A Visit to Aga Khan Palace, Pune

Couple of days back, I visited the Aga Khan Palace, which is located at the very heart of the pune city. It is a national monument of India’s freedom movement. Following the launch of Quit India movement in 1942, Gandhiji, his wife Kasturba, his secretary Mahadevbhai Desai were interned at the palace from August 9, 1942 to May 6, 1944. Mahadevbhai and Kasturba passed away while in captivity at the Agakhan palace and their samadhis are located in the campus. Situated near the River Mula, the palace is a simple memorial to Gandhi and his life.

Here are some nice pictures of the palace, which is so well maintained and covered by beautiful green trees all around.
