Kalol in One Day
The city is divided into three parts. The eastern part where the industries have been developed is a hub for offices, companies and factories. Hence it is best to avoid that part of the city until and unless one wants to visualize the famous Sintex Industries and Bharat Vijay Mills. The offices and the mill factories are not open to general public. One can however visualize the set up of industries in this part of the city from an eagle’s point of view.
The temples are situated in the other two parts of the city. The temples can be visited at any time of the day. Furthermore, the locations of most temples are in the heart of the city.
