Place To Visit
Sabarmati Ashram is the most visited tourist spot, one should miss visiting!
Sabarmati Ashram, once the home of Mahatma Gandhi and his wife Kasturba, is where Gandhiji began the legendary Dandi March. It is located 5 kilometres north of Ahmedabad's city centre, on a peaceful and quiet stretch of the Sabarmati River. The 'Gandhi Ashram,' 'Mahatma Gandhi Ashram,' and, most crucially, the 'Satyagraha Ashram,' is thought to have been chosen by Mahatma Gandhi because it is situated between a prison and a graveyard, and a Satyagrahi is sure to end up in one of these.
The community is heavily associated with the Sabarmati Ashram. The Ashram is also responsible for collecting and archiving important historical documents, microfilming, lamination, and preservation of negatives, publication of the 'Mahadevbhani Diary,' an account of India's freedom struggle, and study and research in Gandhian school of thought, in addition to catering to its visitors.
The Gandhi Archives include a wealth of material on Gandhi's life and ideology. It is methodically structured with the goal of preserving his works and speeches for posterity.
Visitors are welcome to park their automobiles for free on the ashram's grounds. Within the ashram, video and cameras are authorised.
