Places to visit

  • Bala Hanuman Temple : Bala Hanuman Temple is a Hindu temple in Jamnagar, Gujarat, located on the southeast corner of Ranmal Lake. It is one of Gujarat's most famous temples and one of the best sites to visit in Jamnagar. Lord Hanuman is honored at the Bala Hanuman Temple, also known as Shri Bala Hanuman Sankirtan Mandir. Shri PrembhikshujiMaharaj founded the temple in 1964 A.D. Lord Ram, Lakshman, Goddess Sita, and Hanuman's idols are housed in the temple. The temple is well-known for its uninterrupted 24-hour singing of "Sri Ram, Jai Ram, Jai Jai Ram" since 1964, which has been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. The temple has exquisite architecture with ethnically crafted pillars and wonderful embellishments. The locals have a strong faith in the temple and believe that it protects them from natural disasters and other problems. The Aarti is held twice a day, but it is the Akhand Ram Dhun that draws devotees from all over the world. The temple is open all night so that anyone who desire to watch and participate in the protracted act of religious devotion at night, during the more difficult sessions, can do so.
  • Distance: Bala Hanuman Temple is 2.0 kilometres away from Sikka

  • Pirotan Island : Pirotan Island is one of 42 islands that make up India's first Marine National Park. It is one of two islands open to tourists in the Marine National Park, the other being Narara Island. Pirotan Island is a treasure for nature and adventure enthusiasts, as it offers the chance to see vivid coral reefs, mangroves, and wonderful aquatic species such as jellyfish, octopus, starfish, sea snakes, hermit crabs, sea horses, sea slugs, green sea turtles, and dolphins. Pirotan was formerly called as "Pir Jo Thaan," referring to Saint KhwajaKhizerRahmatullahialaih's sanctified location. The island also has the saint's holy shrine. There is also a lighthouse on the island. Save for the workers at Pirotan Island's lighthouse, the forest guard, and the Mujhavar (servant) at the Blessed Saint KhwajaKhizer shrine, the island is deserted. The majority of visitors arrive in the morning with the high tide and depart in the evening. So, during low tide, one can spend hours roaming about the tidal flats alone, studying the amazing aquatic life. Pirotan Island is approximately seven nautical miles from Rozi Port and twelve nautical miles from Bedi Port. The island has no regular ferry service. It is necessary to hire boats from the Bedi or Rozi ports to reach the island, which takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. Because the beach is quite shallow, boats may only reach the island during high tide and leave during high tide. The tide times should be confirmed with the locals because they vary according on the position of the moon. On the island, there is no place to stay, no food, and no water.
  • Distance: Pirotan Island is 17.8kilometres away from Sikka
