Sabarmati Ashram Tours

Sabarmati Ashram
Those with an interest in Mahatma Gandhi won't want to miss a stop at his former ashram-turned-museum, where the Father of Modern India lived with his family for many years. The ashram is full of paintings, photos, and documents related to the Mahatma and houses a large library for those interested in deepening their research.

The Basics
One of the most popular attractions in Ahmedabad, and a stop on most Ahmedabad tours, the Sabarmati Ashram is full of Gandhi-related documents, photos, dioramas, and other memorabilia. He founded the ashram in 1917 and lived here for many years to follow, eventually using the ashram as a departing point for the Salt March and declaring that he wouldn't return until India gained its independence.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The ashram is a must-visit for anyone interested in Indian history.
  • The ashram is free, but donations are appreciated.
  • Most of the ashram is accessible, but wheelchair users may need some assistance in the outdoor areas. 

How to Get There
Sabarmati Ashram is located on the western banks of the Sabarmati River, a 15-minute drive from the Ahmedabad City Center and the Kalupar Railway Station and about 20 minutes by car from the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport. Most travelers arrive by taxi or autorickshaw, or as part of an organized tour.

When to Get There
The ashram is open every day from 8:30am to 6:30 pm, including public holidays. While it's generally not too crowded here, it's likely to be at its quietest first thing in the morning. Every year, on October 2nd (Gandhi's birthday), the ashram holds special events, with a non-denominational group prayer followed by lectures and cultural performances.

Ahimsa
 Gandi is well known for preaching "ahimsa," roughly translated as "non-violence," a key tenet in many Eastern religions. There are different scholarly interpretations of what ahimsa might entail, but for Gandhi and his followers, it played out as passive resistance, an idea that inspired many other future activists, including Martin Luther King, Jr.
Address: Gandhi Smarak Sangrahalaya, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India

Walk through Gandhi Ashram

Walk through Gandhi Ashram

star-5
While Gandhiji wanted to experiment values of simple living, he shifted his home from Kochrab to this humble place on the banks of river Sabarmati, which was right in the middle of Sabarmati Jail and Crematorium, the two places where most of the satyagrahis ended up. Sabarmati Ashram served as the power center to strategize the freedom struggle and remained home to Bapu till 1930, when Bapu began Salt Satyagrah and pledged never to return to this place until India achieved total independence and he never did. This place draws thousands of visitors every year, not only to peek into his life and his values, but also to introspect. Lets take a walk and listen to the intriguing tales from the life of Mahatma.
