Gandhi Square is a well-liked tourist destination as well as a bustling urban centre for business and retail activity. It is located in the centre of Johannesburg’s Central Business District, 25 minutes away from Sandton (the city’s economic hub) and the OR Tambo International Airport, which receives millions of tourists from across the world each year.
Mahatma Gandhi, a historical giant, inspired the naming of Gandhi Square. This prominent human rights advocate from India was instrumental in helping so many people change their perspectives. In truth, a lot of what he said and thought still has an impact on modern society’s beliefs and goals.
This square’s central, sizable statue of Mahatma Gandhi serves as its primary focal point. This was a part of a Johannesburg inner city improvement project called urban renewal. Renovating the bus station was where it all started, and it expanded from there.
Gandhi Square still serves as Metrobus’ main central bus terminal today. But it is so much more than that. It is surrounded by fun boutiques, lively bars, cosy cafés, and accessible financial institutions.
A hub of activity is created by the abundance of stores and office buildings nearby, as well as the large numbers of residents and visitors. One of the city’s main malls is located inside the astonishing 223-meter-tall Carlton Centre skyscraper. Visitors can stand on the Top of Africa viewing deck on the 50th level and see breathtaking views that will leave them speechless.
