About Phoenix Settlement

Only 25 minutes from Durban via the Ruth First Highway (M4), the Phoenix settlement (A South African Heritage site) was established in 1904 and the Sarvodaya house was built for Gandhi and his family. During the Inanda Riots in 1985 the house was burnt down and what you see today is a reconstruction of the original house.

Gandhi started a newspaper called "Indian Opinion" which was later changed to "Opinion". The paper started in 1903 and was continually printed at the International Printing Press until 1961.

When visiting the settlement and Gandhi’s house you will be able to see the printing press on which the first Indian newspaper in South Africa was printed. Here you will also find photos of Gandhi in India and in South Africa. The settlement itself has always played a critical part in promoting peace, justice and equality for both the spiritual and political.

There is now a clinic, school and HIV / Aids centre here to support the local community.
