At Gandhi Memorial Museum, explore one of the five museums in India dedicated to Gandhi, located in the impressive Tamukkam Palace. The memorial museum was established in 1959, after an appeal by the citizens of India, who wanted to see memorials built in Gandhi’s honor. Wander through the historic palace, and discover the blood-stained clothes worn by Gandhi when he was assassinated in 1948. You’ll also find many letters of interest on display, as well as collections relating to India's fight for freedom, Gandhi's life story, and the nation's political history. A visit to Gandhi Memorial Museum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Madurai day trip tool to plot your vacation.

We should be actually proud to have this museum in our city..It is a pity that the museum has not changed in so many years. It is looking just the same way since my school days that is in 70s.
