It is the second-largest place in the world, where remains of dinosaur eggs have been found in large quantities. These are the same sites where the Geological Survey of India (GSI) in 1983 stopped a spot while surveying the area for excavation of geological minerals when they found the remains of dinosaurs there. In 1983, the remains of 10,000 eggs of dinosaurs were found here. Fossil scientists (paleontologists) found dinosaur fossils and eggs while digging in the village of Raioli in Balasinor, which is considered to be the world's second-largest fossil site to date.

Balasinor was a princely state of central Gujarat, 90 km from Ahmedabad. The remains of various dinosaur bones were found here in the village of Raioli in Balasinore. These dinosaurs were named after those towns, such as Rajasaurus, Narmadesins, Rahilosaurs, Gujaratiensis, etc. Fossils were found at these places. These fossils were excavated between 1983 and 2003.
Honoring the history and heritage of Gujarat, the Honorable Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Vijay Rupani, inaugurated the new Informatics Center and Museum at Rayoli village in Balasinore, about 100 km from Gandhinagar.
