Vibrant Gujrat, Indeed!

There are so many places to visit in Gujarat. I had heard that Gujarat is the place where festivals never end. The list of must visit places is topped by Great Rann of Kutch (try visiting during rann utsav), Somnath Mahadev Temple, Sabarmati Ashram, Akshardham Temple, Gir National Park( don't miss this), ISKCON Temple, Sardar Sarovar Dam and Laxmi vilas palace.

Gujrati food as is famous, lived to my expectations, though you can easily find the kind of food you want to eat. Shopping can be done from local markets and very good quality of silk sarees from Gujarat. Activities that I did included safari ride, sightseeing and trying Gujarat food (Believe me you don't want to miss this).

My advice to fellow travellers would be to try going during the rann utsav. You can reach easily as Gujrat is one of the most well connected states of India. The hotel which I stayed was very good and I liked it very much. Food and hospitality was also better than expected. Transportation facility was pretty good. I stayed in Ahmedabad, thus had access to many shopping malls and the other gender in our group bought many dresses. As, I stated above, Silk is the specialty here and the price is also in range in which the material was too good. Overall, the experience was amazing.

Gujarat Overview

Gujarat is the westernmost state of India, a part of it projecting out into the Arabian Sea. It shares an international border with Pakistan in the northwest and common borders with the states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra, and the Union Territories of Diu, Daman and Dadra & Nagar Haveli.   Gujarat can be divided into three geographical regions: the eastern region that has the major cities of Ahmedabad, Surat and Vadodra; the Saurashtra region between the Gulf of Cambay and the Gulf of Kutch; the northern region of Kutch which is a salty desert.   This is the most industrialised state in the country and contributes about one-fifth of the total industrial output of India. It does particularly well in textiles and electronics, and has the largest petrochemical complex in India. Though Gandhinagar is the capital of the state, Ahmedabad, its former capital, is commercially and historically the most important city, containing Gujarat's only international airport. It's famous for its architectural heritage mosques and mausoleums in a fusion of Hindu and Islamic traditions and ornate step-wells called baolis in the local language. Surat is a centre of diamond polishing and trade and Vadodara is an erstwhile princely estate.   On the coast of Gujarat are some beaches including the old port-town of Mandvi, but the famous coastal spots are the temples of Somnath and Dwarka. The ancient temple at Somnath was repeatedly plundered and the present structure dates to 1950s, but it carries ancient sanctity for Hindu devotees. The popular 16th-century temple at Dwarka is devoted to Lord Krishna and associated with Meerabai. The town of Palitana is famous for its more than 800 Jain temples, some of them as old as the 11th century. At Lothal are the ruins of an ancient port of the Indus Valley civilization dating from 2400BC. The Sasan Gir National Park in Gujarat is the only place where the Asiatic Lion still survives. The Wild Ass sanctuary in the Little Rann of Kutch is a World Heritage site.   Navaratri the festival of nine nights devoted to Goddess Durga is Gujarat's most important festival and social event. It is celebrated in September-October with mass all-night song-and-dance programmes.
