“Must see”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

All the relevant details have been mentioned by the previous visitors except the fact that if you are using your own veh don't stop at the base u may think that is the place for parking. The veh can go up the point from where the cable car operates. Further there are two more mosques in the loc which are worth visiting.

“Excellent facilities and stunning view! Authentic experience of India for foreigners.”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

The Kalika Mata Temple is on a large hill/mountain in Gujarat. It is an important pilgrimage site for certain Hindus. In order to reach the site, you have two options: a 3 hour walk up hill using steps, or a cable car. The steps option is free while the cable car is approximately 100 rupees round trip. If you are just here for tourism (as opposed to a holy visit) you should definitely take the cable car. It is well maintained and managed and provided for a really nice view and experience. When you reach the end of the cable line, you will have to walk through a street with snacks, drinks and trinket shops. After that, there are approximately 100 steps to climb to reach the top of the temple. The steps can get crowded and once you get to the top, you will have to wait in a crowd to get inside the temple. Guards keep you moving very quickly through the temple so you won't get more than 30 seconds inside.

If you enjoy having unique experiences and seeing Hinduism as it is lived and practiced, then come here for a glimpse of authentic India. You won't see another tourist for miles!

“Mahakali Temple - Pavagarh.”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Very near to our hotel, there was a ropeway which takes you up on the top of the hill. While going up you have an excellent view. For going to the temple one has to walk and climb up a few stairs which is worth the visit.
