Bhavnagar Travel Guide

Bhavnagar, in the Indian state of Gujarat, is a port city on the coastal region of the Saurashtra peninsula abutting the picturesque Gulf of Cambay. Bhavnagar is primarily a business town, close to Alang which is the biggest ship breaking yard in South Asia. People coming in for business in Alang make Bhavnagar their base as all the offices are situated here.

The main places of interest for a tourist in Bhavnagar are the markets in the old city, alive and full of character, with overhanging wooden balconies and sections reserved for specific trades such as the cloth bazaar, the silver bazaar and so on.

Bhavnagar is the gateway town to Alang which is the biggest shipbreaking yard in Asia. Make a visit to Alang if you can just to see how huge ships are broken down and each and every part is sold as scrap!
