A prominent museum in the city, Swaraj Bhawan is adorned with scores of photographs of the Nehru family. It once belonged to Moti Lal Nehru, the father of Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of Independent India. Moti Lal Nehru had bought it as a dilapidated building for INR 19,000 and then turned it into a palatial residence.

He donated the house to the country in 1930. Swaraj Bhawan was earlier the headquarters of the Congress and is also the birthplace of the former Prime Minister of the country, Indira Gandhi. While touring the museum, visitors can see the high-ceilinged rooms where several historical meetings were held and campaigns were planned. You can also see the choicest furniture that Nehru used. From Persian tapestries to Venetian glassware, the house is a picture of opulence.
