Gujarat: A Tourist Guide to Chorwad
Swaying coconut trees nod their heads to welcome tourists to a secluded and tranquil sea beach of Chorwad, about 36 km away from Somnath. Western corridor of the 5 km long sea beach of Chorwad is covered entirely with pieces of stones. Blue water waves of the ocean hit vigorously on the uneven beach land and produces a melancholy and soothing sound. The unmatched sight of Chorwad is just perfect for someone who wants to take rest amidst the absorbing natural environs.
Once known as the pretty summer palace of the Nawab of Junagarh is now in ruins. But, all the holiday makers would be able to experience the old glory days of Chorwad when they get to see the whole premise of the historical summer palace, built in 1928, is adorned marvelously with swaging coconut and palm trees.
At the end of a peaceful beach tour, spiritual crowds can take a walk to watch the divine Shiva in the sanctified Shiva temple, located at the northern side of the captivating Chorwad sea beach. Catch a glimpse of the innumerable shrines, positioned at the road sides.
Apart from the scenic views and enamoring blue ocean waves, Chorwad has lot more to offer. The class-apart vista of the rising sun, coming out from the lap of the transparent water of the sea, is truly praiseworthy. The attractiveness and appeal of the beguiling sunset of Chorwad pull huge numbers of tourists as well.
