Gandhi Memorial Museum, Madurai
Madurai Gandhi Museum
Gandhi Memorial Museum is situated at Tallakulam, Madurai. This place takes you back to the moments that every citizen of India should remember and should be thankful for.
Many pictures of Gandhi from his childhood to his last journey to the crematorium have been depicted in the Museum.
A few years after the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, the government requested donations from the public to start a trust and construct a museum. Both poor and rich people contributed to the cause.
Here, it is believed that the last piece of cloth worn by Gandhiji is preserved with the bloodstains on it in a vacuum glass box.
Original letters written by Gandhi addressed to Narayanan Sathsangi of Devakottai is preserved here. Gandhi’s letter congratulating Bharathi, a freedom fighter too, and also a letter written to Mr. Adolf Hitler that starts with ‘Dear friend’ are also preserved here.
This place will let us understand the significance of Babuji and the sacrifice he did for our Nation.
