THE WHITE RANN

THE WHITE RANN

Sunrise & Sunset:

Great White Rann of Kutch is One Of Its Kind places. It is the world largest salt desert, measuring over 7505 Sq.km. What makes it more amazing is the fact that for about it is underwater during the main monsoon season in India and for the remaining eight months of the year it is an enormous stretch of packed white salt.

The magnificent beauty of “White Desert” is the centre of attraction, especially; a moment of pure bliss at the time of sunset in the white desert is one of the best experiences ever. Great Rann of Kutch- We could imagine only the sea of salt after hearing about Rann of Kutch but the stunning and unique place is more than the desert of salt.

Full Moon

THE WHITE RANN

Full Moon night

The full moon night revives the century-old traditional music, dance, and traditional vocal art, an experience worth a lifetime- astoundingly beautiful. If the moon is near full, the white desert and its surrounding sparkles with bright stars and there is no need for artificial light. The white chalk landscape is known for its spectacular scenery. The brilliant panorama of the white desert is thrust up from the surface of the desert, intensified by the clear light of the moon, shimmering gold at sunset or black end and shrunken in a cloud- filled day. The silence is immense and there is a feeling of unreality as through walking on the surface of Moon. A white desert is a place that that is very hard to leave. It’s truly a magical experience.

THE WHITE RANN: No Moon Night

The darkest night produces the highest stars. Reach for staring while gazing them. Once you will look up at dark sky sparking would the stars, you would not be able to stop looking up.

Aina Mahal

AINA MAHAL

Aina Mahal is among one of the wonders of Gujarat. The Mahal was erected in 18th the century. The layout, interior and embellishments of Bhuj Aina Mahal were highly directed by a royal fantasy that had eventually been converted into reality by an extremely deft craftsman - Ramsinh Malam. It is located in the old part of the city. In 2001, a sudden convolution of the land had disfigured the mahal yet a lot was preserved back and later, the Mahal was converted into a museum. The main attraction at Aina Mahal is the HALL OF MIRRORS. The palace looks like any other ordinary old structure but when you enter you would be thrilled with the visual sight of an enormous chariot on display, a weighing machine of those times, a 14 feet long painting on a single canvas.

Prag Mahal

PRAG MAHAL

Prag Mahal is one of the engineering wonders of Gujarat. The Mahal is situated just next to the Aina Mahal. It took 12 long years to build Prag Mahal.

A princely 19th-century palace, now converted into a museum gives you an aura of the regal times of the bygone era. The 2001 Gujarat earthquake severely damaged the palace. Later the palace was burgled with thieves stealing antiques worth millions. Today, the palace is in a ghostly state. The beautiful picturesque stairway leads to the corridor that opens into a large hall with huge broken chandeliers hanging low. There are two rooms along the hall open for visitors that were in decay state. The palace indeed was shaken to the core by the earthquake and here laid the evidence of the catastrophe.

Mandvi Beach

MANDVI BEACH

The Land Of Boats, Mandvi is a perfect one-day excursion for those who are seeking some “Aqua time”. The Mandvi district lies at a distance of an hour or two maximum from the main city of Bhuj. Not known to most, Mandvi was a major port of India during the British era. It is also the hub of wooden boat making in our country. One can actually see the spectacle that goes into making these wooden boats as we enter the town area. The close proximity of the beach to the town as well as the Vijay Vilas Palace aka Kutch palace let you enjoy the sunset on the beach with the beautiful seagulls that migrate here for winters, without wasting the whole day. Whether it’s a quiet camel ride on the beach or the perspective alignment of windmills that line up on your way to Mandvi, this place has a lot to offer for those hidden "Pirates of deserts" in you.

Swaminarayan Temple

SWAMI NARAYAN TEMPLE

Swami Narayan Temple is an absolute marvel and is must visit. This place is closest to Bhuj and attracts devotees and travellers from across the world.

Demolished due to the earthquake in the year 2001, the entire temple was reerected with the contribution of devotees from across the world. Stationed just down the road from the Ramkund step well and the Alfred High school, the temple marks the spot where Swaminarayan sat with local holy men when he came through Bhuj. Here, the architecture exudes serenity. The visit here promises a truly quality time. As the weather cools, the streets near the temple begin to sparkle with festive lights, and the atmosphere offers a cosy retreat.
