Postcard from Gujrat

Travel Diaries !!


A land of street foods which is most of the time you would find sweet, honest people, dance, kite flying, Gandhiji, crafts, Gujrati language and temples.

The most important thing you cannot afford to miss is Sabarmati ashram. The home of father of the nation.

Its a fascinating place where you will get a feel of 1940's. The calmness, serendipity and the campus is great situated on the banks of Sabarmati river.

It is rightly said “Kutch nhi dekha toh kuch nhi dekha”. Everything there feels like the movies so you have to bleed to know you are alive.

From camel’s hump to ocean’s dusk, everything is surreal. this is the awesome Mandvi. And the real taste of corn comes here. Must try!

One place which is underdog of gujrat is Koteshwar. It is mostly famous for Narayan Sarovar Dham which is one of the 4 dhams in India. It has got 300 years old temple and similar age of Peepal tree in its compound. But since 4 years, no rain has been recorded in this place.

When you will enter Ahemdabad, the first thing you will notice is that Gujarati people are obsessed with their mother tongue Gujrati. I saw Mcdonalds, Dominos, Baskin Robins and basic amenities like Toilets for gents and ladies were also written in Gujrati.

At this place you could find all the authentic and cheap traditional crafts of Gujrat.

Believe me, In Ahemdabad after every four homes you could find a temple. That is much larger value when you truly experience it.

For all those who wondered, where Lagaan movie got its story. That cricket match truly happened in Bhuj. The movie is also shot in king’s palace i.e. Prag mahal where you could find the original images of our Indian cricket players and Britishers.
