To cover Kutch of different period , PCoG decided to pay a visit to Kutch Fossils Park situated near village Gondiyar, Tal. Nakhtrana, Kutdch on 08-03-2009.
Mr. Mohansinh Sodha of the fossil park , with his sheer passion , sole handly has collected of nearly 13000 fossils of various variety roaming through out in Kutch since 1976.
He has exhibited his collection in various cities and in previous two Rannotsav organised in Rann of Kutch by the Government of Gujarat. What disappoints him is the lack of interest of gernal public let alone the government in “stones”.
In the absence of sufficient resources , he maintains all those fossils in a small room openly on wooden ramps. At PCoG we have decided to cover his work photographically , and publish through the medium net. Further his knowledge regarding the geography and history of Kutch is very vast and is useful we wish to record it somehow.
Thereafter we visited anicent temple of Than Jaagir. The temple is of Dharamnath of Nath Sampradya. Near to that temple, one abandoned temple is there, which is to be said as the old buddhist monastery. Howerver there was nothing to prove the legend.
