Day 4 started on a positive note from Somnath and Bhole Baba Blessings.
1st halt at Sasangir, after that Devaliya Park. Met a group of tourists from Veena Travel. Bus safari at Park, spotted Lion Leapard and Deers.
Next was Junagadh, where I visited Uparkot Fort. Night stay at Anjar City near Bhuj.
Now time to allow the pictures to do rest of talking.
I am told that in 2010 census there were 410 Lions and now it has over 524 Lions. The census is done every 5 years.
This goes in my valuable collection.
The area is really huge and I was eager to see Lions without wasting time. One well wisher advised me to visit Devaliya Park. The area is small and chances of spotting Lions are good. After spending time here went there and was lucky to see them and click few pictures.
The fort is a symbol of pride for many reasons. From planning and civil engineering point of view this has most of the elements. It has resources like water tanks and food grain storage to last for twelve years. And then a well with stair case Navghan Kuva , A well with steps surrounding it which could hide a large army. This is believed to be built by Solanki of the Chalukya Dynasty in 11th and 12th Century. Phew… unbelievable yet true.
Very nice feeling when people meet and they want to know the purpose of my Bharat Darshan and yes they never forget to take photograph with me. Would be great if I can inspire even one citizen to take up such a journey for some other purpose. So much to see, learn, unlearn in India itself.
