Gujarat - Rajasthan Border (Shamlaji).

17th Jul 2020
Day 1

Let us take you to the Gujarat-Rajasthan Border.

We bring you some peaceful experience this #weekend to wipe of some lockdown blues.

On way to Udaipur, located a little off the National Highway 08, on Gujarat-Rajasthan border (Shamlaji,GJ) & nestled in the Aravalli ranges, the Shamlaji temple merits a visit.
Dedicated to Lord Vishnu (and Lord Krishna), it stands on the banks of the river Meshwo, in Sabarkantha district of Gujarat.

It is profusely carved and episodes from sacred epics of the Ramayana and Mahabharata are engraved on the outer walls.

Annually Shamlaji Lok Melo (Fair) is held on the full moon day of the Hindu calendar month of Kartik (overlapping the months of October or November), when devotees throng this temple. Though extremely crowded, the fair is a sight to marvel.

While photography of the exterior is permitted, no photography is allowed inside the sanctum sanctorum.

Kindly ensure the timings on the official website of the temple if you're gonna pay a visit post lockdown. Do let us know in the comment section too.

Stay Safe.

Jai Shree Krishna ♥️
