    Life-Changing Experience
    The entire palace was shrouded in beautiful greenery. The museum teaches so much history of Gandhiji, Kasturbai and Mahadev Desai and the Indian Freedom Struggle in general. The memorials of Mahadev Desai and Kasturbai (and a small Gandhiji memorial) with their ashes are here. It is truly life-changing to tread through the paths that these great humans once tread and watch pieces of their life. Some of Kasturbai's and Gandhiji's personal items are also on display. Kasturbai passed away in one of the galleries here, it is the only locked gallery.

    We visited this palace as a family with teenagers. It is a beautiful place, and as you walk through the different rooms you can read and learn about Mahatma Gandhi. The gardens outside the palace are beautiful too. I highly recommend this visit if you’re in Pune

    Interesting and engaging!
    I found this really interesting. Well presented and engaging, the audio visuals really work and help to contextualise the Quit India movement. Highly recommended, especially for anyone seeking to broaden their knowledge of India and the role of Gandhi, and the oppressive British Empire.

    Educational experience about Mahatma Gandhi’s life
    The Aga Khan Palace stands as a poignant reminder of India's freedom struggle and the sacrifices made by its leaders. Its historical significance, combined with its architectural beauty and serene environment, makes it a must-visit destination in Pune. Whether you are a history buff, a student, or simply someone looking for a peaceful retreat, the palace offers a rich and rewarding experience

The location is almost invisible like. It doesn't scream from the road and seek attention. It's hidden in greens.

When we enter, we come into a different world, separated from the city. No noise, no one hustling around you. It immediately brings you calm.

The place itself is well maintained and tells the story of Mahatma well.

We visited this place on the independence day weekend. So the entry was free, else rs. 25 is charged. Parking is available. We had high expectations as it was one of the highly rated places to visit in pune. The palace is huge and well maintained, however only the ground floor is open for public. It gives a good insight about part of our rich history, esp related to Mahatma Gandhi, old library of Kasturbaji, and the samadhi. You can complete all within an hour. DSLR is not allowed inside. Huge open area where kids can play. Recommended if the palace is on the way of your trip, otherwise it can be avoided.

Agha Khan Palace is a majestic building in Pune, India. The palace served as a prison for Mahatma Gandhi. It has Italian arches,spacious lawn and is a photographers delight. Enjoy the history of Indian struggle for freedom through your lens

this place has memories of Gandhiji and Kasturba. The details are well presented in posters etc. but an audio guide would be even more interesting for the new generation. Only the ground floor is open for visitors. It looked like a dull-dead place. Need to add some life to this beautiful monument.

History of India's freedom struggle comes alive. Quite well maintained & precise information is available. The guide form ASI is there. This lady gives excellent commentary.

This is a historic Palace that played a role during the independence movement. The landscaped yard in front of the Palace is very charming; from here the Palace looks gorgeous. But it is disappointing when you go to the inside of the Palace. It was under renovation when we visited the Palace. Only three of the six halls were open to the public.
