By Air - A flight from New Delhi to Ahmedabad or a direct flight from New Delhi to Bhuj Airport which run almost everyday.
Day 6:A long 8 hours journey awaited us today from Dwarka to Ahmedabad. We left at 9:30 AM and reached our hotel House of MG by 5:30 PM.House of MG is an excellent property and one of the best heritage hotel I have ever stayed in. The hotel is situated in the old part of the city and really provides an old-world charm. They have merged heritage with luxury to give a unique experience. It has 2 properties: Mangaldas ni haveli 1 and 2. We stayed in 1 where there much hyped Agashiye restaurant is present. The havelis have been beautifully restored. Though we had an idea that we chose the best property in Ahmedabad but once we reached here we were completely spellbound with its grandeur & awestruck interiors.They conduct short tours of 2 hours daily to nearby old city, jain temples, markets, havelis both at night and during the day. Ticket is Rs. 250. I really wanted to go for night tour but so couldn’t go for it since I was dead tired. They have a museum showcasing different fabrics, embroideries, handlooms and other textiles available across Gujarat and India. Hotel guests have free access to this museum. Then, there is a small shop inside the hotel premises called “Local Artisans” selling Gujarati traditional handicrafts, home décor things, clothes, souvenirs at over the top prices!
Day 1Our flight was at 2:30 PM. On reaching Ahmedabad we called our driver whose details had already been shared with us by Safari.com. We reached Hotel Nami Residency by 5 PM. A descent budget hotel with average rooms, service and food.We left for Law Garden weekend evening market in evening. It is a flea market which is famous for Gujarati traditional (predominantly Kutch) dresses, accessories, home décor and footwear. Small stalls with colorful display of clothes like Lehenga-choli, dupattas, stoles, etc. are lined along the road and are thronged by tourists and locals alike. Bargaining is at its peak here! Our driver specifically mentioned to shop for these traditional Kutch clothes at Bhuj or Runn of Kutch incase going there since it will be cheaper, more authentic offering more variety.Law market is also famous for its street food stalls. Lot of dhabas with all kind of cuisines operate in full swing as the sun sets. We had Kathiawadi Thali at one such dhaba and it was mouthwatering especially the tomato sev sabji and bajre ka rotla!
Returned back to ahmedabad on next morning.Hope you enjoyed .instagram id : @gj1rider follow for more stories. and please give me suggestions so that i can keep in mind.
It was an instant plan , next day was sunday and we decided to make a visit to lion safari park which was recently opened in DHARI.
If I mention beautiful Dargahs, quaint mosques, museums, lovely havelis and a market serving mouthwatering nihari, kulcha and tandoori chicken, you’ll think that I am talking about Delhi. But no, this is not the Capital of India but the capital of Gujarat, Ahmedabad. Recently declared the first Indian World Heritage City by UNESCO, Ahmedabad holds everything that hides in Delhi along with bustling night markets, culinary culture and scattered monuments in every corner of the city Ahmedabad has something that Delhi lacks and it is the safety that makes traveling here an extraordinary affair.
The nearest metro city is Ahmedabad, 90 km and about 2 ½ hours’ drive. The airport at Ahmedabad has domestic and international flights. Ahmedabad is also a convenient railway junction, connected across India. The nearest railhead 30 km away is Viramgam, is connected to Mumbai.
I started my trip from Ahmedabad, took a flight to Delhi. The adventure started from Ahmedabad itself as our flight got cancelled luckily we were able to book other flight on the same day thanks to GoAir. I with my friend reached New Delhi around 12 noon. Our bus to Manali from Delhi was at 22:30. We managed to book a hotel near airport where we passed our half day.The ISBT bus stop from airport is around 25kms, we took airport metro from Delhi Airport to reach ISBTReaching ISBT bus stop : For catching metro from airport one has to reach aerocity metro station which can be easily reached by shuttles operating at airport. Catch metro from Aerocity to New Delhi and change from New Delhi to ISBT. The bus stop is just outside the metro staion,you can reach easily as it is mentioned every where. We reached ISBT bus stop at around 21:00 hrs. where we met our second friend. We had our meal in McD and boarded our bus at 22:30 hrs. The bus was Tata Himgaurav HRTC which was not good as Volvo.
