In this busy life and hectic schedule, we often forget to reconnect with our spirituality. We do take vacations to relax, but we don’t realise that we need to reconnect with our spiritual side before we completely loose it to this world.
Now, if I were to give you an option between two travel destinations; one being a religious spot and the other being fun destination. Which would be your pick? I know your obvious pick would be some place fun and adventurous. But what if I told you that I have a city in mind that could offer you both?
You could have the benefit of undergoing a religious tour, as well as many other fun things. I know this has definitely gotten your attention. Do you wish to know the city I am talking about? The city is none other than the pride of Gujarat- Ahmedabad.
