It was the base from where Gandhi led the Dandi march. Which Is also known as the Salt Satyagraha on 12 March 1930. In recognition of the significant influence that this march had on the Indian independence movement the Indian government has established the ashram as a national monument.
Gandhi’s ashram was established on 25 May 1915 at the Bunglow of his friend Jivanlal Desai’s Kocharab Bungalow. At that time the ashram was called the Satyagraha Ashram. Gandhiji wanted to carry out various activities such as farming and animal husbandry, in addition to other pursuits which called for the need of a much larger area of usable land. On 17 June 1917, the ashram was relocated to an area of thirty-six acres on the banks of the river Sabarmati, and it came to be known as the Sabarmati Ashram.
Gandhiji believed that this is one of the ancient ashram sites of Dadhichi Rishi who had donated his bones for a righteous war. Gandhiji’s main ashram lies in Naimisharanya, near Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh.
