Panipat of Saurashtra

The Battle of Bhuchar Mori, also known as Battle of Dhrol, was fought between the army of Kathiawar led by Nawanagar State and the Mughal army at Bhuchar Mori plateau near Dhrol, Saurashtra (now in Jamnagar district, Gujarat, India). It was meant to protect Muzaffar Shah III, the last Sultan of Gujarat Sultanate who had taken asylum under Jam Sataji of Nawanagar after his escape from the Mughal emperor Akbar. It was fought in July 1591 (Vikram Samvat 1648). The Kathiawar army included the armies of Junagadh and Kundla who betrayed Nawanagar and joined the Mughal army at last. The battle led to large number of casualty on both sides. The battle resulted in the decisive victory of Mughal army.
It is considered the largest battle in the history of Saurashtra. It is often dubbed as the Panipat of Saurashtra.

Ro-Ro Service @ Saurashtra

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Sunday launch India’s first roll on-roll off (Ro-Ro) ferry services in Gujarat. PM Modi had announced this himself while addressing a huge gathering on October 16. Developed at a cost of around Rs 615-crore, the project has been executed by Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB). The ferry services will dramatically reduce travel time between Saurashtra region in Gujarat with the southern parts of the state. On Friday, PM Modi shared a video providing a glimpse into what he calls his “dream project.”
The Ro-Ro services between Ghogha in Bhavnagar district and Dahej in Bharuchwill will facilitate vehicular and passenger ferry services across the Gulf of Cambay. It will not only reduce the travel time between the two regions, Ro-Ro ferry services will also allow vehicles with passengers aboard.