The Walled City of Ahmedabad, founded by Sultan Ahmed Shah in the 15th century, has been declared India’s first World Heritage City. The World Heritage Committee (WHC) of UNESCO announced it on Twitter on Saturday after a meeting in Krakow, Poland. Ahmedabad was in the race for the prestigious title with Delhi and Mumbai.This declaration was hailed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani.

Jamnagar has been synonymous to jalebi and fafda for all the other communities at large. But my one night sojourn will attempt to tell you what lies in this nagar beyond the banal jalebi and fafda routine. The journey to Jamnagar from Mumbai is a good 14 hour run in the Saurashtra Mail that takes off from Mumbai about 8-25pm. It is preferable to take a three tier AC if one wants to enjoy the entire next day without signs of fatigue. General sleeper is the fun sorts but leaves you with lesser energy for next day as the sleep would be disturbed. With the usual delay in train incidents one lands in Jamnagar at about 12:30pm the next day. One already starts witnessing men in white cotton Kediyas and a white turban and the traditional ladies with a unique attire of a choli, a ghaghra, a dupatta, some jewellery and black tattoo like artwork all over their hand.

The city of Junagadh in Odisha, is a popular religious destination as well as an interesting tourist city. It is situate...
As the train approached Junagadh, it looked as though a constellation of stars was down to kiss the earth. At half past four in the morning, I reached the Junagadh station. An auto drove me to the foothill of the Girnar, that is approximately 15 km from the station and I realized that what seemed to be a constellation of stars from the distant was indeed an array of lights that lit the Girnar so beautifully and guided pilgrims throughout the dark.It took me 2 hours to reach the peak of the mountain. I was right on time to catch the mesmerizing sunrise. The cold wind that blew brought goosebumps and looking at the spreading colors of the sun, my heart whispered to my soul that the climb was all worth it.I was able to reach the peak in two hours because I climbed without taking any break, yes, literally without any break. I didn't even stop to take a sip of water. The climb is a bit exhausting, but the shower of cold breeze at the peak will definitely refresh your body and soul.Mount Girnar which is considered to be older than the Himalayas is a sacred place for Jain and Hindu pilgrims. At the peak of Girnar, is the 'Akhand Dhuni' which literally translates to eternal flame, beleived to be lit by Lord Dattatreya himself.
I was really very excited about climbing the highest mountain of Gujarat and so as Shreyansh, as both of us never did it. The Girnar is older than the Himalaya Mountain. It’s immense beauty has always attracted me towards it. And now I was about to start a real adventure. Night trekking, climbing the Girnar.Check my next blog post where I will take you on a visual journey to highest mountain in Gujarat.
Well…it is all about my trip to Junagadh District. This time our Wayfarer's Club planned to go for Gir Safari in the Sasan Gir jungle of Junagadh. We were very hopeful about this trip. After all it was the chance to see the Asiatic lions (Babbar sher) in their natural living. Unfortunately I could not join my Wayfarer friends for the Safari, but I decided to join them for visiting places in Junagadh and the Madhopur beach. I had been to Junagadh before but never made it to the Mt. Girnar. This time also it was not on our list, but I was excited about visit to this beautiful city.The moment I entered in Junagadh my first task was to buy milk, sugar, tea and some other snacks as we were staying at a farmhouse for night. At the farmhouse we had delicious ‘’Bhadthu Rotlo’’ - a special and traditional food item for winter season. After completing dinner we set the bonfire. The bonfire was the best thing in that bone chilling winter night.
