This memorial museum is at the Sabarmati Ashram, where Mahatma Gandhi resided from 1917 to 1930. With the exception of reinforced concrete, the building uses traditional materials found elsewhere in the ashram: tiles, brick, stone and wood. Around the courtyards and beneath the grid of hipped roofs are rooms connected by covered spaces open to the outside.
