WESTERN INDIA / OVERVIEW >>    

Gujarat is one of India’s least visited states but has much to offer the tourist including excellent examples of Gujarati provincial architecture, superb temples and a few good beaches. It is the only place where the Asiatic lion can be seen in the wild. Ahmedabad is Gujurat’s main commercial and cultural city. Gandhi was born in Gujarat and set up his ashram at Sabarmati from where he started the Salt March, a significant action as part of the struggle for independence.

Maharashtra is a huge state (India’s third largest and second most populous). Its state capital Mumbai (Bombay) is India’s commercial centre and has a major hub airport. Some of the world’s earliest frescoes and carvings can be found at the caves of Ajanta and Ellora. India’s first railway line started in Mumbai and Victoria Terminus (now called Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus or CST) is a magnificent example of Victorian Gothic architecture.

Major attractions & cities of this area:
Ahmedabad; Sasan Gir (the last remaining habitat of the Asiatic lion); Sun Temple at Modhera; the Rann of Kutch: Mumbai; Ellora and Ajanta Caves; the mountain railway to Matheran.

Best time to visit Gujarat: October to March

Know Before You Go: to make an informed decision about the destination you are considering visiting citizens should take the advice of their respective governments. For British citizens that is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The FCO website gives travel advice (health, safety, security etc) for every country. We recommend you look at this before booking any holiday and then again before departure. (https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice)
