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.
Kaya(Body) + Avarohan(Descent) = Kayavarohan (Where the body of the Lord has descended). Here, the God Shiv entered into the body of the child as Lord Lakulish (in the 2nd century, around 1,900 years before). So its name became Kayavarohan.
