Located in the Panchmahal district of Gujarat in India is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park. It is situated close to the historic city of Champaner, which was established by Vanraj Chavda, the most notable ruler of the Chavda Dynasty. The region is a historical feast filled with fortress ruins, numerous mosques, temples, tombs, and stepwells. It is distinguished by forts and bastions that extend from the Pavagadh Hills into Champaner city. Many of the city’s impressive Hindu, Jain, and Islamic religious buildings date back to the era of the Gujarat Sultanate, giving it a strong claim to fame. There is no doubt that this area once housed a well-planned town because of the step wells, cemeteries, granaries, and fortification walls.
