Gandhi spent 21 years in South Africa from 1893-1914; and accomplished much during this period including his philosophy of passive resistance: Satyagraha in Sanskrit. The home is situated in Orchards, Johannesburg. This house, in the residential neighbourhood of Orchards, Johannesburg, was the home of Mohandas Gandhi from 1908 to 1909. Within these walls, the future Mahatma created and developed his philosophy of passive resistance: Satyagraha (in Sanskrit). This pacifist method of protest he would go on and eventually employ in India leading the country to independence.
Satyagraha House was recently restored by a team of historians, architects, curators and interior designers. Today it is registered as part of South Africa’s historical heritage; you can visit the museum as a day visitor or go full out and spend the night in this spiritual haven…..
