Gujarat unknown tourist places II - Hot water spring, bird sanctuary and many more


By Himanshu Acharya

Hello friends,

In my last post on the same topic, I had covered Sundhamata, zanzari, rupal, balaram, delwada, galteshwar. Link is as below;

http://hims30482.blogspot.com/2010/02/some-known-and-mosty-unknown-tourist.html

Now I am going to cover Tua & Timba, Mangadh, Untadia Mahadev, Nal Sarovar. 
 
Tua & Timba:  Here you will find  Hot water sulphuric springs, kund  believed to have a miraculous cure for arthritis and rheumatism and footprint of Bhim (one of the Pandavas). This place is on the Ahmedabad-Godhra highway, just before the godhra 15-20 km away. You have to take right turn when you see signboard of Timba village.  It is almost 80-90 km from Ahmedabad. You can easily bath here in hot water. Dense forest area is starting from here. 



Mangadh hills: One more place near to Godhra. This place is towards santrampur direction. It is on the border of Gujarat with Rajashthan. It is famous for its hills, palace and one unknown history. We all know Jaliyawala Hatyakand, but during British Rule bigger than Jalianwala tragedy happned here. There is one temple and smarak for shahids there. Annual adivasis (tribal) fair is organized there with folk dance and many more.  It’s a pious place of faith for tribals of Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhyapradesh for Guru Govindsinh. The entire area is gifted with beautiful hills surrounded by scattered forests. Backwaters of Kadana dam are very near to this area. Have a look at picture and video.

Untadia Mahadev:  This place is famous for Shiv temple called Untadia ( camel) mahadev. There is a Triveni-sangam of rivers at this place and good place to take bath in river. There is camel ride available there. There is one small temple exactly between the river. It is worth to watch it once. Surrounding are is very good.  If you are a old fort lover guy,  you will find many within 5-10 km area. One is Antasumba.
This place is on the way to dehgam to Kapadvanj. Dehgam is some 22 km from Ahmedabad and Untadia is another 20km from dehgam.

Nalsarovar : This one is my charm and I think many of us. It is about 50-60 Km from Ahmedabad towards Sanand. Take left turn from sanand and within 25-30Km, you will be there in the mini sea.  You can consider it big lake (only 182 sq km) , a bird sanctuary, outing place (horse ride, boat ride, rural food) etc. There are about 300 species of birds. From December to the end of March tourists flock to, this 182 sq km lake with 360 islands to see the pelicans, flemingos, various species of ducks, white cranes, herons, evomets, long-beaked curlews and other birds. At mornings and evenings, it is an added pleasure to watch the birds from boats. During full-moons and starry nights, the beauty of the lake robs the onlookers of their sleep.
You can search easily about this place and photos. 

Just go there and take a horse ride, take a 1 hour boat ride in 5-6 feet water and finally eat Rotla-bhadthu with red chutney and pure butter at hats accompanying with buffalos.
