Some journeys are as beautiful as the destination themselves, and this one was exactly that. Our drive to Dholavira was full of fun and amazement. The place seemed to be a little out of the way and not a commercial tourist attraction for sure but the roads en route, the sight of vast spread salt desert, the beauty of the little villages made it all so very beautiful. I generally doze off if the drive is any longer than an hour. But this time I was glued to my window all the way.
The place is a goldmine for historians I would say. It’s the fifth largest Harappan sites in Indian sub-continent, second largest in India and another must visit on my Kutch List. Dholavira also consists of one of the world’s earliest water conservation systems. You can see the relics of the Indus valley civilization at The Archaeological Museum next to the site. All that you would have read in history books as a child and heard of is right in front of you, don’t complain if you get goosebumps!
This was the last hit on our trip and well what a closure. There is so much in Gujarat for everyone, whether you are a travel enthusiast or a history buff, photo fanatic or an experience seeker you are bound to be amazed by this place. And December and January I would say are the perfect time to explore this area. So go ahead and plan your trips out and have loads of fun.
See you soon!
