  • You will drive to Modhera and Patan and visit some spectacular sights (approx 250 km return trip).

  • You will begin with Modhera, a site famous for its Sun Temple. Constructed in 1026 c.e. by Bhimadeva of the Solanki Rajputa clan, it is an exemplary model of art and architecture from the 11th century — a style that will later influence the development of temple architecture in the neighboring region as well.

  • The Temple also has a rectangular step tank with about 108 shrines. In another part of the temple, you can see a panel of traditional erotic sculptures in a style that rivals that of Khajuraho and Konark. Unlike the Konark Sun Temple in Orissa, which rests on 12 wheels of a chariot, Modhera has been built on the petals of a lotus.

  • Next, you will visit Patan. The city was an ancient Hindu capital before being ransacked by Mahmud of Ghazni in 1024. Now a pale shadow of its former self, it still has over 100 Jain temples. Patan is an example of the Solanki-period architecture, which can be seen at the Ran-Ki-Vav step-well, the oldest and perhaps the grandest among more than 120 step-wells in Gujarat. No other step-well in India is so profusely adorned as the Ran-Ki-Vav. 

  • Patan is also known for its Patola silk weavers. These weavers belong to the Salvi community who practice an intricate weaving technique called double ikkat. You will visit a weaver and see this technique as well.
