About Aga Khan Palace

Aga Khan Palace, Pune is located on Pune-Nagar Road in Yerwada, approximately two kilometers from Bund Garden. It’s a major landmark not only in the city but also India’s history. Built by Sultan Muhammed Shah Aga Khan in 1892, the palace was an act of charity and was constructed for helping the poor in the neighboring areas of Pune that were severely hit by famine. The building also occupies a prominent place in India’s freedom struggle. After the Quit India movement, which was launched in 1942, Gandhiji along with his wife Kasturba and his secretary Mahadevbhai Desai were locked up at the Palace from August 9, 1942, to May 6, 1944. While in captivity, Mahadevbhai and Kasturba passed away at the Agakhan Palace. Their samadhis can be witnessed within the campus. Numbering more than a lakh, every year visitors come here to pay homage to the memorial. A well-maintained garden surrounds the building. This is the ground where the movie ‘Gandh’ was shot. There is a souvenir shop attached to the Aga Khan Palace where khadi or handloom textiles and cotton garments are available.
