Rajkot Travel Guide

Located on the banks of the Aji and Nyari Rivers, Rajkot is known as the fourth largest city in the state of Gujarat. This old city was once the capital of the princely state of Saurashtra from 1948 to 1956 before merging in bilingual Bombay state on 1956. Rajkot was merged into Gujarat from Bombay on May 1, 1960. The city has been ruled by various rulers since it was founded.

Rajkot is one of the most prominent cities of Gujarat and a major centre for trade and commerce.
