Kirti Mandir, Vadodara

Kirti Mandir at Vadodara located near Vishwamitra Bridge is the cluster of temples dedicated to Lord Shiva. It was built in 1936 by Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III of the Gaekwad dynasty in the memory of deceased members of the royal family.



If one stands in front of the building and look at it then it is in the shape of letter 'E'. It has beautiful balconies, domes.



The central tower on the top of the entrance rises to approximately 34 meters. At the top of tower is the sun, the moon and the earth in bronze with the undivided map of India on it.



We could not see the interiors as it was closed when we visited it in the morning.

Again a stunning building in your beautiful country! You should write a book for tourists about your temples and magnificent buildings.
