Dholavira Tourism At A Glance

Gujarat will have the chance to shine once more on the World Heritage Map thanks to UNESCO’s inclusion of Dholavira of Kutch in the list of World Heritage Sites in 2021. Gujarat now boasts the distinction of having four World Heritage Sites, thanks to the addition of Dholavira to the list. One of the two biggest Harappan sites in India, Dholavira is the fifth largest on the subcontinent. Similar to Lothal, it experienced every phase of the Harappan civilization between roughly 2900 and 1500 BC, but the majority of people only witnessed the early or late phases.

The fifth or seventh stage of civilization’s fall was discovered during the excavation, and after that, there were indications of the site’s temporary abandonment. Later in the late Harappan stage, settlers returned, bringing with them altered pottery from civilizations discovered at sites in Sindh, South Rajasthan, and other parts of Gujurat, but they did not bring the civilization with them. For instance, their homes were constructed in a completely novel circular shape known as “bhungas,” and their material signs were remarkably uncluttered and straightforward. It’s possible that the mighty civilization had reached the end of its evolution and was getting ready to collapse gradually.

kabrau-moghal-dham

Kabrau Mogal Dham

Mogal Dham Kabrau is located at a distance of 16 km from Bhachau. Removes age-old disease. Where donations are not accepted – Dakshina. Moghal, who is sitting in Kabarau of Kutch, is hungry for the value of devotees, not money. It also called Manidhar Vadwali Mughal. In the past, there have been bullocks and buffaloes alongside bullocks whenever there is water. One day, as he was bringing the bullocks in a pan, he told Mataji, “Where we light a lamp, the true sign comes from Mataji,” and we used to light the lamp there. However, this is not a lamp; rather, it is our price.” For this reason, we offer our sincere and loving prayers to Mataji, the genuine Nagara. Meanwhile, the cloud is teasing us by sitting in the direction of the setting sun, and Mataji grants our wishes.

vrajvani-dham

Vrajvani Dham

According to legend, an Ahir man played the dhol during a Janmansthanmi festival some hundred years ago, and 140 Ahir women began to dance to the beat. Neither the dancers nor the dholi gave up during this endless performance. It appeared as though they were reenacting Krishna and Gopis’ Raasleela. The women reportedly danced to the beats for several days or maybe a week. The spouses who came over to persuade them to stop and go back home infuriated the males of the Ahir village. After a few fruitless efforts, one of the men’s frustration escalated to anger and he decapitated the dholi. The story itself is quite dramatic, but what comes next will truly astound you. After their musician passed away, the 140 women burned themselves alive on his funeral pyre. Since he wasn’t their spouse, this wasn’t quite sati, but the temple nevertheless views them as satis. There are 140 large and tiny stone slabs within the temple compound that indicate the locations. At the sanctum of the temple are 140 life-size statues of Ahir women bending down to worship Lord Krishna. Vrajvani is Lord Krishna’s temple that is historical place of Vaghad.
