Whether you've been to the peanut city – Bharuch, situated at the mouth of Narmada, Gujarat – or not, you would have certainly gobbled its world-famous peanuts. The city previously known as Broach boasts a glorious history of over 2000 years.
The super-addictive Bharuch peanuts travel far and wide all over the world to reach people who are addicted to it – or make some more fans. Besides this, pickle, papad, khichu, fafda, the local roasted cereal called ponk, and sweets such as jalebi and ghari – are some must-try treats of the place.
The oldest library of Gujarat – Raichand Deepchand Library – built in 1858, also adds charm to this old city. This library boasts a collection of over 200,000 books and possesses some of the oldest and rarest manuscripts.
Megharaj festival is exclusively celebrated here for 25 days in the month of Shravan. This and other festivities are a window to the natives’ passion for dance and music.
Also known as the city of fertilisers, it is home to some primeval temples, caves, and waterfalls – all revealing the affluent depths of its past.
