The following series of photos give an overview of my time spent in Junagadh, India. The ancient city is fascinating but sees few foreign travelers due to its location in the state of Gugarat, far from tourist trail in India. See what there is waiting to be discovered in an under-appreciated city like Junagadh.

Wow, these are superb! I love the shot of the mausoleum… what a surprising structure!
Nice photos! definitely look less crowded than how I imagine India to be. Can’t wait to go there myself.
wow! amazing! the Vazir’s Mausoleum at Mahabat Maqbara. is beautiful! I literally had to close my jaw… couldn’t imagine seeing it in person
Rebecca, it’s hard to believe the Mausoleum wasn’t even protected by the authorities. It’s just open for anyone to come in. When I visited there were a bunch of teenagers there hanging out. Unfortunately this doesn’t help preserve the monument.