Junagadh is primarily visited by the pilgrims for sacred Girnar hills which is a home to many Hindus and Jain temples, scattered around the Girnar hill.It is the highest peak in Gujarat State. Reached our point of shelter- hotel Somnath and kept luggage.Savoured Kathiawadi Thali at Patel’s restaurant, the food is wholesome and reasonably priced, more servers than the customers. Thali's at Gujarat do not come with sharing privilege,unlimited servings of Papad,roti,rice,dal etc can be enjoyed ,needless to say.Sakkarbaug zoological park
Junagadh city is the headquarters of Junagadh district. The city is the 7th largest in Gujarat, located at the foot of the Girnar hills, 355 km south west of state capital Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad. Literally translated, Junagadh means "Old Fort". An alternate etymology gives the name as coming from "Yonagadh", literally "City of the Yona (Greeks)," referring to the ancient inhabitants of the city under the Indo-Greek Kingdom. It is also known as "Sorath", the name of the earlier Princely State of Junagadh. After a brief struggle between India and Pakistan, Junagadh joined India on 9 November 1947. It was a part of Saurashtra state and later Bombay state. In 1960, after the Maha Gujarat movement, it became part of newly formed Gujarat state.

One of the most visited cities in Gujarat, Bhuj is home to a number of historical monuments, a lively culture and a hist...
By Train - A train from Ahmedabad to Bhuj. There are 3 express trains on weekdays and 4 on weekends. Except during Rann Utsav, you can get your tickets at the current booking counter in the Ahmedabad Railway Station.
There are some cottages and guest houses near Dholavira but staying there is not recommended as getting food and medical aid during emergency will be a problem as there is hardly any local transport. So it is best to stay at Bhuj and visit Dholavira.
This day was going to be hectic. as we have to cover around 350-400 kms in one day. So we left our hotel by 8 am. We took the same driver and we settled for INR 3200 for Bhuj--> Mata no Madh-->Lakhpat Fort-->Narayan Sarovar-->Koteshwar Mahadev-->Mandvi-->Bhuj.
Upon Reaching Bhuj, we talked to some local people and enquired about places to explore. Feedback that we received for Home cottages at Rann(Dhordo Village) was not so good. So we decided to have stay at Bhuj only. Then we went(by running autos-INR 10/head) to taxi Union at Juna Bus Stand where we enquired for Taxi as syncing with bus is very difficult there. It was 2200 for "Bhuj-->Rann of Kutch , Kalo Dungar , India Bridge-->Bhuj". He told INR 2500 but upon negotiation we settle for 2200 INR. You guys can use your negotiation skills for better deal. After having some snacks as Breakfast (Gujarati-Jalebi-Fafda, Dhokla) we left for Kutch at 10:00 am.
Around 80km and an hour and a half away from the Rann of Kutch is the town of Bhuj. Bhuj came into the headlines after the 2001 earthquake, when almost the entire city was flattened to the ground. There are some buildings that survived the earthquake, such as Aina Mahl and Prag Mahal, which are must visits. Apart from these, you can visit Bhujodi, a modernised village with decorated huts – each of them housing a different handicraft from Kutch and other areas of Gujarat. This is a great place for some authentic handicraft shopping.
