August Kranti Maidan is associated with India's freedom movement. It is here that Mahatma Gandhi told the British to 'Quit India' on 8th August 1942. Formerly the maidan (or open ground) was also known as Gowalia Tank, because cows used to be bathed at the tank. Today the tank has disappeared and a small garden and a memorial has come up at the site. Mani Bhavan, a small pre-independence house, turned into Gandhi Memorial is another attraction nearby.
