If a trip to Rann Utsav 2019-2020 is on the cards, let’s explore the places of interest in Kutch. Around 290 km from the popular Rann Utsav site i.e. Dhordo, the archaeological site at Dholavira offers an insight into the 5000-year recent Indus Valley Civilisation, the palaces of Bhuj house unbelievable art treasures, and millions of fortified villages are worth-visiting for their heritage. The northern and eastern areas of Rann of Kutch comprise a vast white rann called the Great Rann of Kutch, while the southwest is fringed by lovely beaches like Mandvi with soft sands and calm waters. Birds abound at White Rann, lakes and grasslands, while endangered mammals like the wild ass, caracal, wolf and chinkara gazelle can be seen in the Rann and the Banni grassland. Most of all, Rann of Kutch is famous for its rich living heritage of handicrafts – embroideries, bandhani tie-dye, block printings, metal crafts, woodwork, pottery and some rare arts thrive in the district, which makes the festival of Rann Utsav colourful.
