Day 06        Balaram - Patan - Little Rann of Kutch
Today, we drive to Patan. Once the capital of medieval Gujarat, Patan is known for its Hindu and Jain architecture like Rani-ki-Vav, Rani and Dhanderwad Jain Temple among many other attractions. Patan is also famous for patola (an intricate form of double ikkat weaving) sarees.
Arrive Patan and visit one of the three families of patola weavers, known for their unique patola art. The fact that one patola sari can take up to six months to complete, proves that how difficult and demanding is the patola art. Also visit the famous 11th century Rani-ki-Vav (step well). All three families live close to this step well.
