Balasinor

Kheda , Gujarat

Balasinor in Kheda district of Gujarat is famous for something quite shockingly unlikely in todays day and age- dinosaurs. Yes it is a veritable treasure trove of dinosaur remains. Balasinore was the first place in India where the remains of fossilised dinosaur eggs and skeletons where first found. In fact in the following years so many of these were found by the residents of balasinore that it was believed that Gujarat was one of the most important dinosaur hatcheries in the prehistoric world. It is one of the most exciting finds ever. Balasinore has preserved these finds by building a most impressive dinosaur park which educates all the people of the long ago creatures. It is quite fantastic as to how these fossils have contributed in changing so much about a place. Originally this was a princely state and like all princely states the effects of palaces and rules have somehow been etched in the very soil of the region. Though this is a princely state with a twist as the royal family has seen some interesting histories. The Garden Palace Hotel is a heritage hotel here where the palace of the Babi family has been converted into a hotel. This is a very unique stay and you will find that you will enjoy it a lot. But if you feel like roughing it out stay in oneof the Camp dinosaur tents. After all the purpose of visiting balasinore is to feel the completely strange feeling of holding relics in your hand which were there when even man was not. Here is your true, complete and ultimate Jurrasic park experience right in the middle of Gujarat.
