This is inscription on huge stone in Pali language by King Ashoka near Girnar mountain. Done more than 1000 years ago after he converted to Buddhism and started spreading peace and love.

As of now the place is under renovation and you cannot actually see anything. Its on the way to Girinar. The building houses a rock with writing from the Ashokan era. Not something you can translate unless you are a historian or something, but yes a historical monument so once the renovation is done and hopefully there is a translation... More

Nothing to see except a small rock with Ashokan scriptures engraved on it. Can visit only if u have enough time in hand after visiting the major tourist attractions of Junagadh.

It's a historical place to visit. If you travel to Junagadh you must visit it. It hardly take half an hour to visit. It is written in the Pali language.
