A state with a diverse and varied topography ranging from the deep dense forests of Gir to the stark white salt plains of Rann of Kutch. Boasting of a coastline of 1660 kms, the region is rich in aqua fauna, flora and marine species as well. Steeped into history, the state has beautiful reminisces of its historical richness at the Mohenjodaro / Harappa site at Dholavira, Sun Temple at Modhera and the intricately carved ancient step-wells (Vavs) at various locations. Gujarat has seen many migrations and the local culture has seen an amalgamation of the cuisines, clothes, fairs, festivals and practices with the migratory culture, creating a great diversity.
Stretching out into the Arabian Sea, with a hint of the desert and a grand coastline, the home state of Mahatma Gandhi is renowned for its beaches, temple towns and historic capitals, wildlife sanctuaries and hill resorts.
Besides the monuments and temples, the state?s major attractions include the only habitat of the Asiatic Lions in India at Gir, a desert ride at the Wild Ass Sanctuary, colourful tribal villages at Kutch and the beautiful Indo-Saracenic Architecture of Ahmedabad.
