At the meeting point of Rivers Saraswati, Narmada and Orsang in Dabhoi taluka, stands the city of temples, Chandod. Renowned as a holy site, a dip here is considered to be very sacred. Located around 55 km from Vadodara, Chandod is home to the temples of Kashi Vishwanath and Mahadev. Chandod is often referred to as Dakshini Prayag because of the Triveni Sangam (the holy union of the three rivers). Along the bank of Narmada, there are six ghats one can visit. Most of these ghats are used to perform death rituals according to Hindu tradition. One of the ghats is Mallharao that has 64 steps and is 60 ft wide. Named after the father-in-law of Ahilya Bai Holkar, the queen of Indore, the ghat was built with money said to have been found under a sacred tulsi (basil) plant. Other prominent ghats here include Chakrapni, Yama, Harijan, Kapileshwar and Swami.
