This is a beautiful temple situated in Northern Gujarat. We were lucky to have had this place included in the itinerary during our trip from Ahmedabad to Udaipur.

Legend has it that Vishwakarma, the architect of the Gods, constructed this temple in one night, but as it was morning by the time he completed it, he could not take it with him and had to return leaving it here. I tend to agree - it IS such a beautiful temple with a unique structure and an amazing array of intricate sculpture all around its exterior. It is a pity that it was overcrowded on the day we visited. See it for yourself, you will also agree.







From the front and side views, let us move to the beautiful sculptures now:







And lastly, an extra-ordinarily beautiful sculpture of Ganesha, like of which I have never seen anywhere.
