See an important landmark and monument of Indian national history at Aga Khan Palace, a building linked to the lives of Mahatma Gandhi and his family. Gandhi, his wife Kasturba, and his secretary Mahadevbhai Desai were held prisoner here following the launch of the Indian independence movement in 1942. Kasturba and Desai passed away while in captivity, and today their samadhis (tombs) represent major sites of pilgrimage. The Italian-influenced palace, built in 1892 by Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan III, now houses the national memorial to Gandhi, with photographs and paintings capturing moments from his life and the independence movement he inspired.

  • One of the important place linked with Mahatma Gandhi. The place where Kasturba Gandhi and Mahadev Desai had their last breath. The place was used as jail during Quit India Movement and where Gandhi ji gave slogan of "Karo ya Maro" (one can view the page written by him). The place has very rare pictures of that time and articles used by Gandhi ji. The Garden is also well maintained.
  • Very good and calm place. Very less crowd. Very well maintained. The exhibition of all historical related stuff is also interesting. Must visit again if you live in Pune to have some peace of mind :)
  • One of the place to find history in present... Gandhi ji was serving his jail term here.. It was originally built by sir sayad ahamad Khan.
