INFORMATION ABOUT BHAVNAGAR

BHAVNAGAR HISTORY

In 1822-1823 AD, Sihor was raided by Khanthaji Kadani and Pilaji Gaekwad, but they were repulsed by chief Bhanvsinhji Gohil. But due to great loss in the battle, he realized the weakness in location of Sihor. In 1823 AD, he finally established the new capital near Vadva village, 20 km away from Sihor, and named it Bhavnagar. It was a carefully chosen strategic location having potential of maritime trade. Naturally, Bhavnagar became the capital of Bhavnagar State.
