A Tribute to Father of Nation

This is the Place where Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on 2nd October, 1869. People of Porbandar and Maharja of Porbandar decided to construct an ideal memorial at his birth place. The entire haveli was purchased from family member of Mahatma Gandhi and even Gandhiji also made an Agreement and same is displayed at Museum of Kirti Mandir. The foundation stone of Kirti Mandir was laid down in life time of Mahatma in 1947 and was inaugurated and open for Nation 27.5.1950 by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. A nice memorial and first attraction must be visited by every tourist visiting Porbandar.
