Discover Rajkot

Around the coastal region of the Saurashtra Peninsula are some of India's most remarkable religious sites, from Dwarka in the west to Palitana in the east, while the coastline itself is fringed with some attractive beaches and the former Portuguese territory of Diu. The historic town of Junagadh and wildlife parks also draw visitors. Northern Saurashtra, with Rajkot at its centre, is one of the major groundnut growing regions of India.

Rajkot is a bustling commercial city with a large number of shopping complexes and heavy traffic. There has been rapid industrialization recently, based especially in the processing of agricultural products.

The British impact can be seen in the impressive Rajkumar College, a famous public school founded in 1870 set in vast grounds, and the richly endowed Watson Museum, with exhibits from the Indus Valley civilization, medieval sculpture, pottery and crafts, and colonial memorabilia. Gandhi Smriti (Kaba Gandhino Delo), the early home of Mohandas K Gandhi, is in Ghee Kanta Road. The Gandhi Museum in the Gandhi family home (1880), contains photographs and personal effects. Rashtriya Shala is where Mahatma Gandhi went to school and promotes one of his greatest ideals: handloom and handicrafts. The Alfred High School (also known as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi High School) in Rajkot is one of the oldest institutions in India today. Gandhiji took his primary education in this school. The Rotary Dolls Museum located in the city of Rajkot, gives an overview to the culture and traditions of the world at large through a medium of dolls. The Swaminarayan temple was built in 1998-99 by Swaminarayan Sampradaya. It boasts of one of the largest auditorium in the state, having a capacity of thousands.
