Satyagraha House

  15 Pine Rd, Orchards      +27 11 485 5928     more than a year ago
From 1908-1909 Gandhi lived in this house with his friend Hermann Kallenbach, a German-Jewish architect who designed the space. Here he devoted his time to living a simple meditative life and developing and promoting his new philosophy of satyagraha (passive resistance and nonviolent civil disobedience) which is still hugely influential to this day.

The house is now a beautiful guesthouse and museum dedicated to Gandhi's principles and offers visitors a contemplative and spiritual experience. The museum exhibits include various photos, correspondence, journal entries and beautifully displayed inspirational quotes spread across the various guesthouse buildings and the tranquil garden at its centre.

The atmospheric space offers yoga and meditation in the garden for overnight guests, along with vegetarian meals. Chic simplicity at its best. Museum visitors can book for breakfast or lunch.
