Modhera

Mahesana , Gujarat

Gujarat is one of the places that have seen many rules but when one traverses the length and breath of the state you see the evidence of the Solanki rule very prominently in the nooks and corners. You keep coming across evidence of a different life and a grand past with the art and beauty that belongs to the bygone era , yet is still here to mesmerise us. Modhera firmly falls under the category of being one of the loveliest examples of this very Solanki rule. Set along the backdrop of River Pushpavati, surrounded by a terra-formed garden of flowering trees and songs of birds, rests the famed Sun temple of Modhera. And such a beautiful sight you have seen very rarely indeed. The remains of the Sun God temple of Modhera reminds you of the times when the reverence of the natural elements such as fire, water , air etc was at its peak. A walk around this serene temple is all you need to reconnect with the natural elements again as this place possesses an aura that you will be unable to escape from. The exclusively carved temple complex and the magnificently sculpted kund are jewels in the art of masonry of the Solanki period apparently which was also known as the Golden Age of Gujarat. This temple is a voyage into the Golden past which will make you want to go back and revisit a time that must have been glorious. Modhera is an ideal destination for being away from the hustle-bustle of city life for a day. The unruffled peaceful landscape and the majestically welcoming temple complex will ensure to take you away from the mundane routines of daily life to the glorious times back in the Golden Age.
