Nadabet, which is only 4 kilometres from White Rann, will receive a Tent City similar to those in Dhordo, Kutch, and the Statue of Unity. Gujarat’s first Indo-Pak border viewing point is Nadabet in Banaskantha.
The state has already identified land in Nadabet for the Tent City, which will be ready in six months. Nadabet, India’s newest border destination, was opened to the public in April 2022 on the line of the Wagah Border and attracts visitors from outside Gujarati.
However, it lacks accommodations and is located quite far from major cities. Because the parade function, one of the main attractions, is held in the evening, visitors are often unable to visit during the day.
The proposed Tent City will be built 10 kilometres from Zero Point and will provide accomodation in natural settings.
According to Secretary Tourism Hareet Shukla, Nadabet receives 2,000 visitors per day on average, and this figure is expected to rise once accommodation facilities are built.
The Tent City will have 60 tents and can expand based on demand. According to Shukla, the daily rate for each tent will be comparable to other Tent Cities.
The Nadabet allows visitors to see the inner workings of an army post on India’s border.
Visitors can also see the Border Security Force’s (BSF) retreat ceremony, as well as weapons, a photo gallery, tanks, and other sophisticated devices.
The state government is negotiating with the BSF to make the Nadabet beating retreat ceremony as exciting, appealing, and patriotic as the one at Wagah Border. Gujarat has also requested that Pakistani soldiers on the other side of the border perform a retreat ceremony in order to attract a large number of visitors.
