Champaner is located in Panchmahal district, a few kilometres away from Vadodara at the foot of Pavagadh Hill in Gujarat. Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is studded with 114 monuments, of which only 39 are maintained by the ASI. This module gives a detailed account of these monuments and raises important questions about the challenges faced by architects and archaeologists in maintaining a site as large as this.
