"Must visit tourist location in Pune, especially if you like a serene campus with a touch of Indian history, related to independence. many articles /items used by Mahathma Gandhi (was in house arrest here) are kept in the museum. Kastuba Gandhi resting in peace here. Good parking, right next to the main Nagar road. "
