Amongst the many forests reserves that dot India, Gir National Park is the only one that is home to the majestic Asiatic lion. Situated in the southern reaches of Gujarat, the park covers 1412 sq km. It is home to more than 2000 unique species within its ecosystem, a delight for any avid naturalist!
The beauty of Gir exists not only within its brilliant landscape and stringently enforced seclusion, but also in its perfect proximity to many other places of tourist interest. Here are some of these places that you can see around Gir, promising as much fun and enthrallment as the great forest reserve itself!
- Somnath Temple: One of India’s most iconic temples is the majestic Somnath temple. Made famous by its destruction due to multiple attempts by invading armies, the temple has always managed to bounce back with greater vigour than before. The temple is the cornerstone for believers of Shiva within the state of Gujarat and is proudly used as an example of how India rebuilds itself after every calamity. Its location next to the sea only serves to enhance the natural beauty of the temple.
- Junagadh City: The charming little city of Junagadh and its environs were once part of the princely state of Junagadh, one of the most enlightened within India. The city is a charming throwback to the Raj era with many fine Victorian buildings interspersed with ancient temples and charming gardens. The city boasts of a fine marketplace with excellent handicrafts and tribal art. Junagadh is well served by road and rail, and is a very safe city that is perfect for an outing with the entire family.
- Porbandar: The ancient city of Porbandar remarkably combines the best of ancient ‘Bharat’ with the emergence of modern India. This famed city is the birthplace of Sudama (Lord Krishna’s best friend) as well as the Father of the Nation: Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Porbandar is well connected by air, rail, and road. It has many museums dedicated to Gandhi as well as temples that date back to the Iron Age. The town also boasts of a pleasant and charming coastline of fine sand and an active chowpatty (beachfront) that is ideal for viewing the sunset with family.
While travelling to the Gir Forest Reserve and its environs, it is ideal if you set up base in one of the Gir resorts. Among them, Club Mahindra Gir Resort stands out due to its exceptional location, and its large rooms equipped with modern amenities and conveniences.
