Mehsana, the headquarters of Mehsana District
, is one of the largest cities of Gujarat
. The city serves as an important center of agriculture and business. The Dudhsagar Dairy run on co-operative basis is an important society in Mehsana. The building which houses the dairy has been designed by merging the utilitarian and aesthetic concepts and is a good piece of work for those interested in building architecture.
Shri Mehsana Teerth
, which holds a 12 foot high, white-colored idol of Bhagvan Seemandhar Swami in the Padmasana posture, is the main attraction of the city.
Mehsana has its own railway station and the Ahmedabad-Mehsana highway passing by the outskirts of the city also helps in its accessibility. The airport is at Ahmedabad.
