Places to visit

  • SahastralingaTalav : SahastralingaTalav, located north-west of Patan, is an artificial water storage reservoir built in the late eleventh century by Chalukyan monarch Sidharaj Jai Singh. A waterway connects the tank to the Sarasvati River. Back then, the tank would be full of water, and the architectural design of the tank is acclaimed for being the perfect combination of water conservation design and Hindu spirituality.The monarch died without an heir due to a curse set by a beautiful woman from the tank digger clan, and the tank has been barren of water ever since. There are claimed to have been several shrines devoted to various gods and goddesses by the side of the tank; however, there are now only remnants.

  • Rani kiVav : Rani Ki Vav, or "Queen's Stepwell," is a unique type of water storage system built on the banks of the Saraswati River in Patan, Gujarat. Rani kaVav, considered Gujarat's greatest stepwell, epitomizes Maru-Gujarat architectural style. In the past, the water from the well had medicinal properties that helped to prevent ailments such as viral infections and fever. The well was dug in the 1960s in a well-protected state because it was covered behind sanctuaries slits. Furthermore, Rani KaVav was a popular spot for folks to socialize as well as seek relief from the heat. It's a great example of transforming something useful into a work of art.

  • Modhera Temple : The Sun Temple at Modhera, dedicated to the Sun God, was established in 1026 AD by King Bhimdev I of the Solanki dynasty and is one of the famous heritage sites near Ahmedabad. This temple not only exhibits the Solanki monarchs' construction ability, but it also speaks favorably of the governing dynasty's devout enthusiasm at the time. This temple, like the Sun Temple in Konark, was erected so that the first rays of the sun fell on the image of Lord Surya at the equinoxes. The temple was ravaged by Mahmud Ghazni, yet its architectural splendor remains. The temple is currently closed for worship, and it is a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India.The temple complex is divided into three sections: the main temple with a GarbhaGriha and GudaMandap, a detached Sabha Mandap, and Surya Kunda. Surya Kund, also known as Rama Kund, is a rectangular, stepped tank used to hold water and execute Sun God worship ceremonies. The kund is distinguished by 108 small shrines at various levels, which can be reached through staircases located throughout the tank. Aside from these, there are four major shrines around the tank dedicated to Lord Vishnu, Lord Ganesh, Natraja, and Sitala Mata. The temple is regarded as one of the most important Harijtourist attractions.
