Gujarat Ayurved University
Further down the road from the Solarium, you can find Gujarat Ayurved University, the largest Ayurvedic teaching center in Gujarat. It was established in 1967, following a history of staunch support for Ayurvedic medicine from the rulers of the original princely state of Nawanagar. There are a number of departments and programs, including Yoga & Naturopathy Education and Research wing. There are also courses for foreign students, both short-term and long-term. The university has two hospitals with free medicine and consultation, and grows many of its own medicinal herbs.
How to get there
By road: Jamnagar is 92 km from Rajkot State transport buses and private luxury coaches connect Jamnagar with various centres of Gujarat. If you’re coming from Rajkot on bus, the bus passes right through town before reaching the bus station, so you can ask to be let off at Bedi Gate.
By rail: There are daily trains on the Western Railway with direct connections to Ahmedabad.
By air: There is an airport 10 km from town, so it’s a relatively inexpensive rickshaw or taxi ride. Various domestic airlines connect Jamnagar to Mumbai.
