Located in the western part of India, Gujarat is a coastal state with having more than 1600 km coastline. It shares its boundary with Rajasthan in north, Madhya Pradesh in the east, Maharashtra in south and it shares its international boundary with Pakistan in north-west. However, in the western region, Arabian Sea lies. Though, the largest city and commercial centre of the state is Ahmedabad but the capital city is Gandhinagar; a city which is specially planned to make the capital city of Gujarat.

Interestingly, the historic state Gujarat has been remaining pretty important state since ancient time; some of the important sites of ancient Indus Valley Civilization including ‘Lothal’ and ‘Dholavira’ are located in the state. Archaeologists say – Lothal is probably one of the first ports of the world. Furthermore, Bharuch and Khambhat two other significant ports remained pretty important from the time of Maurya and Gupta empires to Medieval and modern era. Our Rashtrapita (National Father) Mahatma Gandhi born in Gujarat; Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and Muhammad Ali Jinnah were also born in Gujarat. So, not only because of its historical importance and geographical location but also because of birth space of such kind of international leaders, Gujarat has been playing very significant role for the development of the country. Today, Gujarat is one of the most industrialized states of India.
