About Rajula Tourism
Rajula is one of the main towns of Amreli District in Gujarat renowned for its rich heritage, which provides a glimpse of the Rajputana Kingdom.
Earlier the town was located between Dholio Dunger and Piriyo Dungar, but with the passage of time the boundaries of the town have expanded in all directions. The region was once under the rule of the Marathas, who established their reign over the region in 1780. The territory was also acquired by the Gaekwads, who chose Amreli as the headquarters for their Kathewad pranth. The culture of the village is preserved by Darbars Garashiya and is developed by the Bania Kapol community. Besides, the culture of the destination is reflected in the festivals such as Satam Atham and Janmashtami.
Kumbhnath Sukhnath Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is the chief attraction of Rajula. The ancient shrine of Lord Shiva on the banks of River Ghano is believed to be founded by Bhima and Yudhishthira. Another temple of Lord Shiva is situated at Dhareshwar, 4 km from Rajula. The highlight of this temple is the Bathing Kund, where devotees can take a holy dip. Besides, there is a small lake close to Maruti Dham, which is among the chief attractions of the town. An initiative is taken by the Kapol community to preserve the ancient sites including gardens, lakes and wells, bathing spots, smashan bhoomi, dharamshalas and gaushalas.
