A must place to visit for an indian visiting Pune to have a glimpse and feel of indians' fight of independence. Gandhiji was imprisoned here. His wife Kasturba Gandhi died here and her samadhi is laid here. Calm and quite place.

Very beautiful historical place.The palace is closely linked to the Indian freedom movement as it served as a prison for Mahatma Gandhi, his wife Kasturba Gandh. It is also the place where Kasturba Gandhi and Mahadev Desai (secretary) died
