Heritage and Architecture tours from Mumbai

Ahmedabad is indeed A treat for the Heritage & Architecture buffs. It is a largest city in Gujarat & is very rich in term of Culture & heritage. There are various places which are rarely explored. Patan, Modhera & Adalaj are few of them. In this Tour, we will walk you through History and you will be mesmerised to find the fine examples of Architecture.

Adalaj is famous for its five stories deep Stepwell which is intricately carved & built in sandstone. Stepwells like Adalaj were once integral to semi-arid regions of Gujarat as they provided water for drinking, washing & bathing. These wells were also venues for colourful festivals & sacred rituals.

Rani Ki Vav is again an intricately carved stepwell in Patan which is 130 Kms from Ahmedabad. It is declared as UNESCO’S world heritage Site in 2014. It was constructed in Maru-Gurjara Architectural style during Chalukya dynasty. This magnificent East-facing stepwell measures approximately 64 m long, 20 m wide & 27 m deep.

Modhera Sun Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to solar deity Surya situated on the banks of Pushpavati River. After Konark, this is prominent sun temple in India. No worship is offered here and is a protected monument by ASI.
