Concurrently, When Gandhi set off his padayatra (Foot March) in 1930 from Sabarmati Ashram Ahmedabad for the salt Satyagraha, he came to a decision of not returning back to Sabarmati till India attains Independence. On his release from imprisonment, he employed his hours on travelling around India and decided to make a small town in Central India his headquarters (HQ).

Around 1936, Gandhiji established his residence in the village Soygaon near outskirts of Wardha renamed as Sevagram, which means ‘village of service’. Prominent part in the ashram was to employ harijans in the common kitchen to break the caste barrier. Many and significant decisions based on considerable national matters and operations were taken at Sevagram suburb.

Sevagram is around 8 km from Wardha town in Maharashtra and 75 km from Nagpur. In spite of multiple challenges, Gandhiji decided to settle down. Ashram soon became a full-fledged institution.

Some insights of Gandhi Ashram are – dainty huts roofed with mud-tiles accompanied with bamboo and mats besides the delightful fork arts of palm tree. Yatri-nivas and Gandhi exhibition are some of the notable tourist attractions. The exhibition retains some beautiful classic pictures elaborating and summing the life and bygone events of Gandhiji during the pre-historic age.
