Museum hosts a vast collection of items in memory of Mahatma Gandhi. Items include letters, books, household items used and blood stained cloth of Gandhi which was worn by him before demise. A collection of pictorial displays are available which gives a brief history about fall of Indian empire, rise of British and finally the Independence. The entire place is neatly maintained and it would be better if the ground floor of the museum can be open for visitors.

  • It was a good experience. You can know about our Indian Independence right from the entry of foreigners. Several incidents will give you a patriotic feel. The outer view of the museum is awesome🤙 There is also a small museum on the side. You can go there and look through the some models of Tamil culture and others like weapons, musical instruments, etc. You can spend some quality time here.

  • Pleasant environment. School students must come. Great architectural work and ancient building with great pillars.

  • A calm and serene place, it was once the retreat of Queen Mangammaal of Madurai. It would sure give you a great experience , making you feel like getting a peep into India's freedom struggle. This place holds the dhoti that Gandhi wore when he was shot by Godse ,with his blood marks
