About Sandipani Ashram

History

The ancient port of the Saurashtra peninsula, on the Arabian Sea is mentioned in SkandaPurana as Sudamapuri and Ashmavati. It is the setting of the mythological story of the great friendship between Lord Krishna and Sudama. Porbandar was the last capital of the JethwaRajputs, who ruled this area for about 1200 years – shifting capitals from Ghumli, Ranpur and Chhaya. Present day Porbandar was established as a capital by RanaSartanji in 1785.

KirtiMandir is built next to the birthplace of Mahatama Gandhi, who was born here in 1869. Thousands of Indian tourists visit the house of the Mahatama and his wife Kasturba. KirtiMandir has a Gandhian library and a prayer hall.

There is no Indian who has not heard of the legendary friendship of king and devotee, Krishna and Sudama, starting from the ashram of Rishi Sandipani and culminating at the court of Lord Krishna, in the city of gold, Dwarka. The story comes alive with the sight of a beautiful temple in the middle of Porbandar. This is the only temple dedicated to Sudama in all of India. The maze on the platform in the campus is an intriguing feature.
