Billionaire Mukesh Ambani who owns the Reliance Industries Ltd. is the richest person in India. He also owns one of the biggest and most luxurious houses in the world. His father Dhirubhai Ambani is revered as a pioneer in the Indian business sector, building a multi billion dollar industry.
Dhurubhai had begun his life as a businessman at a moderate home in the countryside of Chorwad in Gujarat. Mukesh and his younger brother Anil had spent their childhood at this home. So, this house, which is more than a century old, has historical significance too.
Now, this heritage home has been turned into a museum and memorial. The renovation works were held without marring the majestic elegance and old world charm of the structure. The main structure has been divided into two sections in order to turn it into a memorial building.
The spacious front yard and the rest of the area too have been divided into two sections as private and public areas. The trees and plants have been retained in the yard which is reserved as a private area.
Moreover, decorative plants and fountains have been newly added to give more elegance to this area. Meanwhile, the walls of the structure are retained as they are.
A walkway has been newly built through the centre of the orchard that has coconut palms and other shading trees. Besides, fountains and watering facilities too have been arranged as part of the renovated orchard. Dhirubhai Ambani’s wife Kokilaben visits this home occasionally.
