Residence of the iconic Mahatma Gandhi between 1917 and 1934, Mani Bhavan is tucked in one of the leafy bylanes around August Kranti Maidan. The house was converted to a museum in 1955 and is now a vast repository of Gandhian literature and philosophy. Tourist leaflets are available in all major European and Asian languages. Photography is not permitted. The two storied Mani Bhavan has on display dioramas of the major events in Gandhi's life, a photo essay and copies of letters written by the Mahatma (the note to Hitler is fascinating), exemplifying Gandhi's simplicity and humility. Nothing makes these traits more evident than his well preserved room, equipped with just the bare necessities and the symbolic spinning wheel (Charkha).
