A beautiful place to visit

My family and I went for short trip to balaram, vishveshwar, hathidhara which are situated between palanpur-deesa Gujarat. First we take a visit of balaram which is beautiful place with river and jungle area. Also there is ancient Shiv mandir which is very popular. Main attraction is balaram resort. Which is beautifully designed like huge palace. The fees is high but worth to visit. Amitabh bacchan's famous film suryavansham's shooting was also done here. Then 10-15 km far the place come vishvesjwar. We enjoyed lot there with beautiful river like a nice beach, camel riding, overall very good experience.

Palanpur Overview

Palanpur is an important city in the district of Banaskantha in the western state of Gujarat. It is the administrative headquarter and the largest city in the district. The town got its name from the Palansi Chauhans who came and occupied the city in the 14th century.

It was earlier known as Prahladanpur, believed to be named after the founder of the place – Prahladan belonged to the Paramara clan of the Rajputs. It was a princely state during the rule of the British in India.

Palanpur is a historical city and at one point in time the town was heavily protected by forts on all sides, with entry being possible through one of the seven gates to the city. These forts and gates are now ruins around the city and are an important tourist attraction.

The Keerti Stumbh, also called the Victory Tower is another important tourist site in Palanpur, apart from the Zorawar Palace and the Balaram Palace which stand as reminders of Palanpur’s princely history.

Surrounded by hills of the Aravalli Range, the town of Palanpur is quite scenic with views of the surrounding mountains and the landscape. The town is considered an important religious place for people of the Jain community and there are as many as 14 Jain temples in Palanpur. The most famous among them are the Motu Derasar and Nanu Derasar.

Road connectivity to the town is quite good and National Highway 14 passes through it, connecting it to places like Pali, Sirohi and Mount Abu. A couple of state highways also go through Palanpur connecting it to important cities and towns of the state. State Highway 41 connects Palanpur to the city of Ahmedabad.

The town is also quite well connected by railway and the Palanpur Junction Railway Station connects trains from different parts of the country. The Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport at Ahmedabad is the nearest airport to Palanpur, and it is at a distance of about 135 km. Travellers can take a bus or a taxi to travel from the airport to Palanpur town.

The best time to visit Palanpur is during the months of October to March. During this time, the weather becomes pleasant and the temperatures fall, making it comfortable to move around the city.
