Where azure seas meet sparkling sands, blushing sunsets embraces rosy dawns. The jungles are verdant, lush and green, where lion`s prowl and flamingoes preen. Marble temples white and pure; reflect the glory of the days of yore. Age-old palaces browned in the sun and water parks for a day of fun. Here tribal life is a celebration, of music, dance and multicolored traditions.
Mumbai (Bombay) is the vibrant and pulsating capital of Maharashtra. For over a century, Mumbai has been a commercial and industrial centre of India with a magnificent harbour, imposing multi-storeyed buildings, crowded thoroughfares, busy markets, shopping centers and beautiful tourist spots. The British acquired Mumbai from the Portuguese in 1665 and handed it over to the East India Company in 1671 for a handsome annual rent of Sterling Pounds 10 in Gold. Later, these seven islands were joined together by causeways and bridges in 1862.
Gujarat`s principle city, Ahmedabad is a major industrial centre, often called the "Manchester of the East". Originally founded in 1411 by Ahmed Shah, Ahmedabad attained its grandeur in the 17th Century. After the arrival of the British, it became important because of its industries. It is famous as the home of Mahatma Gandhi`s Sabarmati Ashram, from where the famous Dandi March commenced.
Once the capital of a princely state, Bhavnagar was founded in 1743. It is now a flourishing port on the Gulf of Khambhat. The Bhavnagar lock-gate keeps ships afloat in the city`s port at low tide.
Rajkot is founded in the year of 1610 by Vibhaji Jadeja & Raju Sandhi. Rajkot was once the capital of the princely state of Saurashtra. Today it is best known as the town where Mahatma Gandhi spent the early years of his life when his father was a Diwan or Prime Minister to the king of Saurashtra.
Bhuj, the westernmost city of India, is a treasure trove of heritage and culture. Like few other towns, which have escaped the tourist invasion in India, Bhuj offers to the traveler hospitality hitherto unseen in modern times. Bhuj is known for its small, meandering streets, palaces and temples. It also has the oldest museum in the state of Gujarat.
The Sasangir National Park and Lion Sanctuary in the Kathiwad peninsula of Gujarat has the distinction of being the last earthly refuge of the majestic Asiatic lion (Panthera leo). It is home of some 300 lions of this close to being extinct Asiatic species. The Park is a popular tourist destination, with some sixty thousand wide-eyed tourists visiting the Park in the hope of catching a glimpse of the proud and rare lion in 1999-2000. Apart from the Asiatic Lions, the park is also home to large number of chitals, chinkara, leopard, wild ass and many other animals.
