West & Central IndiaGujarat

In the home of the Asiatic Lion and Mahatma Gandhi, it is little wonder that the quiet pride of Gujaratis emanates everywhere you turn. All around, the colors of textiles and food assuage your senses leaving you a little bit overwhelmed but much richer in culture. And if you hear anyone yell ‘Kai Poche!’, look up and you’ll see a kite flutter to the ground; the annual kite festival is a sight to behold. Gujarat has so much more going for it besides fun, food and culture. It’s rich heritage and mythological significance in Indian epics, coupled with the voices of change that have arisen in recent times, makes it a simple reminder to artisans and business-folk alike that one state can make a change in the dialog of a nation.

Palitana

An incredible maze of hundreds of Jain temples adorns the sides of the Shatrunjaya Hill. Considered to be the most sacred site for Jains, the shrines are all distinct in design and carvings, yet a singular theme threads them together.

Mandvi

Just about an hour from Bhuj, Mandvi is a great place to spend a day! There’s a beach, the Vijay Vilas Palace and a memorial dedicated to one of the unsung heroes in the struggle for Indian Independence.

Surat

Hailed as the Diamond Heart of the World, Surat has many workshops dedicated to the cutting and polishing of diamonds. Unsurprisingly, diamonds from around the world are brought here to be polished by the best in the business. Stop by at one of the workshops to take a look at how it’s done.

Bhuj

Centrally located in the Northwestern part of the state, Bhuj transforms into a hotspot every year during the Rann Utsav. The celebration of the expansive salt flats brings local village handicrafts and camel rides with it.

Dwarka

The coastal town of Dwarka is most famous for the Dwarkadish Temple, one of the most sacred sites for Hindus. The place is always teeming with pilgrims and visitors looking to experience the power of the Lord enshrined here. Nearby Somnath is also a must-see place.

Gir

The Gir National Park is literally the only place in the world where you can catch a glimpse of the majestic, albeit languid, Asiatic Lion. A trip to Gujarat would be incomplete without a trip to the Gir.

Ahmedabad

The former capital of Gujarat is a great place to catch all the knick knacks of the state. Ahmedabad is Gujarat in a nutshell. Amdavadi cuisine is scrumptious and healthy, and the place runs on local handicrafts. Besides, there are also heritage sites like the Modhera Sun Temple and Patan nearby, for a quick day outing.
