Porbandar Travel Guide

Porbandar, the coastal city in the Indian state of Gujarat, lies on the western coast of Saurashtra, on the seashore between Dwarka and Somnath, where the River Asmavati meets the ocean. The city of Porbandar derives its name from ‘Porai’ and ‘Bandar’, which refers to the harbour of Porai, the local Goddess. Situated at a distance of 412kms from Ahmedabad, Porbandar is best known for being the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi, which is also a reason for the growth in Porbandar’s tourism. Porbandar has evolved as one of the important industrial centres in the state of Gujarat though it still maintains the old city charm.

Porbandar is also acknowledged as the ‘White City’ because of its white stone construction.
