    Sorry Guys i just saw the post. Great punto-ed that you are coming to gujarat. Yes there are very beautiful places in Gujarat. Infact Gujarat can boast of a variety of places to visit ranging from religious to adventurous to UNESCO world heritage sites. Though i have a dream of exploring each and every corner of Gujarat but I have not been able to explore enough due to various constraints.

    - - - Merged Post - - -

    Since you are entering from Rajasthan Side, you can right away start exploring the famous and not so famous places.
    1. Ambaji Temple (Nr. Mount Abu) - Beautiful and a huge temple of Goddess Amba. (darshan remains closed from 4:30-7:30 p.m.
    2. Taranga Hills and Dharoi Dam - An ancient Jain Temple and a sanctuary
    3. Rani Ki Vaav and Sahastraling Lake at Patan. Also you can visit Patola houses of Patan, where they make beautiful silk sarees- costing of an orginal piece starts from min. 2:00 lacs. UNESCO has just finished scanning of the Vav(stepwell)
    4. Modhera Sun temple- Beautiful Architecture and an equally beautiful water tank in front of the temple. Modhera Dance festival takes place in third week of January.

    Further More down the line towards Ahmedabad from Rajasthan you can visit
    1. Thol Bird Sanctuary and Nalsarovar Bird Sanctuary - A paradise for Bird watchers.
    2. Indroda Dinosour Fossil Park, Akshardham- ( A beautiful temple of Lord Swaminarayan- Famous for Khicdi and a water laser show in the evenings-closed on modays) and Science City with IMAX theatre and Adalaj Stepwell near Gandhinagar just before Ahmedabad.
    3. Then Ofcourse Ahmedabad. As Neel mentioned if possible do not miss the kite flying festival in Ahmedabad. Its huge and colorful. Then there are many places to see within Ahmedabad. Though my interest has always been of Architecture. Some famous spots can be IIM, Hutheesingh temple, Gandhi Ashram, Sanskar Kendra, Husain Doshi Gufa, Calico Dome there are many and ofcourse road side food stalls at Law Garden. Neel please add more......

    I will update you about more places in my subsequent posts. Huh Lot of places.....
