Bardoli is considered to be one of the tourist attractions in Surat. The place has immense importance to the historians as well. In 1921 to 22, Gandhiji, addressed and respected as the Father of the nation had launched a protest movement against various policies initiated by the British Government.
In Indian history this protest movement by Gandhiji is known as Bardoli Satyagraha. This was a movement of the local farmers of Bardoli in Gujarat. The peasant movement was led by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
Remembering this protest movement of farmers in Bardoli, an ashram known as Swaraj Ashram has been built. This ashram is visited by many tourists coming in Surat. Thus other than being a tourist spot in Surat, Bardoli has historical significances.
