DAY 01: AHMEDABAD

Our Gandhi Circuit trip to Gujarat starts in the biggest and most popular city of the state, Ahmedabad. We arrive at the airport in the morning and leave for the hotel to complete the check-in formalities. After taking some time to freshen up, we head to explore some of the most prominent landmarks of the city. 

Since we are walking in the footsteps of Gandhi ji, we start our Gujarat Tour by visiting the Gandhi Ashram, also known as Sabarmati Ashram due to its proximity to the Sabarmati River. Gandhi Ashram was Mahatma Gandhi’s Satyagraha Ashram for many years. The Ashram in its current state and location was established in 1917 and was Gandhi ji’s place of residence for almost 12 years. Today it functions as a museum honouring and celebrating the life of one of the greatest proponents of peace in the world.

Another popular monument on the list today is the Adalaj Stepwell or Vav which is situated in the Adalaj Village in Gandhinagar District. It is a richly carved Vav built in the 15th century by Rani Rudadevi in the memory of her husband Rana Veer Singh. It has Indo-Islamic architectural style.

After visiting these historical places in Ahmedabad, we head to the hotel for an overnight stay.

On day two of this Gujarat holiday package we continue with our Gandhi Circuit Tour and leave for Rajkot. We have breakfast at the hotel and then set out for this 216 KM drive. It takes approximately 4 hours to reach Rajkot and after checking-in to the hotel in the city we leave to visit Kaba Gandhi No Delo. It literally translates to Kaba Gandhi’s residence and has been named after Mahatma Gandhi’s father Karamchand Gandhi, who was also known as Kaba Gandhi. This place was Gandhi ji’s residence till 1915 and has now been converted into a museum called Gandhi Smriti.

As we continue our Gandhi Circuit Tour, we visit the Mahatma Gandhi Museum. It was earlier known as Kathiwar School and later changed to Alfred High School. It was further named Mohandas Gandhi Vidalaya before being turned into a museum. It was inaugurated in 2018, on the occasion of Gandhi ji’s 150th birth anniversary. Gandhi ji was a student of this school and completed his matriculation from here in the year 1887.

After paying a visit to these places built in the memory of the Father of the Nation, we return to our hotel for an overnight stay.

EXPLORING GUJARAT WITH GANDHI CIRCUIT

6 Nights / 7 Days (Land Only)

* Terms & Conditions apply

Gujarat is one of the most diverse states in India. It is known the world over for its rich history, culture, traditions, festivities and even wildlife. People throng to the state to experience the celebrations during Navaratri and to witness the celebration of art and craft of the Kutch Region during the Rann Utsav. The state of Gujarat has no dearth of historical places right from the Bronze Age to the Indian Independence Movement. When you talk about the years preceding Indian Independence, one name that comes to everyone’s mind, and rightfully so, is Mahatma Gandhi. Not only was Mahatma Gandhi the most prominent leader of the freedom movement, but he also went on to become one of the most popular figures in the world, known for his principles and practice of nonviolence. In the world history, his name is taken alongside the likes of Martin Luther King Junior and Nelson Mandela.

EXPLORING GUJARAT WITH GANDHI CIRCUIT

In this Exploring Gujarat Package, we set out to visit all the places in Gujarat that were a part of Mahatma Gandhi’s life and his independence movement. From the museums and institutions in Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Porbandar and Bhavnagar to the last leg of the Dandi March led by Gandhi ji in 1930, we cover a lot of historically significant places. In this Gandhi Circuit route, we pay our respects to the Father of the Nation by visiting his birthplace in Porbandar, the school he attended in Rajkot and various museums that offer a glimpse into his life as a prominent leader.

DAY 03: RAJKOT - PORBANDAR

Day three of our exploring Gujarat holiday takes us further south of the state as we trace the footsteps of Gandhi ji. Our destination of the day is Porbandar, situated 180 KM from the city of Rajkot. We have our breakfast at the hotel and then drive towards Porbandar; the drive takes approximately 3 hours. Porbandar is the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi and that fact has made it a popular place among visitors. One of the most prominent places to see here is Kirti Mandir, the house in which Gandhi ji was born. It consists of 17 rooms spread over 3 storeys, and serves as a museum today letting us walk through the rooms and galleries that Gandhi ji once walked. After this we visit the local market to see the city at close quarters. We return to our hotel in the evening for an overnight stay.

DAY 4: PORBANDAR – BHAVNAGAR

Up next on our Gandhi Circuit in Gujarat is the coastal town of Bhavnagar, located on Gujarat’s southeast coast. It is at a distance of about 304 KM from Porbandar and the drive takes approximately 6 hours.

Once in Bhavnagar, we check-in to our hotel and then leave to explore the city that is one of the important cities in the state of Gujarat from industry and trade point of view. First on the list is Gandhi Smriti, which is right in the middle of the city. It is an institution that was built in 1955 and houses a museum on the ground floor displaying a broad range of archaeological remains from the surrounding areas, and the first floor has a rare collection of pictures from the freedom movement of India, laying emphasis on Mahatma Gandhi’s role.

After this we pay a visit to the Takhteshwar Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is made of white marble and was constructed in 1893. It is one of the most popular landmarks of the city of Bhavnagar and offers commanding views of the city. We then proceed to our hotel for an overnight stay.

DAY 05: BHAVNAGAR - SURAT

Day five of our Gandhi Circuit tour consists of a long drive from Bhavnagar to the town of Surat. It is a 360 drive and can take up to 8 hours to complete. We leave Bhavnagar after breakfast and after reaching Surat we check-in to the hotel.

Surat is located on the banks of River Tapi and is a port city. It is cosmopolitan city well known for its textile and diamond industries. It is well connected by road to other important cities of Gujarat like Ahmedabad and Vadodara. We can spend the evening at leisure exploring the city.

DAY 06: SURAT – CHHAPRABHATA – DINDOLI – DHAMAN – VEJALPORE – DANDI BEACH – SURAT

Day six of our Gandhi Circuit Holiday in Gujarat is going to be the most important and significant day of the tour. Today we head out from Surat to literally walk in the footsteps of the great Mahatma, as we take the same route he did while on the Dandi March in 1930. Dandi March, which is also known as the Salt March or Salt Satyagraha was a nonviolent civil disobedience led by Gandhi ji. It started from the Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad and concluded on the Dandi Beach after 24 days.

We start from Surat towards Dandi Beach, covering Chhaprabhata, Dindoli, Dhaman and Vejalpore on the way. This route is rife with significant historical landmarks that help in informing and educating the visitors about not just Gandhi ji but the protest he led almost a century ago. Once in Dandi we visit the Salt Satyagraha Memorial also known as the Dandi Memorial. The memorial honours Mahatma Gandhi and all those activists who marched with him, and was inaugurated by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on 30th January 2019, the death Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

The Salt Satyagraha was one of the most important movements in India’s struggle for freedom and contributed heavily to our independence from the British rule. After this we return to Surat for an overnight stay.

Gandhi Ashram

DAY 07: SURAT – AHMEDABAD

Today our holiday to Gujarat comes to an end. After having completed the Gandhi Circuit, we make our way back to Ahmedabad to catch our flights for the return journey.
