Shamlaji, situated in Gujarat’s Aravalli district, is a significant Hindu pilgrimage site dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple complex, believed to have started in the 11th century and expanded in the 15th-16th centuries, features ancient sculptures including a seventh to eighth-century statue of Lord Vishnu and a sixth-century statue of Lord Shiva. Surrounding the temple are ruins of older structures and artifacts, indicating its historical importance. Nearby, a fourth-century Buddhist site and a prehistoric microlith site contribute further to Shamlaji’s archaeological richness. The site was a prominent center in the sixth century, known for its skilled sculpture craftsmanship, and many artifacts have since been preserved in museums across India. DeshGujarat
