Sabarmati Ashram, located on the banks of the Sabarmati River in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India, was Mahatma Gandhi’s favorite place. It was from the ashram that he led his now-infamous Dandi March for Indian independence in 1930. Gandhi said he wouldn’t return there until India had gained independence. He was assassinated five months afterward. The ashram is now a museum and a designated national monument that acknowledges the Dandi March’s role in effecting independence.
