Aga Khan Palace, Pune

#5 of 50 in Historic Sites in Pune
Castle · Architectural Building
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.

  • Very beautiful place and has been maintained properly. Hassle free, won't feel crowded. Best time to visit around 3PM to 4PM with your family or friends. Abundant parking space. Palace surrounded by lush green garden. They also provide merchandise at the back of the palace. Historic place where Kasturba Gandhi, wife of Mahatma Gandhi was buried here.
  • Very peaceful space to be and ponder. The historical importance and the preserves made me think more of my stand as a national. The architecture provides lots of frames for people with a taste for photography. Keep it clean and it calms you too.
