Kayavarohan Gate

Kayavarohan – The ancient town of Gujarat

Kayavarohan (કાયાવરોહણ) is an ancient town near Vadodara and Ahmedabad. Around 2015, I lead towards the Poicha Mandir from Ahmedabad, I had reached there once by forgetting the road and stopped for a tea in Kayavarohan. I feel positive vibes in this town which amaze me and my guts feeling told me that this is not a simple town. There must be something must be special about this.

After coming back I have started reading about Kayavarohan and it made me wonder about the place and my curiosity increased.
