Satyagraha House, Johannesburg

4.5
Mahatma Gandhi's former residence, Satyagraha House was designed by German architect Hermann Kallenbach. Once shared by Gandhi and Kallenbach, the house now contains a collection of old photographs and letters exchanged by the two housemates. Look for Gandhi's most memorable quotes, located on wooden plaques and cotton drapes throughout the house. Much of the furniture here is antique, originating from Gandhi's native region in India. Plan my Johannesburg trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
