Kirti Mandir is Mahatma Gandhi's house at Porbander where he was born. It is actually quiet a big house constructed on the lines of a Haveli. The entire house is quiet well preserved with a lot of articles, photographs and other items connected to Bapu put up for display. An inspiring place to visit.

Kirti mandir is a place you have to visit when visiting gujrat. Its the birthplace of mohandas karamchand gandhi. It has been looked after well and gives quite a bit of knowledge of his childhood

A kind of thrill and calmness will be felt when we enter the birth place of Gandhi. It is a three stored ancestral house.

Many important things connected to... More
