Gir National Park
The only natural habitat of the Asiatic Lions, Gir National Park is the best place to come face to face with them.
Spread across nearly 1412 sq km of land, this is also the only national park in India that has a community living inside its perimeters, and that too in complete harmony with each other.
One of the first Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva, Somnath Temple is not just a religious site. Lying on the rugged Arabian coast, the temple is also a thing of wonder. It has been destroyed and rebuilt countless times. once by Lord Soma in gold, once by Ravana in silver, once by Krishna in wood and once by King Bhimdev in stone.
Rann of Kutch
Rann of Kutch is most beautiful thing you will ever see. Nestled comfortably between the endless Thar Desert, Rann of Kutch is a mesmerizing wonder of sand and salt. On full moon nights, the desert shines bright as a diamond, and brings a surreal sense of calm with it.
Saputara Hill Station
The only “hill-station” in Gujarat, Sapatura comes as a breath of fresh air in the otherwise hot and humid clime of the state. Sprawled beautifully on a densely forested plateau, Saputara is a hot new tourist destination, with a gigantic lake surrounded by resorts. It doesn’t get very cold there, but monsoons can be the best time to visit when the mist rises out of the lake and covers the nearby area.
Laxmi Vilas Palace, Vadodara
When Laxmi Vilas Palace was built by Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III, it was the largest private Residential Building in the world. Does that give an idea of its size? The palace compound covers an area of more than 700 acres, and houses several other buildings such as the Maharaja Fateh Singh Museum and the Moti Baug Palace.
