The Gandhi Smriti Museum is the house where Mahatma Gandhi spent his last 144 days of his life before he was assassinated on the inauspicious day of January 30,1948.  


A quiet and calm place to visit, the memorial has been designed in such a way to highlight various aspects of the life of Mahatma, his ideas, principles and values. The Gandhi Smriti museum has kept up his personal belongings along with some rare photographs, relics, frescos and sayings of Gandhiji that are on display for the visitors. The room in which he lived as well as the prayer ground where evening congregations were held have been preserved in the same way as they were during Mahatma's lifetime. A concrete footprints trace his last steps from the room to the prayer ground and a martyr's column marks the place where this mass leader was assassinated.


I found just a few of Gandhi’s quotes, which just make you stop and think:




In my humble opinion, non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as is cooperation with good.


Love never claims, it ever gives; love never suffers, never resents, never revenges itself. Where there is love there is life; hatred leads to destruction.


An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.


Be the change you want to see in the world.
