  • It makes you Nostalgic. You start seeing the house Mahathma lived. You immediately start Imagining how he spent his life there. You also have privilege to check out photo library which takes you through his life's journey.I would be very happy if they maintain the outside a bit... Once you come out you can see beggars, differently-abled people asking for money. It takes a good vibe from you, you immediately start feeling bad. A mans house who is regarded as Mahathma, father of nation should also be well maintained from outside as well.
  • Birthplace of Gandhiji.... Many things available which Gandhiji had used. Kasturba memorial is just behind kirtimandir.
