Places of tourist attraction near Junagadh:
Girnar: It is located 5 km from Junagadh. Girnar has been a sacred place well before the Dholavira and Mohan-jo-daro period and its origin can be traced back to the Vedas and other holy scriptures of various Indus Valley based religions. Older than Himalayas, Girnar, the mountain and its range are considered sacred and it’s an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Jains, who gather here during the Girnar Parikrama festival.
Bhavnath Shiva temple: The Shiva linga here is said to have emerged of its own divine intention. Reportedly, when Shiva and Parvati were traveling over the Girnar Hills their divine garment fell over the present Mrigi Kund, making this place an auspicious site for Shiva worshippers. Even today, the naga bavas are known to bathe in the holy Mrigi Kund before joining the Mahashivaratri procession. Legend has it that three sadhus out of many who take a dip at the Mrigi Kund vanish into the waters. Unfazed by the changing times, however, the Naga sadhus believe in the spiritual powers of the kund. According to a legend Lord Shiva himself had taken bath here and the water, which has sulphur, is a sign of his divine presence. Legend also has it that there is a secret tunnel under water from where they go to another place.
Damodar Kund: It is considered holy, as per Hindu mythology and many Hindus prefer to bathe and immerse the ashes and the bones left after cremation of dead bodies here.
King Ashoka’s Rock Edicts: They are all inscribed on a rock located outside the town of Junagadh. The inscription is inscribed high up on a large, domed mass of black granite on Girnar, a collection of hills near the town.
Darbar Hall museum: The Durbar Hall Museum, Junagadh actually has been a courthouse in the times of the Nawabs where all court cases used to be put up to be fought for or against. Part of the old city palace, the court was later converted into a museum, preserving the tokens and mementos which speaks of the grandeur and glory of the past ages of Nawabs and Sultans.
Uperkot Fort: An impressive fort, Uperkot, located on a plateau in the middle of town, was originally built during the Mauryan dynasty by Chandragupta in 319 BC. The fort remained in use till the 6th century, and then it was covered over for 300 years. Then it was rediscovered in 976 AD. The fort was inundated 16 times over an 800 year period. Besides there are well known places like Adi kadi Vav (A stepped well) and Navghan Kuva (A well with steps surrounding it which could hide a large army) which are believed to have been built during the rule of the Solanki of the Chalukya Dynasty in 11th and 12th Century. Dhakka Bari (The window to punish the offenders by throwing them off in the valley) is now closed for public access and can be seen only from the outside of fort. There are also Rock Caves believed to be Buddhist Caves having stone carvings and floral work carved as early as 500 BC. There are also the Khapra Kodia Caves north of the fort, and the Babupyana Caves south of the fort. The fort is worth visiting for the seekers of historical places and forts.
Sakkarbaug Zoo: Also known as Junagadh Zoo, it is a 200-hectare (490-acre) zoo that opened in 1863 at Junagadh, Gujarat, India. The zoo provides purebred Asiatic lions for the Indian and the international endangered species captive breeding program for the critically endangered species.
