Located on the country’s western coast, Gujarat is one of the most vibrant coastal states of India, rich in crafts, history, and natural beauty. The place derives its name from ‘Gujaratta’ meaning the land of Gurjars who passed through Punjab and settled in some parts of Western India. They were the sub-tribes of the Huns who ruled the area during the 8th and 9th centuries AD.
