  • A doubly incredible destination: first, of course, the chance to connect with Mahatma Gandhi, and secondly the lovely little palace and gardens. The painting of Gandhi caring for his wife in her last days, which were spent right in the same room, is deeply moving. Her ashes and some of his rest on the grounds. Also of interest at the palace are many photos and memorabilia of the great man. There is also a little shop for such items, as well as a few edibles. This place should surely be one of the highlights of Pune for tourists, but also a place to revisit from time to time for those who live here. I appreciate that it's permissible to bring your own food and sit as long as you like on the spacious lawn under the trees.

  • This place is one of the important pages of History and has connection with Mahatma Gandhi. The place has been well maintained by the Govt and also has a calm and serene surrounding. One should give a visit to the place , to understand the Gandhiji stay here. All the details have been well maintained. Do visit.

  • This place is of historic importance. It is both a place for history lovers and nature enthusiasts. Beautiful gardens with lush green trees and grass. The canteen is not that good. But the place in itself is well maintained and beautiful.

  • A very nice, calm place, perfect for an evening walk. Many photos and belongings of Mahatma Gandhi and Kasturba Gandhi is showcased. The photos are not handled/maintained properly; many look washed out. Sad that only ground floor is accessible to visitors.

  • Nice open green place in the midst of Pune, where one would least expect it. A place with some historical importance. Nicely maintained. Good car park and reasonable entry fees. Good for a small break..
