Brief About Porbandar District
This city is an important port located on the Arabian Sea on the west coast of the Indian subcontinent. It has a population of over 100,000. The town is best known for being the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. In the 10th century it was known as 'Pauravelakul' and then 'Sudamapuri' (After Sudama, friend of Lord Krishna). It is today a tourist centre and is served by an airport and train line. In addition it also has a deep sea port that was built over the last 25 years. The name "Porbandar" came from the combination of two words, i.e., the famous goddess "Porai" and "Bandar" means Port.
