The Royal Orient  

The Royal Orient, takes you from Delhi through the previously undiscovered state of Gujarat. As well as Udaipur with its romantic palaces on Lake Pichola, and the pink city of Jaipur in Rajasthan. You would also visit the following places during the one-week trip:

Palitana, there are 863 Jain temples of breathtaking beauty on the Shertrunjaya mountain which overlooks the town. Most of the temples with their exquisite sculptures, were built in the 11 th century by the most outstanding artists of their time. 

The next highlight is the temple of Somnath, one of the twelve most sacred Shiva temples. Situated 79 kms. from Junagarh, was built in the 11 th century. It was repeatedly destroyed and each time rebuilt in a more magnificent manner. Anyone who does not want to lie and relax in the sun on the beach of Ahmedpur - Mandvi can explore the former Portuguese island of Diu. In the Sasan Gir wildlife conservation park the more adventurous spirits will get their money’s worth as this is the reserve for the last Asiatic lions.

Ahmedabad, named after its founder Ahmed Shah I, was built on the site of the ancient city of Karnavati. Now the capital of Gujarat, is famous as it was here that Mahatma Gandhi founded his Sabarmati ashram, 7kms. from the city on the banks of Sabarmati river.
