Gujarat offers much more that being the birthplace of Ghandi, including hilltop temples, untouched villages and windswept beaches.
Gujarat is located on India's western coast, on the Arabian Sea. The state is most famous for being the birthplace of Mahatma Ghandi, whose legacy can be seen in many places.
But there is a lot more to explore and enjoy in Gujarat. The state capital of Ahmedabad has some stunning architecture that has made it a UNESCO Heritage city. Explore many ancient mosques and temples, Ghandi's former headquarters at Sabarmati Ashram, the excellent Calico Museum of Textiles or perhaps enjoy some street food at Ratri Bazaar.
Gir National Park is a major attraction due to it being one of the few places you can observe the Asiatic Lion. The best time to visit is between December and April in the dry season. Located between Veraval and Junagadh, the park is a total of over 1400 square kilomotres in size. The access is strictly controlled through authorised safaris.
The spectacular temple at Shatrunjaya is also worth visiting, if you are able to climb the 3000 odd steps to this hilltop pilgrimage site, one of the holiest of Jainism. Champaner and Pavagadh are the locations for similar hilltop pilgrimage sites, offering stunning views and an insight into the history of Gujarat - Champaner was Gujarat's ancient capital.
Gujarat also offers many unspoilt coastal resorts to relax. Perhaps the most inviting being the island of Diu, a former Portuguese colony. Here, white sandy beaches await with swaying palms and a relaxed, chilled atmosphere.
