Rajat Bhatt/Gorakhpur: Gandhi Ashram located in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh is an introduction to the ancient civilization culture of the country with Mahatma Gandhi. The present Gandhi Ashram in Gorakhpur is known as the largest branch of Purbachal. Even today people carry the old civilization and culture made of khaki-khadi clothes from here. People are totally satisfied after buying khaki khadi from here. This cloth is pure because the guarantee of this purity is the identity and tradition of Gandhi Ashram.

On reaching Gorakhpur Gandhi Ashram, its manager Abhimanyu Tiwari said that Gandhi Ashram has always been known for its khaki and khadi. But the mixed metal sculptures at Gandhi Ashram are also an identity. These idols do not deteriorate for 25 to 30 years and we prepare them through an organization. The price of idols ranges from Rs.500 to Rs.1000 which includes the presence of many deities. These idols are washable but not perishable.
