Good place for milk lover.

You will not Rome around the city between 9AM to 6PM due to over heat and high temperature. I would recommend to visit Kaira District Co-operative Milk Producers' Union and Sardar Patel memorial park. I must advise to try all Amul product food. Here. I enjoyed a lot.

A Trip to Anand

I had been to Anand by road in the month of October 2016. Anand is a must-visit attraction in the tourism circuit of Gujarat. The must-visit attractions around Anand include the Sardar Patel Memorial and the Galteshwar Temple. The Sardar Patel Memorial was founded on 7th March, 1980. It is located inside the Moti Shah Mahal in the Shahibaug area of Gujarat. The Galteshwar Temple is located 16 kilometers from an area called as Dakor in Anand, Gujarat. This is the exact place where rivers Mahi and Galati merge. This Temple has a unique 8-sided wall. The River Galati springs water on the sacred Shivalinga.

Anand Overview

Anand is situated in the Gulf of Khambhat and is popularly known as the milk capital of India because of the mass production of dairy products here. It is also the administrative centre of Gujarat, which is looked after by Anand Municipality.

Anand means ‘happiness’ and it is located between Vadodara and Ahmedabad, about 101 km from Gandhinagar, the state capital. In addition, a National express highway passes through Anand, which is from Ahmedabad to Vadodara. Anand is the part of Charotar region that comprises both Anand and Kheda districts.

The city is home to well-known names like National Dairy Development Board of India and Anand Agricultural University. The National Dairy Development Board in Anand is an institution that strives to cater to the dairy needs of the state and the neighbouring regions.

Anand also has Asia’s largest dairy cooperative in the form of Amul dairy. It was established in 1940 A.D and is located in the Kheda district. The commodities produced here include dairy products like butter, cheese and chocolates.

Anand is also known by the name of Charotar and some of the villages like Borsad, Petalad and Anand talukas are situated in this region and sometimes referred to as the Golden Leaf due to the mass production of Tobacco. The entire region of Charutar is very fertile and productive and because of that it is also known as the ‘pot full of gold coins’.

Anand consists of several places related to education and massive agro based industries making it a destination with both rural and urban touch. The Vallabh Vidhyanagar, which is the major educational suburb of Gujarat, is located in Anand. Due to these reasons, Anand is one of the major agriculture and industrial centres of India.

Navratri is the most popular festival in Anand and is celebrated with cultural dances like Garba and Dandia. The temple of Dakor, which is at a distance of 94 km from Vadodara and Ahmedabad, is a popular tourist destination in Anand. It is the temple of lord Krishna.

The fort of Bharuch is situated 70 km from the city of Vadodara. The original name of this fort was Bhrigukachba, which was later shortened to Bharuch. The Jama Masjid, which is located at Champaner, is another major tourist attraction.
