The very first name that pops into the mind at the mention of Ahmedabad is that of Mahatma Gandhi and Sabarmati Ashram. Once home to Bapu and being the centre of operations for the Indian freedom struggle, it is located on the banks of river Sabarmati. This place gives visitors an insight into the life and struggles of Mahatma Gandhi.
You can see many of his personal artefacts, including his glasses, slippers, and books. There is an art gallery and a library with almost thirty-five thousand books in English, Hindi, and Gujarati here. The literature, paintings and the artefacts here are a treasure trove if one wants to learn more about the life, family, and revolutionary ways of Gandhi. Sabarmati Ashram holds the honour of being the starting point of the iconic Dandi March, which was a key point in the Indian freedom struggle.
