​Impressive Architecture

​Bhuj, the capital city of Kutch, is home to several architectural wonders, including, the Prag Mahal that combines European and Indian architectural styles, the Aina Mahal (hall of mirrors), the Ramkund Stepwell, and the Royal Chhatardis.

​Flamingo City

​Every winter at the Kutch Desert Wildlife Sanctuary, thousands of flamingos migrate to breed and the resultant sight is spectacular. If you're lucky, you can also catch a glimpse of several other migratory birds, including the Lesser Florican and Houbara Bustard.

​Rann Utsav

​Gujarat Tourism hosts the Rann Utsav festival every year from November to early February. Hundreds of luxury tents are set up in Dhordo and it brings together local artisans, folk artists, and musicians to give tourists a glimpse of the state’s rich culture.

​Wildlife Experience

​The Wild Ass Wildlife Sanctuary in the Rann of Kutch features a large population of the endangered Indian wild ass. Other animals that you can witness here are nilgais, white-footed desert foxes, desert cats, and striped hyenas.

​Kalo Dungar
