Dhoraji



The large and flourishing town Dhoraji is located on the banks of small river Safura, a branch of the river Bhadar. The town was fortified in 1755 AD. This massive fort has 4 main gates and 3 small gates. The four main gates are Kathiawadi Darwaja in the east, Porbandar Gate in the west, Halar Gate in the north and Junagadh Gate in the south. The Darbargadh is one the main attractions. Sir Bhagwatsinhiji, famous ruler of Gondal, was born at Dhoraji Darbargadh. The temple of Goddess Ashapura is near Darbargadh. This place is a fine example of urban planning of an Indian town during the British Raj.
