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.

This is a picture of Swaminarayan Temple, Gondal, Gujarat. I love Swaminarayan Temples for it’s sanctity, peace, and the calm which I feel nowhere else. Their structure, their ambiance gives me the kind of feeling which I have no place else. The only place where I can go and can avoid any form of niceties, greet someone with a polite ‘Jay Swaminarayan’ and be done with people and all kinds of formality.
