Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum

This tiny but extremely moving museum is housed in a building where Mahatma Gandhi stayed when visiting the city during a period from 1917 to 1934. It was from here that he initiated many of his philosophies of nonviolence, including satyagraha (literally, "holding on to truth"). The exhibits offer insight into one of the most influential figures in India's struggle for independence. Wander through the photographic displays to his room on the second floor, where you can still see his trademark spinning wheels. You can also view the terrace where he was arrested in 1932.
