One of the oldest seaports in the western region of the country that has been in operation since 1st century AD, Bharuch is a riverside village. It is here that River Narmada empties itself into the sea. Located around 80 km from Vadodara, Bharuch apparently got its name from the temple here that Sage Bhrigu prayed at. The city has been mentioned in a few Jataka tales and is a sacred pilgrim spot for Jains. Today, it is considered to be one of the busiest industrial belts in the state. Well-connected by road to Vadodara, Bharuch is a treasure trove of heritage and displays Gujarat's culture in a beautiful manner. Some of the major attractions here include the Bharuch Fort, the temple Sage Bhrigu sat in, a Golden Bridge over River Narmada, and the Jama Masjid. Bharuch Fort is located at a hilltop, overlooking the Narmada river with Jama Masjid at its base.
