Marked to be the seventh largest city in the Indian state of Gujarat, Junagadh happens to be located on the foot of the Girnar hills in western India. It is blessed with many ancient monuments and eye catching attractions for tourists to admire. Being a famous pilgrimage center as well, Junagadh has seen the evolution of many eminent saints since yester years. Such is the aura and essence of this magnetic destination that people keep flocking to it in every season and occasion, all the year round and from all across the globe.

Places to visit

The literal meaning of Junagadh is ‘old fort’ and the city has quite a few of them worth seeing. In fact, the fort walls surrounding the city are a unique sight altogether.  One reminiscent of a memorable old fort is the Uparkot fort which houses the Jamia masjid, Buddhist caves and the Adi-Kadi Vav. All these are a marvel to watch. The fort expanses on a radius of half a kilometer and makes for a nice choice for a thrilling day spend. The climb on to the holy hill of Girnar is an adventurous excursion trip which can be covered in 5-6 hours by foot and is quite an excitement for sport lovers. The Sakkar Baug zoo and the Gir National park are also highly fun-filled and enjoyable places to visit and explore. Being the only place in the world where wild Asiatic lions are still found, you can experience the golden opportunity of a lifetime to view them here. Among religious sites, you can opt to see the Jatashankar Mahadev mandir, the Swami Narayan temple and the Vagheshwari temple. The Darbar Hall, now the Junagadh museum, the science museum and the wild museum are also some of the very popular tourist destinations in the city worth giving a try on your vacation trip to Junagadh.

How to reach

At a distance of about 37 km from Junagadh is a place called Keshod where the aerodrome for the city is located. Almost all major domestic flights take off from here for Mumbai. By rail, there are regular trains connecting Junagadh with the rest of Gujarat and other parts of India which make the place highly accessible and easy to reach. Junagadh also has a well-laid network of roads which have frequent bus services to different parts of the state of Gujarat. Both private and state owned buses ply on these routes on a regular basis. Being well-knit via all three modes of transportation, Junagadh becomes commutable for people of all classes and strata of society.
