Anand Bhawan is the former residence of Nehru family which has now been transformed into a museum showcasing various artefacts and articles of the era of Independence movement in India. The double-storey mansion was personally designed by Motilal Nehru.
When the prior residence of Nehru's family Swaraj Bhavan started to be used as an office of Indian National Congress, a new Nehru residence was designed by Motilal Nehru, a notable independence movement leader, and politician. The house is beautifully adorned with the wooden furniture imported from China and Europe and various artefacts from all around the world.
Anand Bhawan has an important historic value not only because of its construction but also for the major role that it has played in the history of India. It was visited by many famous freedom fighters to develop the conspiracies to drive Britishers out of the country. In 1970, Anand Bhavan was donated to the Indian government by Indira Gandhi, to convert it into a mational museum to keep intact the legacy of Nehru family.
