Rozi Island

Rozi Island is situated in the Gulf of Kutch. It houses INS Valsura, one of the oldest establishments of the Indian Navy. This was commissioned in 1942 by Colonel Digvijay Singhji, the Jamsaheb of Nawanagar, as a torpedo training school to counter the treat created by the German U-boats during World War II.

Rozi Island lies about 5 km from Jamnagar, a coastal town in Gujarat.
