Modhera Temple, dedicated to the Sun God. The original structure built way back in 1026 AD, it the best place for people who love history, sculptures and architecture. The temple does not have an puja or any religious offerings as on date. The impact of invasions by Mahmud Ghazni and then by Allaudin Khilji damaged the structures substantially but the restoration work gives a clear idea about how beautifully the temple was designed and structured. The statues and erotic sculptures represent the non suppressed and non moralized Indian culture.
It is about a little over 100 kms from Ahmedabad, with good roads leading to the temple. Unfortunately the Gujarat Tourism is focusing on Amitabh Bachhan advertisements more and less on the ground work to promote tourism. No urinals or even decent rest houses nearby, though the gardens are well maintained.
A decent place to spend a couple of hours for history lovers
P.S: The inner domes of the the two structures will remind you of the magnificent architecture in the Delwada temples in Mount Abu
