Aga Khan Palace, Pune Reviews
It’s one of the memorable historical places. A good educational visit for the students and young generation specially, It Includes museum having Gandhi's clothes and belongings and awesome collection of history in form of a museum ...a small detail of freedom fighters at the time of British rule in India is depicted very beautifully. Nice calm environment the palace has historical significance. . Also visit it if you wanna relax for a while in well maintained gardens and old trees with good photographs. Awesome parking even for cars. The place needs to be kept cleaner. The building has a beautiful structure and the garden surrounding it is pretty and peaceful. There are some statues and photos in each of the rooms detailing the freedom movement. There is a canteen also for quick bites. Good for one time visit.
We visited this place few times back. This place holds a great historical significance. Mahatma Gandhi, his wife and secretory was imprisoned here from 1942-44... The Italian architecture and spacious lawns make this place highly attractive.... The place is very well maintained.. One can take guide if they wanted to know every details.. So this place is a good holiday destination for both children and adults...
A good historical place to visit with your friends and family. It's like museum of Mahatma Gandhi and Kasturba Gandhi's things. This place has small garden and good place for photo shoot. Because place has good architectural design. You can seat in the garden whole day no problem but keep the place clean. Toilet and Canteen are available please remember😅. You will get mineral water, juice, cold coffee and fast food in cafeteria. Ticket price for Aga Khan Palace is 25Rs/Person. Parking for two wheeler's and four wheeler's is available free and safe. Security guards are available to help with. And this place is not a love point, is a historical place.
The place was neatly organised according to the period it represents. Good place for a history buff as well as children who should be taught about India's freedom struggle. However, mostly presented through some photos and boards with lot of text. For a common person or a tourist, there is very little to see. You could probably do a self-guided tour in 15-30 minutes. It’s okay to visit the place if you are on the way and you wanna see everything that comes in. Decent collection of history in form of a museum. Also visit it if you wanna relax for a while in well maintained gardens and old trees with good photographs. Awesome parking even for cars. Entry fees : 15 Rs Photography charges : 10 Rs Closing time : 5.30 pm
Very wonderful palace and Extremely well painted. Wonderful look. Nice garden if front. Only Rs 25 in 2018 for adults and free for kids below 12 yrs. Library and Toilet facility available. Library includes Gandhi Ji books etc.
