Rudabai Stepwell Aka Adalaj Stepwell
AdalajOne our way back, we took made a stopover at the Adalaj stepwells. While there are quite a few stepwells in India, this one is quite unique. If you can ignore the tourists clicking selfies and the now-dirty water of the stepwell, the structure has a lot to offer.There is also a tree outside the premise which has roots deep in the ground, and is possibly centuries old. It's a luxury to see that some trees have survived the test of time, and are rooted so deep in our nature that nothing destroy them. They show, that nature will survive, we may not.This brought us to the end of the weekend trip. On both days we came back to our home in Ahmedabad. If you're visiting, you can also stay in the city and make day trips to these places.

Since I was travelling with a small group , we hired a cab for the day to take us to the temple & on our way back we covered another restored archeological site- Adalaj ni vav (step well) . The drive to the Modhera was quite comfortable, with highways in Gujarat being the best in the country and had vast fields of the seasonal plantation. The best time to visit this part of the country will be in winter months from Nov-Feb, as temperatures can be quite high in summers.
