Artistic and ingenious beauty!

I and friend of mine, we planned to explore places around Ahmedabad and then it started with the visit of the majestic Sun Temple at Modehra. Modehra is around 100 Kms from Ahmedabad and the road connectivity is good. So we decided to add a flavour of long ride to this rendezvous with the art of masonry. It takes almost 1. 5 to 2 hours to reach. The moment we entered the premises we could feel the positivity and the bliss. The temple premises consists of Surya kund, Sabha Mandap and the main temple surrounded by the greenery. The kund and the temple boasts of ingenious design, artistic carvings and sculptures. It is said that the temple was built during Solanki rule 100s of years ago, it is now being maintained by ASI and no prayers are offered. One must read the history of this temple before reaching here or chitchat with the villagers residing in the nearby area so that it is easy to correlate the golden history with the present ruins. It is believed that the temple was so designed that the first rays of the sun fell on the image of the Sun God. The Sun God idol no more exists. The philosophy or the design concept of this heritage complex makes us feel proud about the ancient art, engineering and the history. We spent hours walking around the serene landscape, observing the beautiful carvings and sculptures, sitting under the trees away from daily mundane city routine life back in the glorious history. One can spend 2 to 3 hours. It is advisable to bring food and drinking water along as no good hotels or restaurants are in the vicinity and not to forget to carry away the garbage. The best time to visit is to start early in the morning and return by noon. A perfect place to be one with nature and the feel the bliss of being part of this majestic, unique ancient architecture. The history, nature lovers would love visiting this place. Bikers would most likely enjoy the ride to Madhora.
