Kirti Mandir

Memorial in Western Saurashtra

This memorial to Gandhi, next to the house where he was born, in the town of Porbandar, was built in 1950. Reflecting Gandhi’s age when he died, it’s 79ft high and has 79 candle holders; symbols from all the world’s major religions are incorporated. There’s a small bookshop and photographic exhibition (take the stairs by the entrance).
