Gandhi Ashram Memorial and Precinct Development Project

The Gandhi Ashram Memorial and Precinct Development Project aims to redevelop the Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad. The Rs.12,000 project aims to restore the Ashram to its original glory of 70 years ago. The project intends to reclaim the land that previously belonged to the Ashram, which is currently occupied by the descendants of GandhiÂ’s supporters, and convert it into a tourist destination.
Many are opposing this project because of the possibility of it destroying the sanctity of the Ashram. New developments could undermine smaller structures like Hriday Kunj, where Gandhi resided.
