About Bhavnagar

Bhavnagar lies in the Saurashtra region of the Indian state of Gujarat.  It is the administrative headquarters of the Bhavnagar district. Bhavnagar is the fifth largest district in Gujarat. The city is only 198 Kilometers away from the state capital- Gandhinagar. Bhavnagar is considered as a holy city for Jains as there are several Jain temples situated in the city.


Gohil Rajputs native of Rajasthan countered severe opposition in Marwar and moved to the coast of Gujarat establishing Ranpur, Sihor, and Umrala as their bases in 1260. In 1722 Sihor faced several attacks from the armies of Pilaji Gaekwad and Khanthaji Kadani. These battles forced Bhavsinhji Gohil to shift his capital from Sihor to Vadva which was renamed as Bhavnagar. Bhavnagar, after this, became a major economic hub due to its high involvement in the maritime trade.  The city enjoyed the status of British protectorate from 1807 till 1947. After 1947 it became part of the Indian union on the insistence of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
