Sasan Gir is nestled amidst a number of religious spots and temples, making it a perfect pit stop for yatra-goers ! There are several options for day-excursions too.

Somnath Temple  (45 KM)

This temple, said to have been built by the Moon God, was once renowned for its wealth and ransacked several times by foreign invaders. 

Girnar (70KM)

A famous pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Jains, now accessible through India's longest ropeway. Not to be missed!

Banej (28 KM)

It is said that Arjun had pierced the heart of the earth to quench the thirst of Kunti, here.

Kankai  (30KM)

Temple of Goddess Kankeshwari situated inside the  jungle.


Also visit Dwarknathji, Tulsishyam Hot Springs, Saadhar, Vijpur Jalaram Temple and Harshad Mataji Temple. 



Gir boasts of over 300 rare species of birds! 

Monsoons are popular for bird watchers. If you want to get a taste of Birdwatching, it may be a good idea to plan a hike to nearby Kamleshwar Dam for a birding trail. 


Lazy folks - You don't have to go too far , if you're lucky you will spot dancing peacocks in and around the Lodge itself !



Pack in some exploration with day trips.

Junagadh is one such place. Located at the foot of the Girnar hills, Junagadh is only a short drive away from Sasan. Literally translated , Junagadh means "Old Fort". The early inhabitants of this city lived under the Indo-Greek Kingdom, and thus the architecture too reflects this exquisite blend. In Junagadh you can visit the Mahabat Maqbara. the Nizam's castle, Uparkot fort and many other architectural marvels.

Another popular place is Jetpur. Jetpur is Gujarat's richest textile hub. It is also one of the largest centers for screen-printing, block printing and yarn dyeing workshops in the country. A pleasure for textile enthusiasts that want to experience the intimate process!  

Beaches are also not far away! 

For sun and sand lovers, Union Territory Diu is hardly a two hour drive away. Here one can spread his legs, unwind and enjoy a drink on the beach.
