History & Cultures


Gujarat has a long historical and cultural tradition dating back to the days of the Indus valley civilization  established by relics found at Lothal.
Situated in the western part of the Indian sub-continent, Gujarat derives its name from the "Gurjars" who passed  through Punjab and settLed in some parts of Western India.

According to the Hindu epics, Lord Krishna and his elder brother Balarama, evacuated Mathura and established their kingdom Kushasthali, now known as Dwarka and started what is known as the Yadava dynasty. Dwarka subsequently became one of the four seats (mathas) set up by Adi Shankaracharya.

The Parsees when they fLed from Iran in the eighth century first landed at Sanjan on the shores of Gujarat with the holy flame, which still burns in Udwada in Valsad. The Muslim influence left its lasting imprints on the local art and architecture and it came to be known as the Indo-Saracenic style.

Among the earliest Europeans in Gujarat were the Portuguese who settled in Diu, a small island off the southern coast of Saurashtra. After that came the British who set up warehouses in Surat in 1612.
Gujarat was a part of the erstwhile Mumbai state during the British Rule. However, in 1960, the 'Gujarati'  population decided to secede from that union, which resulted in the formation of two new states, namely Gujarat and Maharashtra. The new State of Gujarat came into existence on May 01, 1960.

Gujarat is the birthplace of many leaders who played an important role in shaping modern India. Prominent  among them are Shri Dadabhai Navroji, the grand old man of India's independence struggle, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the architect of a united India and Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the Nation. These men carried the torch of national freedom and integration infusing the qualities of tolerance, brotherhood, non-violence and patriotism amongst Indians.

Gujarat has been a field of conquering races, which settled down here from time to time. From ancient times western gateway of India has been a place where lot of action, reaction and interaction between various ethnic and linguistic forces has taken place, which in turn resulted in the synthesis of many races and culture. Different races brought with them different political institutions, unique social customs, varied cultures and creeds.

The Aryans came by land, Persians, Arabs and Africans came by sea through Saurashtra ports for shelter, trade and at times, conquest. Then just before and after Chinese era, lords of Kunanas, Hunas and other tribes descended on Gujarat. The coming of these foreigners resulted in the fusion of various cultures and traditions.

The cultural diversity of Gujarat

The people of Kachha, a low and arid region with less than 15 inches of annual rainfall are hardy and endowed with a rare spirit of enterprise and a wonderful gift for business organization.
The people of peninsular Saurashtra are artistic and have a wealth of romantic and devotional literature.
The people of North Gujarat are simple, sober and more practical in their outlook.

In contrast, the people of Southern Gujarat are soft, pleasure loving, sophisticated and vivacious in their outlook.
The population of the highlands and the borderlands is wholly tribal but hardy and simple
