About Bharuch City

Ancient Port City of Gujarat

Bharuch is a district in the southern Gujarat peninsula, on the west coast of India. It has a similar size and population to Greater Boston. It is located at the mouth of the Narmada River, which connects it to the inland regions of India. Bharuch was an ancient and important port city, trading with various civilizations in the West, such as Egypt, Greece, Persia and Rome. It was part of the Spice and Silk routes, and a hub for land-sea commerce. Bharuch’s significance declined with the emergence of deep-sea navigation, as it was not a convenient location for ships that could sail across the oceans.

According to the 2011 census, it has 1,550,822 people living in an area of 238 square KM (620/sq mi), which means a population density of 238 people per square KM.
