Gujarat Tourism & Travel Guide

Gujarat is the state where baroque palaces meet skies dotted with colourful kites and a flight of flamingos can be seen flying over stark white sands every now and then. The state exhibits in almost every town, stories of Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy, from the Satyagraha Movement to the historic Salt March. Gujarat’s bustling seaports and trade centers, landmark temples and mosques have been drawing in tourists from all over the world. One of the very first things you notice about Gujarat is its eclectic architecture, a remnant of its erstwhile grandeur. Houses bedecked with stained-glass windows, carved angels, floral latticework and ornate motifs can be seen at every turn. Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Mandvi, and Bhuj are some of the most beautiful places to visit in Gujarat. For an understanding of the coexisting Hindu and Muslim cultures in the city, visit the Swaminarayan Temple and the Jama Masjid. Also go to the Sidi Saiyyed Ki Jali, a major attraction mainly due to the Tree of Life Jali (lattice work). When you visit Vadodara, take a train ride through the Sayaji Garden (Kamathi Baug) and make a definite stop at Laxmi Vilas Palace that is renowned for its bizarre architecture wherein a mosque, church, temple and gurudwara stand alongside each other. For a taste of Gujarat’s maritime past and the best dabeli (a street eat) you could get, plan a getaway to Mandvi. Travel to Bhuj for its royal forts and the spectacular Rann of Kutch.
