You don't have to limit your tour to the attractions of Mahesana because the whole region is laced with a wealth of great things to see and do. Patan and Gandhinagar are two other places worth seeing while you're in Gujarat.
An excellent way to understand a place is by knowing about its past. So be sure to visit the historic palaces while you are in the area. This region has been graced with a truly fascinating religious life; so take the time to visit the area's many temples.
Pack your gear or rent it on the spot, and discover the local water activities. Rafting is a popular activity. Another is boating. If you're not the kind of traveler to take vacations purely to relax by the pool all day, Gujarat offers a number of adventure pursuits like caving and hiking.
The 26th of Janurary is Republic Day, so if you're visiting at this time, keep in mind that banks, business and some attractions may have reduced opening hours as the country celebrates.
For those who plan on arriving and departing by air, it's handy to remember that the most convenient major airport is Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southeast of Mahesana.
