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.

Kalo Dungar, Gujarat 370510
Yet another hillock that overlooks the Great Raan of Kutch, this place is often referred to as Black Hill. Hence the name, Kalo Dungar. One will find the sacred Dattatreya temple atop the hill which is quite a distance to cover. Along ones way, uphill one is introduced to a number of ravines and canyons that remind one of the forces of nature that are at contact play. The area is covered in greenery and moss. One is sure to enjoy the clean air and sacred atmosphere at the temple atop Kalo Dungar.

Best Time to Visit Gujarat

Peak Season is from mid-November to mid- February when the weather is comfortable, cool and pleasant.

Shoulder Season: Mid-June to October is when Goa is at its most beautiful. The rains come down on the state during these months and while the countryside becomes a lush green, the clubs start brimming with people and raging parties.

Off-season: This is the time between March to May, when the temperatures soar and the prices of the hotels and homestays drop. This is the time to visit Goa if you are looking for some quiet days, away from the touristy crowds.
