Bharuch , Gujarat

Situated in the mouth of the holy river Narmada, Baruch is the oldest city in Gujarat. That quite literally converts to the fact the it is of absolutely incomparable religious and historical significance. A sea port city, a place of regular trade and transactions and the residence of the great Rishi Bhrigu, this is a place which boasts of a great past where some very learned men have been a part of the story that has unfolded in this river city. There is written evidence of its existence about eight thousand years ago telling us of the greatness and the importance of having a city of that stature in a time where the concept of cities was still to be had. It has seen merchants of the early Egyptian ers, The Persian rule, the Roman empire and the medieval European times. It has probably seen it all. Thus standing in one of the sea ports, you are standing on a wealth of history of such magnificence that you will be unable to account for it. This heavily industrialised city of black soil is renowned for its textile mills, chemical plants, long staple cotton, dairy products and much more. Not only is this place important to the Hindus it is surprisingly a holy place for the Jains and the Buddhist. This proves that age is the best factor in blurring the harsh lines of religion. The land which has probably seen more than any land in the world, it holds many proofs of the past in its very soil. The buildings and the surrounding is only an extention of the very past. Baruch is definitely a city to watch out for.
