Tripoto.com

Rawatbhata is a small town on the banks of river Chambal, some 50 kms from the erstwhile Industrial town and now a city famous for its coaching classes, Kota. Though I needn't give the town's introduction like this because Rawatbhata, itself, is popular for being the largest site in India which owns maximum number of operating units of Nuclear Power plants at a single location.

I have spent my whole childhood in this small place where I believe never can I get enough of it. This place never stops mesmerizing me. Below are some of the photos taken by Anant Bhat which paves a strong foundation for the fact that this lovely place is indeed an Oasis in Rajasthan. Travel Tip: This heaven blossoms to another level during the monsoons, hence would suggest you to book your travel during monsoons months to take the best of pleasure out of it.

Dated back to the 10th century AD, Gurjar Pratihara Empire built this temple complex. According to wiki: A carved stone image of the god Nataraja was stolen from the Baroli temple complex in 1998. It has been traced to a private collector in London. However, the statue has not been recovered so far.

A beautiful waterfall spot near the Padajhar Village which is in full glory during the monsoons attracts a lot of people from the region during the mahashivratri as it also houses a Mahadev cave temple. One has to literally crawl under the cave full of bats to witness the Mahadev idol.
