Service Description

Gandhi arrived in 1893 to work as a legal representative for the Indian immigrants; he became a leader of the struggle against segregation before leaving for India to fulfill his destiny. This journey truly gives you an insight into the philosophy of Gandhi and the legacy of his life in Johannesburg. Highlights Hamid Mosque This is a mosque build for the Johannesburg Muslims from Sultan Abdulhamid II. He served as the Imam of Quwatul Islam Masjid in Rander and was well renowned for his beautiful recitation of the Quran-e-Kareem. Indian Crematorium Gandhi played a role in the building of the first Hindu crematorium in Johannesburg and the first in Africa. In 1908 Gandhi was approached to help find a suitable plot for a crematorium. Finally, after Gandhi had left the country, the wood-burning crematorium was built in 1918, and it still stands, although a brick gas-fired crematorium was built in 1956, which is still used. Gandhi’s House This house was from 1908 to 1909, the home of Mohandas Gandhi. Within these walls, the future Mahatma has developed his philosophy of passive resistance: Satyagraha in Sanskrit. The house was built in 1907, by a close friend and companion of Gandhi, the German architect Hermann Kallenbach and now brought back to life. The Trouville House Bed and Breakfast Hotel and its restaurant are known as one of the best places to eat in Johannesburg.

Satyagraha Guest House One hundred years ago, Mohandas Gandhi lived in this house in Johannesburg. Today, the Satyagraha House is both a museum and a guest house.
