One of the most beautiful places in Gujarat, Kutch (also spelled as Kachchh) is a district of Gujarat state in western India. With more than 45,000 square km area, it is the largest district in India, situated in the North-West of Gujarat. In addition, it is situated on the India-Pakistan border.
It is surrounded by the Gulf of Kutch and the Arabian Sea to the south and west, while the northern and eastern part is surrounded by the Great Rann of Kutch. The Great Rann is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Gujarat.
Kutch Museum, Kalo Dunger, Hamirsar Lake, Mandvi Beach, Aaina Mahal, Dholavira, Kutch Bustard Sanctuary, and Indian Wild Ass Sanctuary are some major tourist attractions in the district.
The food in Kutch is predominantly vegetarian, which is considered to be dominated by Jainism and Brahmanism, both of which follow strict vegetarianism. Every year from December to February, the Government of Gujarat hosts a 3-month festival of Rann Utsav near Dhordo village.
