Why travel Vadodara?

Vadodara, Gujarat's third largest city, is considered the state's cultural capital. Home to some of the most exemplary displays of architecture, Vadodara is a fitting memorial to Maratha leader Sayajirao Gaekwad III who had envisioned a dream to make this Big City an educational, industrial and commercial centre. Pavagadh Hill, graced with a combination of Hindu and Jain shrines, towers over Champaner, the 15th c. pre-Mughal Islamic fort. Together they represent the diversity of religious influences that have pervaded Gujarat.

Vadodara has some interesting city sights, but the main reason for coming here is the stunning Unesco World Heritage Site of Champaner & Pavagadh nearby.


With a prominent part of it being occupied by the Gujaratis, this place is the most sought after during the nine days of the Navratri festival. No city in India celebrates the festival of Navratri with as much zeal and exuberance as Vadodara does. It houses one of the premier universities of India- the Maharaja Sayajirao University, one of the most lavish palaces in India- the Lakshmi Vilas Palace and plenty more legendary monuments.
