January is the perfect time to indulge in this relaxing experience, for the Rann Utsav is alive and kicking!
THE GREAT RANN OF KUTCH
The largest district of India, ‘Kutch’ originates from the Sanskrit word ‘Kutchboo‘, meaning tortoise. This is because the region resembles the back of a tortoise with its centre in Bhuj that is elevated while it slopes down gradually as one goes outwards. The land of Kutch has always been known to be brimming with festivity, unparalleled vigour and excitement!
