  • 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
  • Kirti mandir is the memorial temple built in memory of Mohandas karamchand Gandhi and kasturba Gandhi.
