Mahatma Gandhi had asked that no temple should be made at his place of birth, no statues should be erected. However, we got around that by placing life size photographs of Ba and Gandhi and calling it Kirti Mandir! This is right next to the old house where Mahatma Gandhi was born. The three storey house is ancient but beautifully... More

29th Dec 2016 was a memorable day in my life. It was on this day I visited the house where our father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi lived in the city of Porbandar. The house is situated in a small road. Though it is renovated at the exterior, the basic house is kept in tact. The house itself is a testimony... More

Ofcourse, one visits Porbandar to see Gandhiji's birthplace which is decently maintained. However, the approach road is pathetic and it seems that Gandhiji's swach bharat abhyan is completely lost on this small town. You cannot reach this without the GPS which has limited use when there is repair work going on in the middle of the road in the middle... More

The place is beautifully maintained in the dirty by-lanes of Porbandar. A place of great historical significance, where Mahatma Gandhi was born and where he spent his early childhood gives you goosebumps. The place also has a souvenir shop and an extensive photo gallery. Worth a visit

This is the birth place of Mahatma Gandhi. The two century old two storied residential accommodation of Mahatma Gandhi's ancestors is well preserved. This was the house where Mahatma Gandhi was born as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. There is a library maintained in the name of Kasturba Gandhi. Place is well maintained, but could be made a ;ittle more accessible. The... More

Kirti Mandir in Porbander is the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. Located in congested part of the city, the building needs to be developed as a tourist attraction. The place has great history associated with it. Kasturba's birthplace is very close to Kirti Mandir. It takes time to go around and see the place.
