Sulabh International Museum of Toilets, Review by Atlas Obscura


Made by a man on a worldwide sanitation crusade

Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak is a man of vision. It just so happens that his particular vision heavily involves toilets.

About the Founder, Soldier of Sanitation, Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak

Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, Ph.D., D.Litt. Sociologist & Social Reformer and Founder, Sulabh Sanitation Movement

Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, Founder

Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak is a great humanist and social reformer of contemporary India. He has the vision of a philosopher and the undying zeal of a missionary. He is the icon of sanitation and social reform who has made a difference in the lives of millions of people.
