Jamnagar – Jewel of Kathiawar, is located along the Gulf of Kutch coast in Gujarat. This beautiful city is dotted with ornamental, old buildings and vibrant bazaars. One of the most famous souvenirs from this region is its brilliantly-coloured bandhani (tie-dye) – crafted painstakingly through a 500-year-old process of making thousands of tiny knots on a piece of folded fabric. Another notable feature of this region is the Jamnagar famous food. People here just love to eat! With plenty of food joints scattered everywhere, one can indulge in some delicious bites from a hawker, with fabulous snacks displayed on his larry or a small streetside shop.
According to legend, this city has a deep connection with Lord Krishna – who migrated from Mathura and established his kingdom at Dwarka. The indigenous inhabitants thereby associate their origins to Krishna's Yadav clan.
The entire architecture of Jamnagar is laid out according to a western model – drawing inspirations from Europe. It houses the world’s biggest oil refinery – owned by Reliance Petroleum – in the western part of the city. The area is also a good spot for paying a visit to a nearby bird sanctuary and marine national park.
