Divine Shakti Trails Day 1

Day 1

Arrive Ahmedabad, check inn at hotel & later we go for a sightseeing tour of Ahmedabad visiting Gandhi Ashram, Hutheesingh Jain temple, Adalaj stepwell & Vaishnodevi temple.

Gandhi Ashram: On a quite peaceful stretch of the Sabarmati River, Mahatma Gandhi set up a simple retreat in 1915. This was his Satyagrah Ashram and for many years it was the nerve centre of India’s freedom movement. It was from here, in 1930, that Mahatma began his famous Dandi March to the sea to protest the Salt Tax imposed by the British. Hridaya Kunj, the simple cottage where he lived, is now a national monument and preserved as it was during the Mahatma’s life-time.

Hutheesingh Jain Temple: Built outside the Delhi Gate in 1850 by a rich Jain merchant, the Hutheesingh Temple is the best known of Ahmedabad’s many ornate Jain temples.

Adalaj Step-well: It is situated 17kms north of Ahmedabad. The step well at the village of Adalaj is another fine example of this magnificent architectural form. Adalaj Vav is richly carved, every pillar and wall surface covered with leaves and flowers, birds and fishes and friezes of ornamental designs.

Vaishno Devi Temple: A popular temple of goddess Vaishno Devi located on S.G. Road (Sarkhej-Gandhinagar highway). It is modelled based on Vaishno Devi temple situated in Jammu & Kashmir. It can be seen crowded every day, and on weekends devotees from all over the India visits this temple.

Located on Sarkhej-Gandhinagar highway Vaishno Devi temple boasts of huge crowd round the year that includes devotees and tourists as well. Principle deity being Vaishno Devi the temple is a true replica of the famous temple in Jammu & Kashmir for what devotees of Goddess Vaishno Devi flocks here round the year. The only difference between the two is that one at Ahmedabad can be visited with in a couple of hours.

The Vaishno Devi temple of Ahmedabad also remains flooded with followers during Navaratri and is decorated beautifully when the devotee offers coconut, clothes, fruits, rice etc. The temple draws huge crowds of devotees from all over India.

The temple has become the place of the pilgrimage for almost all Hindus in India. This temple is among the three main Shaktipeeths in Gujarat.
