STORY #24: WAGHAN POL,THE TIGER GATE

This third Gate is called Waghan Pol. Can you guess where it got its name Waghan means tigress in Gujarati. To the right of the gate is carving of a tigress, which is how this gate got its name. Two brothers, Vastupal and Tejpal, built this gate approximately 800 years ago in the memory of a brave man, Veer Vikram Singh. It is said that a tigress was killing and scaring away pilgrims coming here. Veer Vikram Singh fought courageously and killed the tigress but also gave up his own life to protect the pilgrims. Stop just inside the gate and on either side you will see an edict, or inscription. Look in More Stops to learn about the edict.

STORY #25: WALL CARVING PRAISING VASTUPAL AND TEJPAL



The script carved in marble speaks praises of Vastupal and Tejpal. These two brothers used their tremendous wealth to build devotional miracles in expensive white marble with intricate carvings. These beautiful temples speak to their devotion, faith, and wisdom.

They created such wonders of art, including the temples of Delwara in Mount Abu, and many in temple city Palitana, Girnar etc. All of mankind benefit from their grand deeds and are forever indebted.
