Arya Kanya Gurukul is a unique school dedicated to female education in India, located in Porbandar, the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. The educational system at Gurukul is a blend of ancient Vedic heritage and the modern educational system with its orientation towards science & technology. Today, more than 30,000 students have passed through the portals of the Gurukul and have been spreading the message of pure Indian culture round the world – a culture which they have imbibed from their systematic all-round training at Gurukul.
