Situated on the bank of the
Sabarmati, Mahudi is a centre of pilgrimage for the Jains and
Khadayata Banias. The Jain temple is dedicated to Vir Ghantakarna. Jain
Muni Buddhisagarji had observed a long period of penance here and had
inspired the construction of the new temple.
The Sun temple of Kotyark attracts the Khadayata community. The mother and child idol of this temple dates back to Gupta period.
Devotees offer 'Sukhadi' (assorted varieties of food) to the reigning deity. Tradition forbids the devotees from taking this 'Sukhadi' out of the temple complex.
WHERE TO STAY
Large and clean 'sarai' (hostel) offers comfortable stay to the pilgrims.
