Be inspired by Satyagraha House Johannesburg
Built in 1907 by German architect Hermann Kallenbach, a close friend of Ghandi's, the Satyagraha House is designed in the style of a traditional African farmhouse. The property emits a calming and peaceful atmosphere throughout its rooms, which have been extensively renovated by a team of historians, architects, curators and interior designers.
Now serving as a museum, Satyagraha House holds a number of photos, letters and journals belonging to the famous leader, and the property itself has become a symbol of the personal achievements of a young Ghandi, who spent 21 years in South Africa.
