Gujarat's Heritage Circuit

Tripoto

When we think of touring Gujarat, the places and the options which comes to our mind is the salt desert in kutchh, the beaches of Diu, Temples in Dwarka and Somnath and of course the Lion Safari in Gir. But Gujarat is more than that. There's a whole other heritage side of it. I started my trip in Vadodara and ended it in Vadodara in couple of days of time in which i covered The Adalaj stepwell in Ahmedabad, Akshardham Temple in Ghandhinagar, Rann ki Vav in Patan and The Sun Temple in Modhera. And again from Vadodara you can make a day trip to Champaner fort, Saat Kaman and Pavagadh Hills. All these places ( except for the temple ) are Historical and has its own story which i hardly know anything about. I should have hired a guide when i had the chance. Nevertheless, these places are beautiful and a must visit especially The Sun Temple. This small article/blog may or may not inspire you to visit these places but i hope the pictures below might.

Note : - 1) You can also add a couple of more places to your trip. Poicha Niketan ( Temple ) and Statue of Unity which are again about 2-3 hours from Vadodara.

2) I went in October and it was crazy hot then. If you're planning this trip make sure its in Winter months.
