Me and my friends goes to Modhera sun temple two months ago. It's best place and also heritage place. The sun temple made by bhimdev in thousand years ago. When sun rise it's first ray plot on the temple. Small step wall also here and this is the best place in Gujarat. Finally me and my rest on garden of sun temple. I think good place for people who love heritage place.
