AHMEDABAD, INDIA--(Marketwire - Oct 5, 2012) -  Capitalizing on one of the biggest Ahmedabad attractions, Courtyard by Marriott Ahmedabad has introduced an exciting room package for the festive season in the month of October.

Navratri, literally translating to 'nine nights,' is one of the most popular Hindu festivals across India and the biggest in the state of Gujarat. The hallmark of this nine day festival is garbha, a renowned dance typical of Gujarat, claimed as one of the most important things to do in Ahmedabad. This year, a host of celebrations have been organized by the Gujarat Tourism board in Ahmedabad at various grounds and clubs located near Courtyard by Marriott.
