Bhuj

Legendary heroism and romance lend enchantment to Kachchh, the land of great antiquity forming the northwestern part of Gujarat. The most important place in the area is the walled town of Bhuj, picturesquely placed between two streams. Kachchh is famous the world over for its sturdy horses and cows as also for wide variety of its handicrafts. Bandhini (tie-and-dyes) and hand-printed saris, embroidery and needle work, exquisite gold and silver ornaments known as Kachchhi work, gilding and enamelling are some of its traditional crafts. Nutcrackers, scissors and penknives are metalware specialities of Kachchh.
