Plaza: Gandhi Ashram

Owing to its significance as a national heritage site, Gandhi Ashram is the only property that opens up directly onto the river. The series of wide steps that presently lead down from the Ashram, connect to the lower level-River Promenade. This space is envisioned as a multi-functional public space. The visualizations show the transformation of the space into an amphitheatre, where the existing steps serve as seating, and the promenade and the river provide a backdrop for an enactment of Mahatma Gandhi’s Salt Satyagraha. The lower promenade fronting the Ashram can also be used for religious and secular celebrations, and for yoga.
