hustle bustle of daily life. The tour takes you to a number of exotic
locations situated in the heart of Kutch Peninsula, like Bhuj, a major
city that acts as the center of all activity during the Mahotsav. Other
places include Mata no Madh, a 1200 year old temple dedicated to Mother
Godess and Lakhpat, a banished port that reminds of the days of the
yore, when it was the hub of Gujarat's sea trade.
