Here is how you will spend your time
Day 1: Arrival At Ahmedabad - Modhera - Patan And Transfer To Dasada
We drive to Bajana (Little Rann Of Kutch) enroute visiting Modhera and Patan. Modhera : The Sun temple of Modhera is one of the finest examples of Indian architecture of its period. 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 Mahumad of Ghazni. Patan: Patan was an ancient Hindu Capital before it was sacked by Mahmud of Ghazni in 1024. Now a pale shadow of its former self, it still has more than 100 Jain Temples and is famous for its beautifully designed Patola silk saris. Overnight stay at Dasada.
