Ranked 8 of 31 sightseeing in Rajkot

Mahatma Gandhi High School earlier known as Alfred High School was established in 1853. The building of this school has been built in Gothic Norman structure and it is most popular for its high standards of educational system. The name of the school was changed to the present one, when the present management came to know that Mahatma Gandhi himself has been an alumnus to this school. This school was the very place where Mahatma Gandhi misspelled the word ‘kettle'.

Nothing great to see in this place

This was the school where our father of nation used to study. Now it's a government school and not at all maintained, the facility has just a school and a ground which is sandy.

Great thought

I came here because I want to know about Indian study and students behaviour. Great experience with all of them. They said me how to manage all kind of study. And Mahatma Gandhi was Indian Legend. School name is also known with Legend. Amazing experiences to share with those people and students.

Heritage school

This is the school where Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi) studied. This place is good to look, no fees for entrance, no food available inside the school. Now a days there are rarely 50 to 100 students in whole school.
