The Gandhi Ashram is located on the banks of Sabarmati river. It was founded in 1915. Today it has been converted into a Gandhi memorial. This is the place from where Gandhiji started the freedom movement and In 1930 it was from here that Gandhiji started his Dandi Yatra to flout the salt laws of the British.
A museum also stands near the ashram which displays some of his personal belongings. There is also a library here and the light and sound show in the evening is an added attraction for visitors to this place. Today the ashram has not left making handicrafts, handmade paper and spinning wheels.
