“Rajkot the heart of Saurashtra”
Reviewed May 10, 2009

Rajkot by itself is not a great holiday destinaton. My husband had to go there on work and I went with him for a whirlwind tour of Dwaraka, Porbander and a couple of days in Rajkot where Gandhi had lived as a school student. We chose Hotel Harmony for economy and convenient location. It was winter time and we didn't mind legging it around the city to drink in the pleasures like Race Course parks and athletic tracks (ideal for a morning walk), the kite festival and the Gandhi home. The hotel serves good food but if you want authentic Gujarati/Kathiawadi cuisine, I recommend you walk around and try those small clean eateries serving local flavour.
