    It's been months since I've visited this place, but the grandeur of the Darbar hall is something I'm not still over!
    I had opted for the MP3 audio guide (the earphones need to be improved) so it was quite easy to navigate. The palace is quite beautiful and a lovely place to explore. I was excited to see the vav (the step-well) but they have taken it off the list, and we can't visit those parts of the ground anymore.
    I had a cup of coffee and spent some time journaling at the tiny cafe inside the palace grounds.
    I spent 3 hours on the palace grounds before heading to the Fatehsingh museum.

    Its a huge huge huge garden right in the city.
    Nicely developed with lots of features to explore.
    The best part is the Museum & the Zoo and Bird Airiay - which is very unique in India.
    There is a train ride, cycling, walking tours of the Garden.
    The Museum is very large & has huge collection of varied things on display. They have done nice categories & sections. The best items on display are - almost 3000+ yrs Egyptian Mummy, a 72 ft skeleton of a Blue Whale and so many.
    Birds Airiay is a good experience.
    Zoo is neat & well maintained.
    Overall its a fun & good experience.
    Very apt for a 1 day picnic and a place to spend time with family during sunny winter days.

    Kuber Bhandari Mandir Karnali, Gujarat.
    It is a Lord Shiva temple and a very popular religious destination for locals and neighbourhood areas. We were told that on Amavasya there is a congregation of thousands of devotees.
    As per the legend, at one time Lord Shiva and Parvati were passing through this area. Parvati got tired and felt thirsty and hungry. Lord Shiva could not find anything to eat. He decided to stay at this place so that in the future his presence could provide food and drink for all. The place became famous as Kuber Bhandari or simply as Kuber Temple.
    Quite a few websites mention that this is the only Kuber, the God of wealth, but I did not see any Kuber idol in the temple.

    Nicely maintained and comparatively small but beautiful temple. The artistic and amazingly beautiful Multi-coloured geometrically cut glass and mirror pieces, interspersed with female statues make a very beautiful temple dome of the temple which is really a sight to behold. A beautiful collection of headgear (pagdis) is also on display in the temple.
    The view of the Narmada River and its banks is good and scenic. A nice staired wide ghat descends down to river Narmada.
    After about an hour we started back for Vadodara.
    4 Photos were taken at Kuber Bhandari Temple. All are given here. For zoomable and captioned photos taken there go to the album already opened in a different tab/window.

    If you are someone who enjoys visiting museums, this is THE place for you. I am truly happy that I went here alone and could spend time indulging in the fabrics, artworks, and sculptures.
    If you go here, don't rush through the rooms. They are created and curated in a manner that is to be experienced.
    The park around the museum is quite nice too!

    A seasonal waterfall, that is. utterly surrounded by nature. After the rainy season, easy access and short distance travel are required for a quick outing with family and friends. One should pack food and water, and adults should watch over youngsters as accidents might happen if adequate precautions are not taken. It is a location close to Zand Hanuman near Jambudhoda.
