On the south-east coast, about midway between Veraval and Dwarka, modern day Porbandar is chiefly noted as the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. It has several large cement and chemical factories and a textile mill. Kirti Mandir : It is Gandhiji's birthplace and houses one of India's many collections of Gandhian memorabilia. There is also an exhibit of photographs, some with English captions, and a small bookshop. Nehru Planetarium : Across the creek, which is spanned by the Jynbeeli Bridge, are the Nehru Planetarium and the Bharat Mandir. Bharat Mandir : The large Bharat Mandir hall is in a charming irrigated garden opposite the planetarium. On the floor inside is a huge relief map of India and the building's pillars are brilliantly painted with bas-reliefs of over 100 religious figures and legendary persons from Hindu epics. Hazur Palace : It is a massive, forlorn-looking building near the shore.