At 4:00am the cab has arrived- our ride for next 3 days. We had completed our journey from Ahmedabad to Bhuj in 5 hours at around 09:00 am in the morning. I would really appreciate such well-maintained roads which made the journey extremely smooth and comfortable.After reaching Bhuj we proceeded to our Hotel – Ilark where the hotel staff was really kind to provide us early Check In since we haven’t made any request for early Check while booking the hotel. We wanted to start the exploration as soon as possible so we just got ready as quick as we could and began with the landmarks of city.1) Prag Mahal & Aina Mahal– It’s a a 19th-century palace located next to the Aina Mahal Aina Mahal and is named after is named after Rao Pragmalji II. The place has been highly affected by the 2001 earthquake although once can still see mirrored ceiling, ivory gates, decorated walls, stain glass paintings from those time which till speaks about the richness of the culture.2) Big Ben Replication – It’s 45 foot high tower with a clock, from where entire Bhuj city is visible and can definitely give you some beautiful pics to cherish from the trip.3) Bhujodi Village - It is a major textile centre of Kutch and once can find shawls, mud work paintings, jutti's, and various other handicraft goods. Here you can meet weavers who are kind enough to let you see them work and explain the process. It was astonishing for us to know that a hand woven shawl may take 6 months to complete. It was an experience to learn about the kindness and talent of these weavers who had curated raw materials into absolute beauty. Girls it’s a must visit place for some traditional as well as extremely vibrant & lively addition to your wardrobe.Bhuj is an ideal springboard for visits to the surrounding villages which offers the Pandora of beautiful handcrafted articles. The local vegetable market in Bhuj would take you down the memory lanes of childhood and if you had not experienced it in childhood it will be an experience away from the Metro city stores to the freshness of garden.
Day 4 - Bhuj: One can hire a rickshaw or taxi to see around Bhuj and Mandavi for 1500 INR. Bhuj was nearly flattened by the devastating earthquake in 2001 but has bounced back beautifully. One can still feel the wreckage and the strength it has brought along. Prag Mahal, Aaina Mahal, Royal Tombs or the Chattris and Hamirsar Lake are some of the places you can see in Bhuj. Turn off your hygiene instincts and taste the chats and icy kulfi in the street market.
On our Last day we decided to explore Bhuj, a city which was ravaged by an Earthquake back in 2001 but has managed to get up on it’s feet and how?! Home to a number of small scale industries,Bhuj has become an important destination for Business over the years. We visited the famous Prag Mahal & Aina Mahal, both important tourist attractions in Bhuj.They have been featured in Multiple Bollywood and Gujarati Movies as well.

Located at a distance of 144km from the town of Jamnagar, Bluebell Beach is a great kitesurfing spot in Gujarat. The wind season here is from October to February. This place is frequented by experienced kitesurfers.
Day 5:We went to Dwarkadhish temple again for darshan in morning at 6:45 AM. Morning aarti happens twice in morning at 6:30 and 8:30 AM. As expected we were again welcomed by huge crowds and queues!This temple is located on the banks of Gomti River. It is actually a backwater river having salty sea water. It has religious significance in Hindu religion so my parents took a holy dip in it. Obviously, you will have to come back to your hotel to bath again to remove that sea water saltiness and sand! We came back to our hotel by 8:45 and left for Bet Dwarka by 10:45 AM. We were late! We were supposed to leave by 10 as suggested by the pandit but couldn’t and therefore, by the time we reached Bet Dwarka temple at 12:30 PM, it was closed! So, make sure to leave for Bet Dwarka max by 10 AM otherwise don’t go. It remains closed between 12:30-4 PM.Bet Dwarka was supposedly the residence of Lord Krishna. This temple is said to be standing over the exact residence of Lord Krishna and the original idol at the temple is said to have been established by lord Krishna’s wife, Rukmini.To reach here we first went to Okha in our taxi. Beyond its taxi stand, outside cabs are not allowed to go. So, you will have to take a local auto rickshaw to reach at ferry station (5 mins drive). From here a ferry will take you to Bet Dwarka island. It takes another approx. 