When we consider Gujarat, there may be many places to visit. But these are the places which are worth visiting. These places are on the top, if we look for the best places in Gujarat. Modhera and Patan are two places in Gujarat, which are very beautiful. They are lively examples for the beauty of Indian Architecture. Ancient temples in India are a very good examples of Indian Architecture. Here also, we can find beautiful temples and other ancient buildings which are proud for the Indian Architecture.

Modhera



Don't miss to visit Modhera, when you are in Gujarat. This small town is situated about 120 kms away from Ahmedabad. The town has an excellent and huge Sun temple, which resembles the famous Konark Sun Temple.

King Bhimadeva I , who ruled the Saurashtra region in the 11th century AD, is said to have built the beautifully carved Sun Temple at Modhera, between 1026 AD and 1027 AD.

The temple is divided into three main sections - the main temple, a huge pond comprising a lot of idols, and a hall in between. The temple's architecture is so good, that we don't get proper words to express its beauty.

Patan



After Modhera, Patan is another beautiful place in Gujarat. Rani ki vav (step well) is an excellent example for Solanki architecture. The statues in the well and the entire style of architecture is so lively.

It was built during the last decade of the 11th century by Rani Udaymati in memory of her husband, Bhimdeva I of the Chalukya Dynasty. The Vav is decorated with around 800 stone sculptures and reliefs. No other step-well in India is as profusely adorned as this.

Pata is situated around 130kms from Ahmedabad. The city is also famous for 100 Jain temples and Patola silk sarees.
