about bhavnagar

Part of the princely Bhavnagar State before it was merged with the Indian Union, Bhavnagar was founded by Bhavsinhji Gohil. During that era, the city was a flourishing hub for maritime trade. The city is a famous Jain pilgrimage centre as there are Palitana Jain temples in the city. From golden beaches to pristine lakes, from forests to parks -- there is a lot to explore in Bhavnagar. There is a wildlife sanctuary -- Velavadar National Park -- in close proximity to the city. The place is a haven for endangered species of wolves, blackbucks and antelopes. The city enjoys a prime location in the lap of nature and is blessed by many wonderful sights. Piram Island, which lies 7.2 nautical miles away from Ghogha district in Bhavnagar is a beautiful, privately owned island. Except for the campus of the lighthouse, everything is a part of a private property.


Culturally, the city has contributed immensely to the country’s arts and culture. Many noted theatre personalities, journalists, poets, educationists and singers have come from the rich and diverse land of Bhavnagar. Bhavnagar could be described as a city of temples, with several beautiful shrines spread all across the city.
