Morning arrival at Ahmedabad airport / railway station, meets, greet and transfer to hotel, later city tour visits of Gandhi Ashram, Hathee Singh Jain Temple, Adalej Step Well, Akshardham temple.


Sabarmati Ashram - Gandhi Ashram - Harijan Ashram - Satyagraha

It’s located on the western bank of the Sabarmati River. Ashram was the residence of Mahatma Gandhi. From this Ashram Gandhi started the Dandi March in 1930. The ashram now has a museum, Gandhi SmarakSangrahalaya. The museum building was erected (designed by architect Charles Correa), and memorial activities were then started here. One of the important activities undertaken is the establishment of a Gandhi SmarakSangrahalaya. Initially started in 'HridayKunj,' Gandhi's own cottage in the Ashram, the Sangrahalaya has now shifted to its own well-designed and well-furnished building. Exhibits at the museum includes: Gandhi quotations, letters, and life size oil painting gallery.


Hathee Singh Jain Temple

It was built by Seth Hathee Singh in 1850. It is easily distinguished by its high carved column, visible from road. Built entirely of white marble embossed with smooth carvings of dancers, musicians, animals & flowers, this serene temple is dedicated to Dharmnath, whose statue stand in the main temple. It has a paved courtyard surrounded by an imposing row of cloisters containing 52 shrines, each with an image of a tirthankara, profusely decorated with rich carvings, one containing the marble image of the 15th tirthankara. The temple is a two-storied structure with elaborate porches on three sides and front porch crowned by a large dome.


Adalaj Step Well

The step well was built in 1499 A.D. by Queen Rudabaiwife of Veer Singh, the Vaghela family. The designs on its walls and pillars include leaves, flowers, birds, fish and other breathtaking ornamental designs. In the past, these step wells were frequented by tourists and caravans as stopovers along trade routes. The five-storied, step-well located in the sleepy village of Adalaj is a marvel of architecture. This unique water work is an excellent blend of Hindu and Islamic styles. The intricately carved monument served religious and utilitarian purposes of the people around though its origin is marred by tragedy.The Indo-Islamic style of architecture, which developed in India in the early centuries of the medieval period, is neither a local variant of Islamic art, nor a modification of Hindu art, but it is an assimilation of both the styles, though not always to an equal degree. The architecture of this well also shows the influence of the earlier Solanki rulers of Gujarat. Built entirely of sandstone, one can enter into this step-well from three sides, which consist of octagonal landings with huge carved colonnades and intricately carved niches. The step-well served both ritualistic as well as utilitarian needs.


Akshardham Temple (Monday Closed)

The Nityanand Hall visualizes values from the Upanishads, Ramayana. The Audio Animatronics Show features the lifelike assembly of statues that sing and speak. The Water Show reveals India’s ancient secret of inner light through an Upanishad story of Nachiketa, a nine year old boy, who bravely confronts Yamraaj, the God of Death, and receives from him the knowledge that has made India, a land of enlightenment.Performed by live actors, with a 70-feet high water screen, water features, fire spreading on water along with several fireballs, powerful lasers, all enhanced by a 10.2 surround sound system, it is a uniquely entertaining and educational show with a spiritual message.

There is a flag hoisted in the temple tower four times each day, which waves in the air beautifully welcoming the pilgrims. The structure of the temple is quite complicated. There are two gateways: SwargaDwar, where pilgrims enter, and Moksha Dwar, where pilgrims exit.


Nageshwar Jyotirling

It is located on the route between Dwarka and the Bet Dwarka Island, on the coast of Saurashtra in Gujarat. This temple enshrines one of the 12 Jyotirling in INDIA. This powerful Jyotirling symbolizes protection from all poisons. It is said that those who pray to the Nageshwar Ling become free of poison. According to Shiv Puran, a Shiva devotee by name Supriya was attacked by a demon Daruka while in a boat. The demon imprisoned him along with several others at his capital Daruka forest (Jungle) where he resided with his wife Daruki. Supriya advised all prisoners to recite the mantra ‘Om NamahShivaya’. When Daruka came to know about this he ran to kill Supriya. Instantly Lord Shiva appeared in the form of a Jyotirling. One of the Nageshwar’s attractions is the 26 m statue of a sitting Shiva outside.


Gopi Talav

Gopi Talav is 21 KMS far from Dwarka. It is a small pond. Gopis (Young Girls) used to take bath in this lake so it is called Gopi Talav. In Mathura, Krishna often danced Rass with Gopis. After he left for Dwarka, they missed him so much that they decided to visit him. They all reunited at a lake north of Dwarka and dance once more under the full moon. At the end of the dance, unable to part with Krishna, the Gopis decide to merge into the earth. A legend says that they transformed into yellow soil called Gopi CHANDAN. Even today the soil of the Gopi Talav is extremely smooth and yellow in color.The main attraction of Gopi Lake is Mahaprabhu Ji Bethak.


Rukhmani Temple

Rukhmani Temple is located 2 KMS away from Dwarka There is a myth associated with it once Krishna and Rukhmani went to 'Durvasha Rushi' to invite him at Dwarka.

While driving the cart, Rukhmani became thirsty. Then Krishna stopped the cart and made water from Holy River Ganga by pressing leg thumb at land.

The ashram now has a museum, Gandhi SmarakSangrahalaya. The museum building was erected (designed by architect Charles Correa), and memorial activities were then started here. One of the important activities undertaken is the establishment of a Gandhi SmarakSangrahalaya. Initially started in 'HridayKunj,' Gandhi's own cottage in the Ashram, the Sangrahalaya has now shifted to its own well-designed and well-furnished building.

The step well was built in 1499 A.D. by Queen Rudabaiwife of Veer Singh, the Vaghela family.

In the past, these step wells were frequented by tourists and caravans as stopovers along trade routes. The five-storied, step-well located in the sleepy village of Adalaj is a marvel of architecture. This unique water work is an excellent blend of Hindu and Islamic styles. The intricately carved monument served religious and utilitarian purposes of the people around though its origin is marred by tragedy.The Indo-Islamic style of architecture, which developed in India in the early centuries of the medieval period, is neither a local variant of Islamic art, nor a modification of Hindu art, but it is an assimilation of both the styles, though not always to an equal degree. The architecture of this well also shows the influence of the earlier Solanki rulers of Gujarat. Built entirely of sandstone, one can enter into this step-well from three sides, which consist of octagonal landings with huge carved colonnades and intricately carved niches. The step-well served both ritualistic as well as utilitarian needs.

The demon imprisoned him along with several others at his capital Daruka forest (Jungle) where he resided with his wife Daruki. Supriya advised all prisoners to recite the mantra ‘Om NamahShivaya’.
