Rann Utsav-The Tent City is a celebration of India’s geographical marvel. The desert that once remained untouched, unvisited and unexplored has now welcomed more than 5 Lakh visitors from more than 20 countries. The question is what do they do coming here? Let’s find out.
The call of the Rann!
Rann Utsav-The Tent City is an artificial cultural city built every year during the winters. This festival houses more than 350 tent accommodations spread across the entire property in clusters. The highlight and attraction remain the White Desert of Rann which is created by the backwaters of the Arabian Sea. It is advisable to take good care since the heart is likely to skip a beat in awe of its beauty.

The play of the Moon
Here’s an indulgence for you to dive into. The celestial view of the Full Moon awaits to touch the visitor on a Purnima night. The huge bright moon when it reflects its light, the white desert glows in a surreal fashion, resulting in one of the most promising sites of the White Desert. The same goes for the Dark Moon experience where the absence of the moon does the magic. The pitch-black sky is decorated with more than a million stars and here’s yet another incredible wonder.
The spirit of Gujarat
The stage at Rann Utsav-The Tent City is pumped up with the spirit of Gujarat. Your welcome itself begins with the Ektara and Dhol. The Siddi community performs their best displaying the legacy of the community that migrated years ago from Africa. Though they belong to a foreign land, they exhibit a perfect blend of both, their roots of yesterday and their culture of today.
Rogan Art, exclusive to Nirona village, is a rare cloth art dating back to over 400 years. Only one family in the entire world is practising this art with expertise. Nirona is also a home to Lacquer wood work.

Two significant places to visit are Vijay Vilas Palace and Shyamji Krishna Varma Memorial. In one resides the rich history of Kutch and in the other, the stories of courage and bravery.
