"There was a time when people, especially those from North India, did not like Gujarati food because they thought it is too sweet. They used to say you put sugar even in bitter gourd. Now everyone asks where do we get good Gujarati food," he further said.

Rupani said that this is the "first eco-friendly" state bhawan in the national capital. It cost Rs 131 crore and was completed three months ahead of the deadline, he added.

The bhawan has been described a mix of traditional and mordern architecture with a rich reflection of the western state's culture.
