    The wild west of India is always filled with majestic monuments, historical places and lots of interesting culture. I went on a solo trip to Kutch to experience the vast expanses of white desert, be awed by its centuries old crafts and architecture, and feel the unique landscapes

    I travelled by bus, since it was cheaper :P It took me about a day to reach there. The long journey had its adverse effects and I reached the place while I was still quite sleepy. So I went to the place I was staying immediately

    I was lucky enough to have a friend who helped me get a home stay in Khamir Craft centre, which was also very close to Bhuj. The place had some beautiful woven cloth and handicraft work. I unpacked and slept for a while, after which I decided to go check out Bhuj.

    I started walking down the market, and even there some buildings had unique architecture! The streets were full of life and selling a large variety of goods, including exquisitely embroidered textiles and awesome mirrorwork. They proved to be excellent souvenirs

    I also went to an NGO run museum known an Living and Learning Design Center. It had a variety of handicrafts and impressive artwork. The multimedia features also give an in-depth explanation of the centuries old crafts and individual exhibits

    A breathtaking Ahir embroidered saree which took about 1 and a half years to make! The museum had metalwork, artwork, leatherwork, silverwork amd even Rogan printing. It contained all the beautiful pieces of Kutch creativity

    The next day, it was time to go to one of the most famous places in Gujarat, the Aaina Mahal. I couldn't wait to gape at its extravagance and beautiful mirrorwork. It previously lost its upper floor in an earthquake, but the lower floor is open

    The 18th century interiors had intricate mirrorwork and were mostly European. The glimmering walls and chandeliers were a sight to see, and each detail of the palace was worth staring at.

    Unbelievably, the palace was built by a sailor named Ramsingh Malam had learnt the European crafts while traveling. He built it for Maharaja Lakhpatji, whose bed had solid gold legs! The palace is truly a marvel in terms of beauty, and had plenty of rooms to check out too

    My last destination was the renowned Great Rann of Kutch, which was a stunning white desert which looked like a snowy ocean. There were kids playing cricket, families on camel ridden carts, and people walking and chatting in that pleasant weather.

    I also tried a camel ride and it was very fun. It is 30,000 sq kms in area, between the Gulf of Kutch and the Indus river Learning about so much and having an opportunity to see such gems made the trip to Kutch worthwhile. I'll be back for all the Mahals and beaches I missed ;D
