About Mahatma Mandir

History

Mahatma Mandir is a convention centre and a memorial located at sector 13, Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India. It is inspired from life and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi.


Mahatma Mandir Museum, also called DandiKutir, was opened to public recently by Prime Minister NarendraModi. The project was completed in a record time of seven months in Gandhi Nagar. The momentous project is conceptualised by the Government of Gujarat and delivered with great speed and quality and sensitivity by ShapoorjiPallonji Engineering & Construction (SPE&C) on design & build basis. SPE&C has given a fine concept and deep touch of art & technology. It is a unique architectural and experiential edifice providing visitors a forward-looking space to contemplate Gandhian principles and reflect on singular and collective futures. The architecture is iconic for three elements: An immersive multimedia museum housed in the Salt Mound christened “DandiKutir”, the conical concrete shell symbolic of the Salt Satyagraha of 1930; a cable-stayed bridge inspired by the Charkha crowned by a windmill at the top of the bridge pylon and a Gandhi Garden commemorating Gandhiji’s life through 79 iconic sculptures/artworks.


Instead of using only exhibit artefacts and telling conventional hagiographies, the museum uses the modern technological innovations to cultivate new dialogues around Gandhiji. Excellent design & engineering skills and delivery-driven approach is visible in the speedy construction of the Mahatma Mandir Museum project as well. All slabs in the salt mound were casted in 20 days. Design & Engineering team researched extensively to pick unique and best fitting material for every part of the building, e.g. very special Korea make material is used in the twist. Eight multimedia rooms were readied with hardware and software synchronisation accomplished in flat 15 days’ time. All light fittings of the museum building were installed in just 10 days. On the outside, the hardscape work of 5400 sqm was completed in 20 days which included mound creation, pathways, tree plantation, etc.
