At a distance of 2.5 Kms from Bangalore City Railway Station, Gandhi Bhavan is situated on the Kumara Krupa Road. Gandhi Bhawan was started as Gandhi Smaraka Nidhi (GSN), under the chairmanship of Dr Rajendra Prasad, the then President of India. It is a serene place where one can get a complete insight of Gandhiji's life and teachings.
The main aim of Gandhi Bhavan in Bangalore was to propagate Gandhian philosophies and ideals among the people of the state, especially among the youth. This building houses an excellent collection of rare photographs and letters of the Mahatma. Pictures of Gandhi's childhood to the last day of his life are displayed here. This is presently used as a venue for sessions, meetings and seminars based on the life and works of Mahatma Gandhi. Every year on 2nd October special programs are held to pay tribute to Gandhi, the great Indian Independence activist.
