Best wekkend Gateway.

Narmada dam is best place to visit. A day visit is very Exiting. When the dam is overflow it looks very nice. There few waterfalls near main dam, can visit them too. During rainy season its best time to visit. There is ome tunnel also but you need to get permission before if you want to visit tunnel.

Nature at its best

Visited on 25th Aug 2016.

Nature is at its best.

If you are coming from a long distance like Mumbai, previous night stay at Poicha-Swaminarayan mandir (one has to book the room three days in advance) or at Rajpipla.

Next morning reach Kavadia, have the whole day for visit to all the places.

Leave Kavadia before evening as hotel and food at Kavadia is not good.

Kevadia-Narmada Overview

Kevadia-Narmada is a town situated in Narmada District, in the state of Gujarat. This town is surrounded by thick forests and hills on all sides; several small streams, rivulets, view points and watering holes are also located here. The town is located downstream from the Narmada Dam.

Since colonisation, this town has been ruled by many kings, such as King Vikram, King Nandrai, King Jachand and his nephew Samarsignhji. It was invaded twice by Sultan Ahmed, who was killed by King Harsinghji during the second attempt.

This town reflects Gujarati tradition to its core, with dhotis and sarees being the main attire of locals. Navratri is celebrated on a large scale and people take part in the Garba and Dandia enthusiastically. Traditional Gujarati cuisine, which includes items like dhokla, khichdi, khandvi and khaman, is also available here.

The Government is heavily promoting tourism in Kevadia-Narmada due to its scenic location and wild life and plant species. The area also serves as a spot for leisure and recreational activities such as mountaineering, surfing and boating. Hotels, water parks and golf courses are being developed in this area to meet the demands of tourists.

Some notable tourist spots located in Kevadia-Narmada are Nehru Foundation Stone Sthal, Narmada Dam River View Point and Aditheswar Mahadev Temple, which is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Mahadev Temple, another Shiva temple located here, was submerged in water and has been reconstructed now.
