About the location: Located at a splitting distance from the Gandhi Ashram on the opposite side of the road, this large workshop is where the Gandhi themed souvenirs are created – charkhas and handmade paper dominate the products. Mahatma’s vision of eco-friendly indigenous products comes alive at this centre. You can walk into the complex and see the creation of these products firsthand. The papermaking unit is the largest here with multiple people employed to create reams of beautiful paper or objects from it. You can also buy souvenirs from the in-house shop.
Brief History: The facility is part of the Gujarat Khadi Gramodyog Mandal and was constructed to make authentic souvenirs in line with the vision of Mahatma Gandhi.
