  • All persons interested in Gandhiji's life and mission must visit this place. It has photos and other artifacts in an organized way. Gandhiji's birth place is well preserved. 
  • The birth place of the Mahatma... Father of the nation... Plain respect, love and a temple for those who believe in his teachings & path. 
  • Took my family here to show them the birth place of the great Gandhi Bapu. Lots of pictures and history. A must see place.

  • Very nice place to visit in porabandar. this is not only the gadhijis birth place but is very interesting place for historical construction. kusturba home is just behind the kirti Mandir. Divan room is most beautiful place in kasturba home on top floor. Kirti mandir visiting hours are 7am to 7pm. social media edicts can take lot of pictures here but video shoot is not allowed. Kurti Mandir is in thebmiddle of the city and market area so there is lots of traffic and very narrow roads parking is quite far from the kirti Mandir so I would suggest to take auto or any public transport to avoid hazel free visit or rich there before 9am. Thanks for reading
