#5 of 10 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.
