Gujarat is the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation. Located in the western part of India, Gujarat experiences a tropical atmosphere and lies at a close proximity to the ruins of the Indus Valley Civilization. The land of fairs & festivals, the most notable ones are probably the festivals of Navratri & Diwali, which are celebrated with great zeal and vigor. The festivals are dedicated to Goddess Shakti & Lord Rama respectively and are celebrated through colorful dances, firecracker shows, endless eateries and socializing.
Another attraction of Gujarat is the spotlessly white expanse salty marsh called the Rann of Kachch. The Rann Utsav held here is a four-month-long showcase of extravaganza, with remarkable cultural shows and competitions. In Gujarat, you will run into the majestic Asiatic Lions in the Gir National Park. The International Kite Festival is too held here in the city of Ahmedabad.
