Best things to do in Vadodara and sightseeing in Vadodara

Popularly known as Baroda, Vadodara is great travel destination for history buffs and art enthusiasts. The town is known for the grand Laxmi Vilas Palace and the Fatehsingh Museum (both located in the same premises). Do keep aside an entire day if you are fond or art and culture since the palace is huge and deserves that kind of time. You can also visit Sayaji Baug, a lush, refreshing garden in the middle of the city. It is the perfect place to visit if you are travelling with children since it has a small kid's zone, a cafeteria, a small museum and a zoo. If you are in the city for more than a day, do visit Maharaja Fatehsingh Museum since it houses numerous rare and beautiful paintings, sculptures and murals from all over the world, collected by the royal family. Vadodara may not be a traveller's perfect destination, but it does have its fair share of history, culture and art.

Canara Coffee House - Vadodara

Located in the Dandia Bazaar region, this is one of the oldest eateries of the town and is just in the heart of Vadodara. The restaurant is an old style café and still maintains the charming, old look as well as the authentic taste that people have talked about years ago. The signature dish of this place is the Poona Missal, which is made with cereals and pulses garnished with onions, farsan, sev and sweet chutney. The decor is very simple and it is a peaceful place.
This place is in the city since decades and it has an old-world feel to it. It has preserved the taste of its specialties and ranks no. 1 on affordability and taste.

Sayaji Baug - Vadodara

This park was built by Maharaja Sayaji Rao III in the year 1879 and it was named after him. The local people also call this park the Kamati Baug and it is just on the banks of the river but also in the middle of the town. The location is such that you can reach this place from any part of the town. This park has soft green grasses, fountains, 2 museums, a flower clock and also an operational toy train. You need at least an hour and a half to finish exploring each and every part in detail and then can enjoy the light and sound shows in the evening.
It is a historical garden, like a jogger's park and yet has statues and band stand and ground clock and many other attractions. It is in the heart of the city and a huge garden with pleasant atmosphere.

Ajwa Garden Dancing Fountain - Vadodara

Also known as the Ajwa Nimeta Fountain Park, this was a beautiful park built by Sayajirao Gaekwad III in the early parts of the 20th century. Ajwa is the name of a reservoir and lake and Nimeta is a water plant here and thus the name of the park is such due to its location beside the lake. This park is a tourist's delight mainly because of the dancing fountain shows in the evening. Since the fountain shows are only held after it is evening, you should plan your trip around afternoon and first start with a tour of the reservoir area as well as the plant. Tour of the plant however needs prior approval of authorities but the process is not very complicated. After this you can make yourself comfortable around the fountains and see the fountain dance with a bright and beautiful color play. The sprinkling waters of the fountains cools the whole environment after a day of humidity, which is common in all places of Gujarat.
A leisure spot for the evening to spend good time with family, friends and kids.
