Mani Bhavan is the house where Mahatama Gandhi often stayed when he visited the city between 1917-1934. The 2 storeyed Gujarati style accomodation belonged to his friend Sri Revashankar Jagjeevan Jhaveri, and still has preserved historical articles related to the Father of the Nation, serving as a memorial. It was from here that Gandhi initiated Satyagraha against Rowlatt Act and propagated the causes of Civil Disobedience, Swadesi and khadi. The lobby has a statue of Gandhi and library. The first floor has an extensive photo gallery exhibiting photographs of Gandhi, from childhood to assassination by Nathuram Godse. The second floor preserves the room where Gandhi stayed, exhibiting his bed, spinning wheel and personal belongings.
