Experience Navratri the Gujarati Way!

The festival of Navratri is well known and celebrated all over India. But, there’s a reason why the mention of ‘Navratri’ invariably draws one’s mind towards the state of Gujarat. Nowhere else does one get to witness the transformation of every street in a state into a bustling carnival and a vivid aesthetic masterpiece encompassing various art forms from music to dance and vibrant textile designs. The energy and the vibe that the state radiates during this nine days or rather nine nights long fiesta are absolutely utopic.

Every year, thousands of tourists flock to Gujarat during the event to soak in the festive spirit. The Department of Tourism, Government of Gujarat makes special arrangements to further enhance the experience that they take back. The department organises large scale celebratory events at various locations across the state. The major centers for this are Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat and other large cities of the state apart from the village level celebrations. This year the state of Gujarat, under the supervision of the Department of Tourism will be hosting the much awaited Navratri Festival from 1st to 9th October.

The highlight of the Navratri celebrations in Gujarat is the traditional dance form ‘Garba’ which flows in every Gujarati’s blood. People come out in large numbers with their ‘Dandia sticks’ at night to participate in this delightful activity dressed in the most radiant and colourful traditional outfits. The authentic Gujarati food is also relished by all at the various food stalls that spring up all over the state.

The Department of Tourism, Government of Gujarat, has taken many initiatives for the tourists to have a worldclass experience of this vibrant event. The department has partnered with a number of trusted travel agencies to offer the tourists extremely attractive travel packages and to provide a wider range of offerings to the visitors in addition to the schemes offered by the department itself.

The department along with the agencies offers a variety of tour plans to suit the need of every type of traveller. From a two day trip to a ten day holiday, from 2 star to 5 star hotel stays they have it all. Other than giving visitors a taste of the Navratri celebrations, these tours also encompass visits to major tourist sites and local sightseeing.
