1. Great Rann of Kutch-

Dwaraka is a city in the Northwestern region of Gujarat that was once believed to be the birthplace of Lord Krishna. It is because of this; this place is known as a pilgrimage site and is most- frequently visited by many Hindus. Fact says that the city that was once ruled by Lord Krishna was found underwater. But, this to be a myth or a reality is still unknown. The Dwara temple owns a carved entrance with the black stone idol of Lord Krishna. There is also a lighthouse here known as Dwaraka Lighthouse that is known to offer a great view of the giant Arabian Sea.
