Kevadia-Narmada Info

  • State: Gujarat
  • Famous for/as: Waterfront
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. Panchmilli Lake, Kalvani Lake and Vagdam Lake are the lakes situated in the vicinity of this town.

Vadodara Airport or Civil Airport Harni is the closest airport and connects Kevadia-Narmada to major Indian cities. However, the international airport situated nearest to this town is Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport.

Bharuch Railway Station is the nearest train junction and visitors from cities like Mumbai, Mysore, Nagpur, Ahmedabad, etc. need to get off here. Kevadia-Narmada is well connected to nearby cities like Gandhinagar, Rajkot, Jamnagar, Aurangabad and Junagadh via the local bus service.

The best time to visit Kevadia-Narmada is after monsoons and before winters, i.e. during the months of October and November.

"Place to enjoy natural beauty of water"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Though the water flow was huge, I enjoyed a lot at Kevadiya Colony, Narmada, and Gujarat. Itís a place where you can enjoy natural beauty of water. Narmada is lifeline of Gujarat. On this Narmada River a dam named Sardar Sarovar Dam is build. It has a magnificent beauty during monsoon. The water of Narmada flows (overflows) from the long bridges of dam. It is such a wonderfully sight.
