Referred to as one of Gujarat's major industrial cities, Surat is known as the city of diamonds. Astoundingly, around 90% of the whole world's diamond cutting and polishing happens here. An industry that contributes to about 90% of India's total diamond export. Aside from that, Surat is home to the largest number of man-made fabric manufacturers in the country.
The city is also a cultural center, hosting several evens and traditional festivals every year. Occasions such as the Kite festival in January and Chandi Pavo in October are one of the main tourist attractions, because of which visitors from all over India pay a visit. There's even a holy connect to the city of Surat, as it is mentioned in the Hindu Epic Mahabharata, that Lord Krishna spend some days here on his journey from Dwarka to Mathura.
The vibrant city attracts all types of visitors throughout the year, so much that a heavy rush is expected from time to time. However, the infrastructure and accommodation facilities are so well planned, they can pretty much cater to most of the needs. The Surat Railway station is only second to the Mumbai Railway station in terms of earning on the Western Railways. This figure alone shows how many commuters are depending on it every day. Falling on the Ahmadabad-Vadodara-Mumbai route, the station is a stoppage for many superfast expresses and major trains.
