Gujarat has a long historical and
cultural tradition dating back to the days of
the Indus valley civilization
established by relics found at Lothal.
Situated in the western part of the Indian sub-continent,
Gujarat derives its name from the "Gurjars"
who passed through Punjab and settled in some
parts of Western India.
According to the Hindu epics, Lord Krishna and
his elder brother Balarama, evacuated Mathura
and established their kingdom Kushasthali, now
known as Dwarka and started what is known as the
Yadava dynasty. Dwarka subsequently became one
of the four seats (mathas) set up by Adi Shankaracharya.
The Parsees when they Led from Iran in the eighth
century first landed at Sanjan on the shores of
Gujarat with the holy flame, which still burns
in Udwada in Valsad. The Muslim influence left
its lasting imprints on the local art and architecture
and it came to be known as the Indo-Saracenic
Among the earliest Europeans in Gujarat were the
Portuguese who settled in Diu, a small island
off the southern coast of Saurashtra. After that
came the British who set up warehouses in Surat
Gujarat was a part of the erstwhile Mumbai state
during the British Rule. However, in 1960, the
'Gujarati' population decided to secede from that
union, which resulted in the formation of two
new states, namely Gujarat and Maharashtra. The
new State of Gujarat came into existence on May
Gujarat is the birthplace of many leaders who
played an important role in shaping modern India.
Prominent among them are Shri Dadabhai Navroji,
the grand old man of India's independence struggle,
Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the architect of a united
India and Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the Nation.
These men carried the torch of national freedom
and integration infusing the qualities of tolerance,
brotherhood, non-violence and patriotism amongst
