Gujarat

Gujarat is a fascinating region of Western India - a dazzlingly diverse state that surprises and reveals treasures hidden away from the tourist hordes. Mohandas Gandhi, considered as India's "father of the nation", was a Gujarati who led the Indian Independence Movement against British rule.

Gujarat has played an important role in the economic history of India. It is home to major ports and is a main trade and commerce center. The oil refinery at Jamnagar is the world's largest grass- roots refinery. The world's biggest shipbreaking yard lies near Bhavnagar at Alang. With 20% of the country's total industrial output, it is easily the most industrialized state in India.

The Rann of Kutchch covers a large portion of western Gujarat, and is world-famous for its rare ecosystem, fossils, wildlife and terrain. Gujarat is now the only home of Asiatic Lions that once roamed throughout the Indian subcontinent.

Gujarat is haven for vegetarians as approximately 80% people eat vegetarian food only. It is very famous for the variety of vegetarian dishes including Rotli (Chapati/Puri), Shaak (vegetables and curries), Mithai (sweets), which together with rice and Dal are parts of a standard Gujarati Thali meal in restaurants.

Gujarat contains many notable Hindu and Jain historic sites. The Dwarakadheesh Temple on the tip of the Arabian Sea at Dwarka is an important temple dedicated to Krishna.

Forest Of Gir

The Last Refuge Of The Asiatic Lion
The Sasan Gir National Park is the sole home of the pure Asiatic Lion (Panthera leo persica) and is considered to be one of the most important protected areas in Asia due to its supported species.

The ecosystem of Gir, with its diverse flora and fauna, is protected as a result of the efforts of the Government Forest Department and wildlife activists. The forest area of Gir and its lions were declared as "protected" in the early 1900s by the then Nawab of the princely state of Junagadh. This initiative assisted in the conservation of the lions whose population had plummeted to only 15 individuals through slaughter for trophy hunting. By 2010 the lion-count in Gir had climbed to 411. The lion breeding programme covering the park and surrounding area has bred about 180 lions in captivity since its inception.
