Sabarmati Ashram, GujaratTourists exploring the western part of the Indian subcontinent would always like to make a trip to the state of Gujarat. And this is just not because of the almost-extinct Asiatic Lions, there are more reasons to it. You have temple towns and ancient historical capitals to explore. Being a prosperous textile industry in the past years, Gujarat offers you wonderful opportunities of shopping. Apart from that, the state is known for its toothsome culinary delights. You must be aware that Gujarati cuisine has the eminence of being on the best-tasting vegetarian cuisine list in the world.

The southern part of the state has moist climatic conditions whereas the northern region remains dry. March, April and May are the summer months. Winter extends from November to February. The southwest monsoons bring a good amount of rainfall to the state between June and September. You can plan your trip to Gujarat during the winter months.
