A Day in Mandvi

by Piotr B April. 23, 2020 245 views

Mandvi is a town situated in the west of India in the State of Gujarat. It is known for its shipbuilding industry that dates back four hundred years. Until today, local men construct traditional sailing vessels (dhows) out of massive timbers from Malaysia. All by hand. The dhows are made to order for the well heeled customers from the Arab world.

Indian hustle and bustle make the town a fascinating place to walk around. Enjoy a day in Mandvi.

You got it right, althouth it would be more suitable for rodents or poultry than a pair of giraffes or elephants. Not to mention whales... on second thoughts, the latter would not be worried about the flood anyway 😀.

Hi Benny, Thank you. I like maps very much and I think it is a good idea to show the audience where an odd island or forgotten village are. Enjoy my posts!
