Places to visit

  • Indroda Dinosaur and Fossil Park : The second-largest dinosaur egg hatchery in the world is said to be located in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India, in the Indroda Dinosaur and Fossil Park. The Geological Survey of India established the park, which has the only dinosaur museum in the nation. Notwithstanding the fact that the park's fossils are from the later Cretaceous period, not the Jurassic, and that it is administered by the Gujarat Ecology and Research Foundation (GEER), it has been dubbed India's Jurassic Park.

  • Mahatma Gandhi Ashram: It served as the focal point of Mahatma Gandhi's nonviolent battle for India's independence for a long time. In the Satyagraha Ashram, which he founded on the banks of the Sabarmati in 1917 after the previous Kochrab Ashram had to be abandoned due to a plague epidemic; the energy of that movement can still be felt today. In order to conduct farming and other experiments, he picked a spot that was, at the time, remote from the city. He mastered the skills of spinning and weaving, and the ashram soon buzzed with the production of khadi—not only as a material for clothing but also as a way of life. The Gandhi Smarak Sangrahalaya is a tiny museum with great visual and written evidence, a library of Gandhian literature, and paintings that give you a sense of Gandhi's life, the movement's history, and people who collaborated with him. Gandhiji also kept a sizable archive of letters, all of which were written on the back of scrap paper.

  • Shri Swaminarayan Temple: The Shri Swaminarayan Temple is the first temple of the Hindu religion Swaminarayan Sampraday. The structure of this nineteenth-century temple is covered in green and yellow sculptures of Hindu gods and goddesses, their bodies dressed in lavish attire. Every colorful arch and bracket is a vivid, varied tone, which shines out in most Swaminarayan temples, thanks to its architecture based on Burmese teak wood. The temple, according to Anjali Desai, author of India Tour Gujarat, resembles a storybook with all of its hues and exquisite carvings that adorn every wooden bracket, column, and arch. On the day after Diwali, the temple gets a million visitors. Within its compound, the temple offers a multi-story air-conditioned guesthouse as well as a well-equipped medical center.
