I lived in Ahmedabad for a long time and this is by no means my first visit to Modhera. I've been there several times over the years and I've really seen it shaped to the respect the ancient sun temple deserves. Over the years, the grounds have been landscaped and that's brought a variety of wildlife to the area...while we were there we saw deer and lots and lots of peacocks(it had just rained so the peacock population was really high). The structure itself is eroding as years go by, but its mostly well kept. There is also an ancient step well on the grounds, but be ware if you decide to walk down the steps- they're steep and the steps can be slippery. Part of the beauty of this trip is the drive there....lush farmland really adds another dimension to the trip. Also, explore the grounds while you're there...lots of beautiful flowering plants and trees- great spot for a picnic. The Sun Temple is also a venue to a dance festival in January- I've heard it is very good, although I haven
t had the chance to witness it first hand. Overall, its an architectural masterpiece tucked away from the hustle and bustle of daily life- good place for a little meditation.
