Gujarat travel guide

4.3
Sacred & Religious Sites · Landmarks · Bodies of Water
Busily scurrying between popular Rajasthan and Mumbai, most tourists skip a stop at Gujarat, the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. Still off the well-beaten path, the region retains much of its bucolic charm, best glimpsed by visiting tiny tribal villages where the locals weave, dye, and embroider arguably the finest textiles available in India. Aside from the obvious cultural appeal, a tour of Gujarat ensures plenty of chances to come face-to-face with the unique regional wildlife, which includes many species of migratory birds and the last of the endangered Asiatic lions.
