About

About the Ashram

  • The Sabarmati Ashram (also known as Harijan Ashram) was home to Mohandas Gandhi and Kasturba from 1917 until 1930.
  • It served as one of the main centres of the Indian freedom struggle.
  • Originally called the Satyagraha Ashram, reflecting the movement toward passive resistance launched by the Mahatma, the Ashram became home to the ideology that set India free.
  • Sabarmati Ashram named for the river on which it sits, was created with a dual mission. 
  • On the 12 March 1930, Gandhi launched the famous Dandi march 241 miles from the Ashram in protest of the British Salt Law.
