This picturesque two-storey house is a shrine to the Nehru family, which has produced five generations of leading politicians, from Motilal Nehru to the latest political figure, Rahul Gandhi. This stately home is where Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and others successfully planned the overthrow of the British Raj. It is full of books, personal effects and photos from those stirring times.

While worth a visit, there is a dire lack of explanatory information or signage to clue you in to the significance of what you're seeing. The run-down Swaraj Bhavan next door is where former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was born.
