As you stroll along RCC narrow walk way, you enter to the property’s open roof dining area.They serve vegetarian traditional Gujarati/Rajasthani meal accompanied by dim lighting which tickles the clock backwards, an era where entire family sat together, talked together. During my visit, Maharaj made mouth watering Dal Bati, traditional khichdi Kadhi for dinner and Parathas, upma with Masala Chai for breakfast . The lunch comprised of a mix of Punjabi and Gujarati delicacies.

Fortunately the area is devoid of cellular mobile connectivity except BSNL which unintentionally gives a cyber/digital detox . En-cashing this, Mr. Mehta has developed game zone consisting of Pool, Volley ball, badminton just to name a few followed by a tiny exhibition center brandishing craftsmanship of Kutch like Bandhani, embroidery etc. .

The Nights are followed by Cultural Events on a modest Stage built at the frontend of the property comprising of Folk Songs , Folk tales with a lit bonfire in chilly wintry desert nights.

While here, you will be exploring to the soul of Kutchi tradition and warmth of people in cold, arid region of Kutch.
