The Zero Stone - Like an old man sitting under a banyan tree ready to tell a story!

The Zero Stone is placed outside the general post office on Sadhu Vaswani Mission road. The stone marks the point from where the distances between cities are measured. It marks the exact geographical location of the city.

Under the british raj, 80 such zero stones were installed at government post offices across India after a survey.

This stone was hidden under broomsticks, used by a fruit seller as a chair until it was restored in 2019.
