Gandhi's Shrine

Some photos of our visit to the Aga Khan Palace (see a previous post to get the link to more information about this location):

Some of Gandhi's meager possessions.

Gandhi's personal secretary died here, as did his beloved wife.
Their ashes are buried here, as are some of Gandhi's.

If you've never seen the movie Gandhi, I highly recommend it. To me, it was a moving portrayal and tribute to this great man. Being in this place where he was confined by the British government, where he worked, walked, and mourned, filled me with a great sense of history and respect.

That looks really neat! What a cool building! We'll have to try to watch that movie sometime...
