8 Mesmerising Places To Stay During Rann Utsav 2023 And Enjoy The Cultural Extravaganza

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to be swept away by the cultural extravaganza of the year! It’s time to mark your calendars, for on November 10, 2023, the eagerly awaited Rann Utsav—The Tent City—will burst into life. This year’s edition promises to be an even grander celebration, boasting over 400 luxurious tents that will open their flaps to welcome around 500,000 guests throughout the Rann Utsav festivities. But what’s truly fascinating is that the honourable Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, himself has cast a spell of allure on this cultural spectacle. 

Unveiling The Grandeur Of Rann Utsav

PM Narendra Modi is a staunch advocate of Rann Utsav’s cultural splendour and the breathtaking beauty of Dhordo village. And he doesn’t just talk the talk; he’s shared captivating photos and videos on his social media platform, X (formerly known as Twitter), showcasing the mesmerising allure of the White Rann. 

He’s got high hopes for the village, envisioning it as a beacon that will continue to shine and attract visitors from across the globe. His words emphasise the vast potential of Indian tourism and the incredible contributions of the local community. The Tent City is not just a celebration of culture; it’s a collaborative masterpiece. With the support of Gujarat Tourism and the dedicated Dhordo villagers, Evoke Experiences is excited to pave the way for the region’s progress.
