This is not an actual temple but the birth place of Mahatama Gandhi also known as Bapu. This place has been now converted into Museum which showcase the life history of Bapu. Lots of photos and artifacts from the time of Gandhi.

Well maintained and clean , the Kirti Mandir was a nice place to visit to see Gandhiji's birthplace. The sense of history as you enter the room where he was born and look out of the window in his room is all pervading. The photo gallery had some rare pictures .

The place where Bapu was born is well-maintained. However, the museum and the library could have been more meaningful.

This is the house of Gandhiji's GrandPa where he was born. We rented a car for Rs 4000 from Dwarka to Somnath and on the way visited Porbandar. We started at 8 a.m. and reached Somnath at 3 p.m. Porbandar could be easily covered in 1 day span.
