Rajkot the central city of the Saurashtra region of Gujarat has it's own charm. The city is fourth largest in state. It is mainly popular for the industrial areas and food.

There are very less attractions in terms of major monuments or architectures, but the outskirts of the city certainly have some amazing places to spend weekends.

The first in this list is the Aji Dam site.

Further ahead of the garden the dam is parallel to the entry road towards Rajkot city. On the other side it has many deep mine formation mainly because of rock excavation. During the monsoon time these mines are filled by water. The water turns into different beautiful colors because of the soil and rocks. During the sunset time whole place looks mesmerizing. There are some rock boulders and hill slopes which are ideal for photography.
