Surat, the capital of South Gujarat, was India's most prosperous port and ancient trading centres in the 17th and 18th centuries. Located on the southern bank of Tapti, Surat is renowned for its fine silk and exquisite brocades like the Tanchoi, Gajee and Kinkhab styles sometimes woven with gold and silver threads. It is also famous for spices and its diamond market as well as ivory and wood artwork of rare beauty.

Dandi
Dandi - Salt Centre
Situated on the coastline and well known as a salt centre, Dandi has acquired a name in history after the famous Dandi March Salt Satyagraha launched by Gandhiji in March, 1930 A.D. While overtly the Dandi march purported to protest against the hateful Salt Tax levied by the British, the underlying purpose was to kindle the spark of Civil Disobedience and thereby attain independence. On a warm April morning in 1930 Gandhi and his 78 Satyagrahis marched 241 miles to Dandi and formally breached the Salt Law an act that would go down in the annals of history as the first salvo to be fired against the British Empire.
