Classic Gujarat

 

BOMBAY-AHMEDABAD-VADODARA-BHAVNAGAR-GIR-PORBANDER-DWARKA-RAJKOT-BOMBAY

 

Gujarat, whose most famous son was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi – a seemingly frail little man with a will of iron and a vision that realized the independent Republic of India. In many ways he epitomized his home state whose long and sheltered coastline has, since time immemorial been dotted with ports that traded with contemporary cultures in goods as well as culture and philosophy. Ever open to the winds of change, it has never been blown away by them, developing instead a rich heritage that gives it an identity all its own.
This itinerary takes you to the excavated port of Lothal where 4,500 years ago ships from Eygpt, Persia and Mesopotamia anchored regularly. You visit the ancient temples at Dwarka where the Lord Krishna is said to have founded a city, since then submerged by the sea, 5,000 years ago; stop at Porbandar where Gandhiji was born in 1869; discover the lair of the extremely endangered Asiatic lion in Gir, the small forest reserve hat remains his last sactuary. There are temples forts, palaces and museums with hours of stories, legends and antiquities to explore at Bhavnager, Champaner, Junagarh, Palitana Vadodara . . . more than enough to have you planning another visit in the near future.

Jewels of Information :
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi trained as a lawyer in South Africa.  Apartheid forced him to question the western concepts of justice and equality and their interpretation in the colonies. From there to a demand for self-rule was a short step, as was his belief in non- violence, for violence is rooted in a lack of moral standing.
