“An island with Hundreds of Banyan trees in the middle of River Narmada !”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

River Narmada has amazing sites on its over 1000 kms journey.One such near its Delta,where it meets the Arabian Sea,near Bharuch / Vadodara in Gujarat is a place called Kabirvad.Vad means the Banyan Tree.It is said that the original tree grew up with the touch of Saint Kabir,& over the time period of few hundred years,nourished by the rich soil & water brought by River Narmada,spread throughout the island ,springing trees after tress from its branches !It is an amazing scene to be surrounded by so many Banyan tress .This is an excellent & well known site for the group picnic.To swing holding the branches of trees is real fun.One has to sit in the boat from Shuklatirth & after 15 minutes or so one reaches there.People in & around Vadodara,esp. school children & yound couple must visit this site at least once in lifetime.

“Best place for group picnic”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

I have been to this place numerous times. This place has historical importance. Moreover the place is very peaceful. Nature loving people will love it. Great place for school picnic. Very scenic and one of the best places to visit close to Baroda and Bharuch.

“I would visit this place any day!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Depending on what you are looking for, this is a place to unwind after a hectic week. Close to Vadodara, Kabirvad has one of the oldest Banyan tree in the world. The huge canopy of this tree offers a great place to relax and play with kids. The river water is usually clean, but would not recommend swimming in unknown waters. A must visit for anybody keen to explore Gujarat.
