Gandhi Ashram: On a quiet peaceful stretch of the Sabarmati river, Mahatma 
Gandhi set up a simple retreat in 1915 A.D. This was his Satyagrah Ashram 
and for many years it was the nerve centre of India’s freedom movement. It 
was from here, in 1930 A.D, that Mahatma began his famous Dandi March to the 
sea to protest against the Salt Tax imposed by the British. Hridaya Kunj, 
the simple cottage where he lived, is now a national monument and preserved 
as it was during the Mahatma’s life-time.

Shreyas Folk Museum is an educational museum exhibiting folk arts and crafts 
of Gujarat. It is located 2.5km west of Sabarmati in the suburbs of 
Ahmedabad district. As the name suggests, the exhibits at the museum include

AHMEDABAD – ADALAJ STEPWELL – MODHERA – PATAN – DASADA / BAJANA

Today morning drive to Dasada / Bajana 97 km enroute visiting Adalaj 
Stepwell, Modhera Sun Temple & Patan. Adalaj Step-well : Situated 17 km 
north of Ahmedabad, this step well at the village of Adalaj is another fine 
example of magnificent architectural form. ‘Adalaj Vav’ is richly carved. 
Every pillar and wall surface is covered with leaves, flowers, birds, fishes 
and friezes of ornamental designs. Modhera: The Sun temple of Modhera is one 
of the finest examples of Indian architecture of its period. Built in 1026 
A.D. the temple is dedicated to the Sun-God, Surya and stands high on a 
plinth overlooking a deep stone-steeped tank. Every inch of the edifice, 
both inside and outside is magnificently carved with Gods and Goddesses, 
birds, beasts and flowers. Sun Temple of Modhera was built by King Bhimdev I 
(1026-27) and bears some resemblance to the later and far better known, Sun 
Temple of Konark in the state of Orissa, which it predates by some 200 
years. Like that temple, it was designed so that the dawn sun shone on the 
image of Surya, the sun God, at the time of the equinoxes. The main hall and 
shrine are reached through a pillared porch and the temple exterior is 
intricately and delicately carved. As with the temple of Somnath, this fine 
temple was ruined by Mahmud of Ghazni.

Patan: Home of the famous patola silk saris, Patan is a beautiful old town 
with Jain temples and carved wooden houses. Rani ki vav (step well) is an 
excellent example of subterranean architecture of Gujarat. The exclusively 
carved side walls, pillars, beams, series of steps & platforms lead to the 
elaborately carved water well. Every surface is adorned with finely 
chiselled sculptures of maidens & Hindu deities, religious motifs & 
geometrical patterns. Drive to Dasada/Bajana for an overnight stay in a 
hotel.

Vijay Vilas Palace, a royal abode set in the middle of well-laid gardens 
with water channels and marble fountains. The architect and craftsmen from 
Jaipur designed and constructed the palace in 1920 AD. The palace has all 
the elements of Rajput architecture and draws largely on the plan of palaces 
of Orchha and Datia. The central high dome on the pillars, the Bengal domes 
on sides, the windows with coloured glass, carved stone jails, domed 
bastions at the corners, extended porch and other exquisitely stone carved 
elements, make the palace worth visiting. It owns a private beach, 
maintained in an eco-friendly manner to preserve its pristine beauty. For 
these reasons, this palace has been used as the setting in many Hindi films 
and has now become a popular tourist destination. Mandvi has some very 
beautiful houses belonging to rich merchants. Their architectural style 
reflects the fusion of Indian & European styles of architecture. The 
Swaminarayan temple is also one such example with it’s brightly painted 
exterior and elaborate plaster decorations. Other interesting buildings are 
a girls’ high school (a former palace) built by Rao Lakhpat (1741-60 AD) and 
a light house. This old palace is a replica of the Aaina Mahal of Bhuj, with 
intricate stone carvings. There is a wind farm on a picturesque beach
