After having a good Gujarati thali for lunch we headed towards Sabarmati Ashram. Located on the banks of Sabarmati River, Ashram is one of the must-visit places in Gujarat. Being centre to many freedom movements this place is good to revisit the history of Independence. This place is simple, peaceful and rich in history. There are a library and book shop from where you can buy some interesting books about Mahatma Gandhi and history of Independence. Do drop by Sabarmati Riverfront as it is close to Ashram.
I thought going to Sabarmati Ashram after this would be a good idea as I was feeling slightly sick. The museum designed by Charles Correa I felt represented the life Mahatma Gandhi lived as it was very minimalistic and set on the banks of the river, gave a relaxing ambience. The life of Mahatma Gandhi and the setting up of the Ashram is explained in the museum. The book shop here sells great variety of books, postcards etc. I bought a few postcards and a handmade journal from here.I decided to call it a day as my headache was unbearable.Day III, 25-10-2019
Next stop was to Sabarmathi ashram, we took an uber and reach the place. This Ashram preserves the history of Gandhi and presents you many unknown incidents and facts about Pre-Independence of our country. This place is so peaceful just as a temple. Calm, soothing and serene.Here are some of my clicks.
We then headed to Sabarmati Ashram, banked near Sabarmati river. This is one of the residences of Mahatma and Kasturba Gandhi and has great significance in history. Here, we also got a chance to weave cotton in the traditional charkha and relic the beauty of Indian households.
