On your arrival in Ahmedabad, you will be received by our representative and transferred to Dwarka with a visit en route to Jamnagar Bala Hanuman Temple. The Bala Hanuman Temple is venerated by the devotees of Lord Ram. It is a world famous temple, known for the chants of “Jai Ram, Shri Ram” that reverberate through its halls. The chanting began in 1964 and has found a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. People chant the name of the Lord in shifts, 24 hours a day. Later you will proceed to Dwarka and visit the renowned Dwarkadhish Temple. Attend the evening Aarti Darshan at the temple and stay overnight in Dwarka.
Begin your day with Aarti at the Dwarkadhish Temple, have breakfast & then visit Bet Dwarka, Nageshwar Jyotirling & Rukmani Temple. Also known as Bet Shankhoddar, Bet Dwarka is said to be the place where Lord Krishna lived with his family when they ruled Dwarka. It is also the place where Vishnu slew the demon Shankhasura. The Krishna temple at the site is a must visit. Nageswar Mahadev is one of the 12 jyotirlingas representing Lord Shiva. The Rukmani Temple was built honour of Lord Krishna’s wife. Attend the evening Aarti at Dwarkadhish Temple and stay overnight in Dwarka.
In the morning proceed to Porbandar. You will visit the childhood homes of Mahatma Gandhi and Kasturba Gandhi as well as the Gandhi Museum. Later visit the Sudama Temple & then proceed to Somnath. After a Darshan at the temple, enjoy a light and sound show and return to your hotel.
After a visit to Bhalika Tirth & Triveni Ghat, you will drive to Diu. A beautiful blend of sun, sand and sea, Diu situated off the southern tip of the Saurashtra (Kathiawad) peninsula of Gujarat, a picture of calmness with superb beaches and a fascinating history. Diu was ruled by many well-known kings and dynasties during the prehistoric, ancient and medieval times. It was a Portuguese colony until 1961 and is now a Union Territory, separated from Goa in 1987. You will visit St.Paul’s Church that was constructed in 1601. The main facade of the church is perhaps the most elaborate of all Portuguese churches in India and is adorned with volutes and shell-like motifs and magnificent wood carving. You will then make your way to Diu Fort, an expansive and imposing structure, situated on the coast of the island. The fort commands a magnificent view of sea. It was constructed between 1535 and 1541 AD. The fort is skirted by the Sea on the three sides and is home to a giant lighthouse. Several canons still stare menacingly from ramparts of the fort. Explore the fort and its flood lit environs at sunset.
After breakfast you will return to Ahmedabad. En route you will visit Lothal. Literally “Mound of the Dead”, is the most extensively excavated site of Harappan culture in India, and therefore allows the most insight into the story of the Indus Valley Civilization, its exuberant flight, and it’s tragic decay. After your tour of Lothal, you will continue to Ahmedabad and stay overnight.
Enjoy a day of sightseeing with visits to the Akshardham Temple dedicated to Lord Swaminarayan, Sidi Sayed mosque, is one of the most famous mosques of Ahmadabad, the Swetambara Temple, the Hatheesing and Gandhi Ashram. The beautiful ashram complex of Ahmadabad, with shady trees populated by thousands of parakeets, sunbirds and squirrels offers a refuge from the loud streets of the city and is one of the foremost tourist attractions of Ahmadabad. Later drive to the Adalaj step well, an architectural wonder built by Queen Rudabai and one of the finest monuments of Gujarat. It is a seven-storied structure in the form of a well with chambers one behind the other. The ‘Vav’ or stepped wells of Gujarat were used as meeting and resting-places during summer since their cool interiors offered unbelievable respite from the scorching sun outside. Later transfer to railway station for onward journey.
