    Mumbai must be lucky to have Mani Bhavan.Its place where Gandhiji used to
    stay there from 1917-1934. Its one of the important Gandhi Memorial Museums in the country and it acts as research institute in Ghandhian thought&Rural Development by the Mumbai Unversity.Ground floor ,they have liabrary,more than 50,000 books for reference &lending section.

    The pic you see is,where Ganddhiji living room at second floor ,they are trying to
    preserve as far as possible,visiters can see thro glass.
    First floor can see Picture Gallery,displaying from Ganddji life,all orignal pics.
    From his childhood to later years.
    There is one room, min figures showing important event in Gandhiji life,
    it must be more than 28 tableaux ,with good lighting arrangement.Interesting to see small figures.

    Have a look of few pic at my travalogue.
    I thought there wont be any crowd here,i find many foreigners,with guide.
    It was really nice to see people, interested to know about Gandhiji.
    Inside ground floor,near entrance they have sales counter,can buy Postage stamps,Statues etc

    Working hours,9.30am to 6pm on all days open.

    Located on leafy Laburnum Road, a quiet lane named after its shady trees, Mani Bhavan is the old Mumbai residence of Mahatma Gandhi. It's a pretty, two-storied structure that now houses a reference library with over 2000 books, a photo exhibition of the Mahatma's life, and well preserved memorabilia, including an old charkha or spinning wheel that Gandhiji used to use. Today, its only a symbolic exhibit that lies unused, but many old Gandhians still visit the place to pay homage to their hero and demonstrate the noble art of spinning your own yarn!

    On the second floor of Mani Bhavan is the room which used to be the living room. It was Gandhi’s working place and has been preserved as much as possible as it looked back then when he used it.

    The Mathatma -- the Great Soul -- lived in this room, with his few earthly belongings, between 1917 and 1934
