A visit to Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad
By cmani on May 06, 2009
I was in Ahmedabad yesterday (May 5th, 2009) for an Architecture review meeting at a partner yesterday. Surprisingly, the meeting ended a bit earlier, and we had a couple of hours to spend, before our flights. We decided to visit, Mahatma Gandhiji's Ashram. It is a serene place, on the banks of the river Sabarmati. It took some time to digest the fact, that Gandhiji lived and worked here, strategised his non-violent freedom movement against the colonial powers !! Its a very simple and spartan place. I took a few snaps and have uploaded it to flickr !!
P.S. There seems to be an effort to create a promenade, along the banks of Sabarmati. But sadly, like most rivers, the Sabarmati seems to be heavily polluted
