Harishchandra ni Chori, Shamalaji

The beautiful Harishchandra ni Chori temple at  Shamalaji dates back to 10th century. The structure is enclosed within courtyard with lost walls except the ornamental gateway.



The temple has a rectangular sanctum and a large pavilion in front of it.



The exquisite 10th century gateway here is oldest in the Gujarat state.
