Aga Khan Palace Pune

Aga Khan Palace is a beautiful palace built amidst sprawling gardens. It was built by Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan III in the 19th century. He did so to generate employment for the poor who were badly hit by a famine.

This palace once served as the place of imprisonment for Mahatma Gandhi. He lived here with his wife Kasturba, secretary Mahadev Desai and Sarojini Naidu.

Today, the long corridors and large halls of Aga Khan Palace have been turned into a museum. And it’s one of the must-visit places in Yerwada Pune. It has many of Mahatma Gandhi’s personal items on display. The collection includes clothes, slippers, and utensils, among other items. It also has some personal letters and a rich collection of pictures.

This place also has samadhis of Kasturba Gandhi and Mahadev Desai who died here. Some of Mahatma Gandhi’s ashes are also placed next to the samadhis.
