The Experience starts with a long pathway and an open plaza, leading to the huge doorway, the surrounding garden, central temple with sea on one side and city on other side which provides various sequences of experiences. Being situated on the seaside the dominant quality is the spiritual connectivity with the water ,long journey before the entrance, strong presence in the space and a great architectural Chalukya style with 15 meter temple Shikhara situated at brahmasthan according to inscription. It starts with the presence of shrine from far away. So as we move closer. the statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel guides us towards the entrance due to its directional nature towards the temple. Then we move through a narrow shaded entrance towards the main gate which leads us inside. This exposes us to the series of pathways through green spaces. We get attracted towards the large shrine and the series of large columns providing the entry to the temple. Then as we get out of the temple from the sideways we get exposed towards the sea and the podium along the coastline provides a space to rest and enjoy the view of the overall environment.
