Gujarat is the land of great contrasts, stretching from the salt deserts of the Kutch district in the northwest, across scrublands of Saurashtra Peninsula rising from the coasts to rolling hills in the center, where the state reaches its highest elevation, at 3,665 feet (1,117 meters), in the Girnar Hills. To the east of Saurashtra, small plains and hills, tribal areas of Panchamahal in the north merge with fertile farmlands in the south. The richness of the central and southern Gujarat is attributable to Sabarmati, Mahi, Vatrak, Vishwamitri, Narmada, and Tapti (Tapi) rivers to name a few.

Gujarat is a land of the Entrepreneurs and Patriots, Unity and Peace, Saints and Sacrifices and a Pious Land Somnath, Dwarka, Pavagagh, Palitana, Dakor and countless other places where people get inspired to live a better life.
