Gujarat Darshan - Kera (Kutch)

Kera is located at a distance of about 25 km from Bhuj in Kutch and takes about 45 minutes to reach by car.

It was summers when I visited the village for a project with my team member Muzayun and our tour guide, the local health officer. It was only towards the evening that we got free and got to explore the town, and we surprisingly found it to be beautiful and full of archeological remains.

The most prominent of these is the Dargah and the grave-yard close by. There is also a very old Shiva temple, which we just saw from the jeep, but sadly didn't have time to stop by and explore.

The grave-yard is absolutely stunning and was completely unexpected for me. Its vast and full of closely spaced graves, and all in carved stones. I couldn't get down to explore the place more as it was already dark and we had to return back to Bhuj, but would love to go back to see more of the place someday.
