what ever i write.... will not be enough .. to believe you will have to visit this place. Go there when you have at least 2 to 3 hours of time.

It is an outsanding piece of engineering. In arid regions such as Gujarat, creating a natural cooling and water collection system is remarkable. Similar architecture exists in other places too.
