Aga Khan Palace, Pune Reviews - Write a Review
Beautiful Palace in the heart of Pune. There is a small entrance fee for the visit. No extra fee for photography. The place is fully covered with lawn of grass. Good location for portrait photography. The history of the palace, the overview of incidents happened here and the importance of the palace in life of Mahatma Gandhi etc. are displayed here. Must visit place if you ever being to Pune
It's a very nice place to spend time. The history behind the palace is fascinating, but the pictures and things are not kept well. But the premises of the palace is so nice and clean. Even though the palace is located on the road side, it provides very calm and soothing atmosphere.
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.
Nice place, has historical things of Mahatma Gandhi and Kasturba and memorable of them. Clothes and things used by them shown in museum. Nice garden to have beautiful click on your phone or camera Overall nice place, I liked it.
A great peaceful place to escape from the rush and hazal of the city. You can spent some quality time with your friends and family. It's incredible history associated with it will make you learn n experience an era back in history.
