Capture the essence of Gujarat in this sharp slice of the region. What defines Gujarat and the Gujarati people is the history, the lay of the land, the cuisine, the traditions and the various religions that have thrived here… A flavour of this is what we have tried to capture in this quick slice across the region. Take in the modern delights of Ahmedabad, the history of the father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, the freedom struggle for which Gujarat was a major contributor, the last refuge of the Asiatic lions – Gir forest – and the refuge of the Hindu faithful – Dwarka and Somnath.  The ancient Jain temples of Palitana set on a pictureque hill and Lothal, one of the sites of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization await to give you a glimpse of the place in ancient times.
All of this in one action-packed 9 day module to give you Gujarat in a capsule… Take a look…
