Rajkot - the princely state of Saurashtra.
"Memoirs of the first visit to the city"
I have travelled a lot in Gujarat, being my native place as I belong to a Gujarathi family.
Located in the heart of Gujarat, the fascinating town of Rajkot was the capital of the princely state of Saurashtra. It was also reputed as a former British government headquarters where Mahatma Gandhi spent early years of his life. A peaceful town some 30-35 years back on the riverbank of Aji, today Rajkot is known as the "Paris of Saurashtra".
I had only one night stay over here, places of interest are Watson Museum and Library, Kaba Gandhi No Delo, and a couple of old schools and colleges of the city.
