The princess of Balasinor Ms Alia popularly known as Dr. Dinosaur by the people was the tour guide .She was a literature student but after seeing the fossils she got interested in becoming a Palaeontologist. She discovered many fossils but the one nearest to her heart is the masala egg which was named like that because she found it with a village lady who was using it to grind masala.

There were huge statues of Titanosaurus and Rajasaurus. Fossils of 13 species of dinosaurs are found in the Raiyoli fossil park. Dr.Dinosaur also showed us the eggs of herbivore and carnivore dinosaurs. Students were provided sumptuous breakfast and lunch in the palace garden which was full of greenery and beautiful birds.
