The birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi- Porbandar is located along the western coast of the Indian state of Gujarat. It boasts of an impressive history that dates back to the period of the Harappan settlement. During excavations, many ancient jetties were found, which reveal facts about Porbandar as a thriving centre of maritime activities. The prime attraction of the town is the Kirti Mandir- a temple that has been built in the memory of 'The Father of the Nation' and his wife Kasturba Gandhi. It lies just a few steps away from the ancestral house of the Gandhi family. Built in a design similar to a haveli, this three storied mandir features separate rooms of Shri Maganlal Gandhi and Shri Mahadev Desai, and special rooms for displaying handicraft items and khadi items. Besides, there is a quaint beach called Chowpati, a bird sanctuary, Kamla Nehru Park and Nehru Planetarium to keep tourists occupied. The town also holds great religious importance. Legends state about Porbandar as the birthplace of Sudama - the childhood friend of Lord Krishna. Tourists can find a number of temples as well and some of the worth-mentioning are Ram Dhoon Mandir, Bharat Mandir, Gayatri Mandir and Satyanarayan's Mandir.
