Kankai Mata temple
In the heart of the jungle, 50 km from Sasan Gir, there is a shrine to Kankai Mata, the benefactor of the shepherds of Gir forest. Kankai is a supremely wild place where you can hear lions roar at night and animals gathering at the nearby lake. There is a bus from Junagadh every morning that leaves at 8am stays one hour at the temple and departs on the return journey at 9:45am. But to really experience the place go with private transport and stay at night. The high temple walls ensure your safety and once night falls, you can watch the stars through the jungle treetops, hear lions roaming outside and experience a night in the true wilderness.
