"CHARLENE'S PIETERMARITZBURG PAGE" Pietermaritzburg by CharleneP

Pietermaritzburg Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 50 photos


Pietermaritzburg (the city) is full of Victorian and Edwardian Buildings. One landmark is the City Hall, a national Monument. Then another Victorian masterpiece is the railway station. Because of his race, Mahatma Gandhi then an aspiring lawyer, was turned off a train in 1893 (an action which sparked his revolutionary political ideas, first in South Africa and later in Inddia). You will find a statue in Church Street of the famous freedom figter.

I will update my photo's when I am back in South Africa, unfortunately all my SA photo's are still there.
