See an important landmark and monument of Indian national history at Aga Khan Palace, a building linked to the lives of Mahatma Gandhi and his family. Gandhi, his wife Kasturba, and his secretary Mahadevbhai Desai were held prisoner here following the launch of the Indian independence movement in 1942. Kasturba and Desai passed away while in captivity, and today their samadhis (tombs) represent major sites of pilgrimage. The Italian-influenced palace, built in 1892 by Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan III, now houses the national memorial to Gandhi, with photographs and paintings capturing moments from his life and the independence movement he inspired.

  • The Aga Khan Palace was built by Sultan Muhammed Shah Aga Khan III in the city of Pune, India.The Aga Khan Palace was built by Sultan Muhammed Shah Aga Khan III in the city of Pune, India. The palace was an act of charity by the spiritual leader of the Nizari Ismaili Muslims, who wanted to help the poor in the neighbouring areas of Pune, who were drastically hit by famine. Built: 1892 Location: Pune, Maharashtra, India Area: 19 acres (77,000 m2) One of the my best journey to Aga Khan Place in Pune. If you are in Pune or if you are visiting here. It is an iconic historical monument with a rich history related to Mahatma Gandhi and Indian Independence history. The architecture is beautiful and place is well maintained. There are big gardens all around, so its a good place for a fun outing with family or friends. The place also has a great museum with things, photos etc. related to Mahatma Gandhi and other key figures. Everyone should visit this place for a rich glimpse of our history. Also, its a great place for clicking photos and like a heaven for social influencers. I have attached a lot of photos in this review, covering 360-degree view of this beautiful monument. Have a look, enjoy, and visit if possible. Parking is free and for Indian citizens, Ticket price is Rs.25, for foreigners its Rs.300.
