#5 of 17 in Historic Sites in Kanyakumari
Explore the colorful life of the preeminent leader of India's independence movement at Gandhi Memorial. The origin of the museum dates back to the period soon after the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, which initiated a slow process of collecting and preserving many of his personal effects, manuscripts, books, photographs, and journals. Inspect the archived documents in this picturesque two-storey mansion, which portray the philosophy and timeless work of this celebrated figure. Footwear is not allowed in the museum.

  • On the way to the Sunrise point. Easy to find because it has changed the way I think. Not in the exhibition said the ashes were now much, may not enter except for people who are interested in Gandhi's.

  • In my opinion worth a visit only because it is close to other attractions, otherwise I don't know if it would be worth it. The property has nothing particularly architecturally and also inside leaves a little to be desired, there are just some great pictures depicting the stages of his life with his famous phrase. In my opinion for what it was and she did Gandhi for India would deserve something better than a memorial like this.