15-20 mins. You will be welcomed by Seagulls on the way! On reaching, post 10 mins walk you will finally arrive at the temple. It takes around 1.5-2 hours in total to reach Bet Dwarka from Dwarka. Well, disappointed we came back to Dwarka for our next destination, Nageshwar Mahadev Temple. It is one of the 12 jyotirlingas in India. It is located 17 KM away from Dwarkadhish temple. It has a huge statue of Lord Shiva in its premises. Queues were highly mismanaged. We left the temple post darshan by 4:30 PM and came back to our hotel.As per my observations, please keep in mind following points while planning your itinerary for Dwarka during peak season:1. Do not come to Nageshwar Mahadev temple between 1-4 PM when most tourist buses arrive and huge crowds throng this place. Most people are back from Bet Dwarka by this time since its temple closes by 12:30 PM. We observed that there was almost no queue at 4 PM when people again leave for 1) Bet Dwarka as its temple reopens by 4:30 PM or 2) for evening aarti at Dwarkadhish temple or 3) for sunset view by the beach.2. Similarly, Dwarkadhish temple had no queue at 8:30 AM when morning aarti just finishes and people start leaving for Bet Dwarka.3. Plan for Bet Dwarka at early morning when most people will visit Dwarkadhish temple first for morning aarti. Also, many overnight trains arrive at Dwarka by early morning and devotees come directly to temple as there is locker/luggage storage facility available at the temple premises.Post our temple hopping throughout the day we went for some sightseeing at 6 PM. Our driver took us to Bhakti garden for sunset views. It is located close to Bhadkeshwar Mahadev temple. Sitting on the edge of a cliff with my husband, overlooking ocean waves crashing on rocky foothill of cliff and watching red colored sun going inside sea horizon infront – was truly a unique experience!! Location of Badhkeshwar temple is also quite interesting. It is present on pile of rocks inside sea and a narrow footpath connects the cliff to this temple. It offers 360* view of sea around. Well, we didn’t go inside since this one was also crowded with devotees!
Day 4:We left for our next destination Dwarka next morning at 9 AM after having breakfast at nearby Honest restaurant and it was pretty bad!On the way, our driver took us to Adari beach. It is present just a few kilometers off the highway at the end of a village. It doesn’t have a sandy beach but a swampy one with green algae. Can be skipped!
While JANUARY and FEBRUARY went in recovery in Nagpur, by MARCH I was up and running and was ready to meet my friends who had to cancel off our plans to Gangtok due to my accident. I started my year’s escapade with Mahabalipuram on 4th March, through Chennai. Immediately the next week, I went on to cover my third Dham, Dwaraka. I followed it with Somnath, Nageshwar and Porbandar, before returning through Rajkot & Ahmedabad. The next day, I hit it off to Diu to embrace my lust for adventure. 'I touched both Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal, within a week.' I did parasailing, scuba diving, water skiing, jet skiing and some other water sports. The next week, I went off again, this time for Jyotirlinga darshan in Srisailam via Hyderabad.
My grandmother was not getting any younger, she was now in the wrong side of her 70s and however fit she may have been age was now taking its toll.The last dham was left for her and for me, Dwarka the western Dham.Dwarka is located in the state of Gujarat, India. The legendary city of Dwarka was the dwelling place of Lord Krishna.The temple has wonderful architecture and is well planned to accumulate the huge crowds that dhams have.
Day 5 - Dwaraka: We booked an overnight non A/C sleeper bus from Bhuj to Dwaraka which is at a distance of 400 kms. One can rent a room for 500 INR for the day. Dwarakadeesh temple, Dwaraka beach, Gomti ghat and Rukmini temple are some of the places to visit. Beyt Dwaraka is located around 30 km from the main town and is a small island. The island is enclosed by a few temples, white sand beach and coral reefs, marine life, sea excursions, camping and picnics. One has to board a ferry for 20 INR from Okha to reach the island.
