Modhera (102km)

Modhera (102km)
Modhera - Places Around AhmedabadFrom Adalaj, one needs to travel by the state highway to Mahesana city, via Kalol, where one heads left for Modhera -the Sun Temple stands here, built in 1025 A.D. It is known for its ingenuity in design and implementation. Simply overwhelming is the bottomless, symmetrical stepped tank- the Surya Kund. Curiously enoough, the entire temple and the mandap appear to be defended on the spine of innumerable extravagantly sculpted elephants, ranged along the base. Entry fee for Indians is Rs 5, and foreigners Rs 100. Timings are from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. It is open on all days. Still camera charges are incorporated within the fee. Video recording however needs to done with prior permission.
