The birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi and Lord Krishna’s friend Sudama, Porbandar in Gujarat is an important city in India’s history. The land where these two men were born and lived, symbolises peace, brotherhood, and friendship. It is a seaside city with many significant landmarks of historical and cultural significance. This is the prime reason to Visit Porbandar during your stay at Club Mahindra’s Gir resort in Gujarat.
One of the most culturally relevant things to do in Gujarat is to visit Kirti Mandir, a memorial dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi and Kasturba Gandhi which is perhaps the most important building in all of Porbandar. This beautiful haveli was constructed and opened to tourists in the year 1950. Porbandar was also the capital city of the princely state of Porbandar and is home to the elegant Huzoor Palace that was once the epicentre of power and trade. A trip to the Huzoor palace where you can stroll in its manicured gardens and marvel at the architecture, is a must-do when you Visit Porbandar. For the pious, there is the Sudama Mandir, dedicated to Lord Krishna’s best friend and devotee, that sees pilgrims all year round who come to pray amongst its white marble pillars. There are many other places of significance to see when you Visit Porbandar such as the Porbandar Bird Sanctuary, the Nehru Planetarium and Rana Bapu’s Mahal among others.
Porbandar lacks the glitz and glamour of larger cities and is rooted in simplicity and hospitality. This is a city that lacks the usual activities that come with being close to the beach, rather the sea adds charm and character to this quaint city. This is why you need to Visit Porbandar - to marvel at its architecture, take in its culture and be by the sea without the noise.