The most renowned place to worship the most renowned Indian God - Lord Krishna. Dwarka is a municipality located at the very end of Gujarat by the banks of the hallowed river of Gomti. The place is believed to be located at the very same location as the mythical Dwarka Kingdom, which was ruled by Krishna himself. Millions of pilgrims, or rather lovers of various other forms of the popular god, visit the holy grounds every year, with the number going exponentially higher during the festival of Janmashtami. Although the town is home to many significant temples, but the Dwarkdhish Temple is the main attraction, which is the residence of a huge decked up statue of Krishna. The main shrine of this 2,500-year-old structure is 5-storey-high and is supported by an astounding 72 pillars. Disciples also visit the Rukmini Devi Temple nearby to complete their pilgrimage.Things to do for millennials: Since the town is located at the mouth of Gulf of Kutch, there exist a few beaches around including the Beyt Dwarka Beach in Jamnagar. Birdwatching is a pastime at this place. But the main attraction for millennials is definitely the Rann of Kutch, which is ideal for biking expeditions. The great white land makes for an incredible platform as well as backdrop for bike riders, consequentially entering the must-do lists of most of them.Read more on Dwarka. Book hotels instantly without paying in advance if you're planning a visit.Well, doing the Char Dhams doesn't look so boring anymore, eh? So the next time your grandmother asks you about your lack of praying time in the mornings, offer to accompany her to the ultimate religious destinations. It'll make both of you happy. Now go, find your own gods. And once you're back, share your interesting stories on Tripoto with millions of other agnostic travellers like you are. Cheers! Oops, Jai Mata Di!
DwarkaThe fourth morning we left for Dwarka Dham, covering the distance of 250 kms in 5 hours. When we reached Dwarka we followed the same routine as Somnath. We took a shower, had a cup of tea and left for the temple. The temple was located at a kilometre and a half distance from our hotel and the walk to the temple was a beautiful one. Sea on one side and bustling markets on the other side greeted us all the way to the temple. The temple is huge, built in a similar way to the Somnath temple, with a huge compound surrounding it. The temple is a Krishna temple and is named as “Dwarkadheesh Temple”, translated to “The Temple Of The King Of Dwarka”. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Krishna was born in Mathura, spent his childhood in Vrindavan, his teenage years in Mathura and his entire adult life in Dwarka. Dwarka was the place where he established his rule and worked endlessly to bring balance to the Earth. Devotees call the Krishna residing in this temple as the “King of Kings”. The statue is beautifully adorned and attracts devotees and non devotees alike. We worshipped the Lord and left soon after.

Day 1 Gandhinagar to Udaipur 240On the 11th of April I left early in the morning. I left at 5 AM cause I did not wanted to be roasted by sun in the process. I estimated to reach the lake city 10 AM. I also planned to some of the major tourist spots the same day as well.The ride to Udaipur went without a glitch, as I reached Udaipur I had booked Zostle in Chandpole for my stay. As I got to Zostle, I was warmly greeted by the Manager there and he handed me a city map and the major tourist attractions of the city.
Day 1 started at 03:30 am with my phone vibrating and alarm blaring at full volume from under my pillow. After a cup of coffee and a quick shower, we set out for Mount Abu taking the Kalol-Mehsana Highway at 4:30am. Maintaining average speed of 100-110 km/h and without taking any stops we reached Abu at 7 am. Let me tell you, within the second of reaching there we were instantly recharged. The fresh air away from the pollution, the greenery that was a treat to the eyes and the foggy morning; perfect. So the first thing we did was to find our hotel (booked through OYO) and dropped our luggage there and took to the streets of Abu to find a decent place for a cuppa of tea and some breakfast.
Gandhinagar, the capital of Gujarat, was the first planned city in Gujarat. It is neatly divided into sectors making it easy to navigate. Planned tree plantations throughout the city give it a cooler feel than Ahmedabad. At 27km, it is one of the closest places near Ahmedabad.

The old city which is warm and inviting will leave you reeling in its glorious past. It is home to more than a hundred finely-carved Jain temples. The spirituality of the place will have a positive impact on you. Bask in its glory!Distance from Ahmedabad - 125 Km
2. Patan, Gujarat: A recent entrant into the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list, the intricately sculptured Rani ki Vav is a major attraction for History enthusiasts in Patan. The fortified town of Patan has lot more to offer apart from the step well, in the form of forts, Hindu and Jain temples, and the exquisite hand woven Patola sarees. Passed along generations as a tradition, there’s only one family that weaves these highly priced sarees in Sadvi Vada today, where one can watch the intricate weaving in person. This otherwise hot and dry region remains pleasant in October, and hence remains one of the best places to visit in October in India.
