about gandhi museum

Once the place of Rani Mangammal of the Nayak dynasty, this palatial building now houses the Madurai chapter of Gandhi Museums in India. The palace was built in 1670 by the Nayak rulers and changed hands between the Nawab of Carnatic and the East India Company, among others. It was only in 1955 that the State Government of Tamil Nadu gifted this property to the All India Gandhi Smarak foundation, with about 13 acres of land in tow.

The museum now houses a brilliantly stocked library, with a lot of options for some excellent academic research. They also run the popular and prestigious Gandhi Memorial Lecture Series from time to time, inviting scholars to present research papers. The museum is also home to wonderful galleries, each dedicated to a different strand of Indian history. These galleries include "India Fights for Freedom", "Visual Biography of Mahatama Gandhi" and "Relics and Replicas". The ground floor of the museum also houses a unique collection of stamps and letters at the Philatelic Museum, dedicated to Gandhi.
