Poicha, Gujarat

Poicha is a very small place approximately 170 kms away from Ahmedabad which I had the opportunity to visit very recently. And I am only thankful that I did visit this place. It is a small village actually, then why was I so happy? Because inside this small village there is a place built called ‘Nilkanth Dham’.

It is supposed to be a religious place, but believe me anyone would simply fall for the place, by its grand stature. The pictures that I present here are not half as beautiful as the place itself.
















Apart from the temple there is Sahjanand Universe, a place built for recreation, a water show, a small zoo, a garden and a park, a very small and yet organised science city, mirror palace, and a wide range of things to do.

In short, for me it was a day well spent.

    1. Well Google is my source for everything πŸ˜€
      Even I never heard abbout this place, but as soon as I heard it, I had to go, and the opportunity knocked too. It’s just a day trip, ever near the place, you should definitely go.

      2. So now nothing is stopping you except yourself.
        Start exploring and stop thinking. πŸ˜€
        And yeah, I love, love, love to travel to new places. But I don’t get to do it as much as I like, which is at least 2 trips a year πŸ˜€

      3. Yeah i will travel!! 😬
        2 trips in a year is still ok (though not great since you love to travel!)…i feel one should visit as many places as one can…while still young…no point in waiting and accumulating wealth and realising health is gone one day while wealth is amassed and then it’s pointless to go anywhere…as it wont be enjoyable…i regret wasting so many years of my life stagnating!! Now dont want to regret anymore! … though i prefer going with an enjoyable company !!

      4. Hah!
        If you wait for that company then you might not know when exactly you will be able to travel πŸ˜€
        But yeah, you know you need that kind of money to travel so often which I don’t have πŸ˜€

      5. Rightly said!!
        And well i know people who are really enthusiastic about travelling but not having much money …and still living their dreams by managing in what they got!! So money may or may not be a hindrance i guess…we may not get all the three things together- money, health and company. So try with whichever of the two is available!!
        When i had health and company i didnt have money…when i had money and company i didnt have health…and now when i have money and health i dont have company…so i feel if two of the three are present then should go ahead! Which is what im doing now!! 😊

      6. For me, it’s always four things. the fourth one being the permission from parents πŸ˜€
        I mean the don’t restrict much but being a girl in India, there is this thing always nagging at you.
        So for me I have only two things out of four everytime, but yeah I do manage.

      7. Oh yeah the permission!! But we can manage to ultimately get around it 😜
        I usually get denied anything at the start of taking permission…but gradually there is a change of heart seeing my imploring eyes!! πŸ˜ƒ
        But for you being a girl in india can understand …there is this uncomfortable feeling associated! 😣 but you have still done quite good!

Your perception holds importance for me.
