Journey through narrow lanes of Porbandar takes you to the place where Mahatma Gandhi spent the best years of life. Kept in original state. Very peaceful surroundings.

EXCELLENT. A must visit place in Porbandar. However, since it is in old city, there is NO parking. Lot of roads around Kirti Mandir are one ways. The approach roads are very narrow. Take care. There is also a Suvienoer shop.

There are no new videos, souvenirs, or guide available, restroom facilities should... More
