Introducing Junagadh

Junagadh, reached by few tourists, is nestled against some of the most impressive topography in Gujarat. It’s an ancient, fortified city with 2300 years of history (its name means ‘old fort’), at the base of holy Girnar Hill. At the time of Partition, the Nawab of Junagadh opted to take his tiny state into Pakistan – a wildly unpopular decision as the inhabitants were predominantly Hindu, so the nawab departed on his own. Junagadh makes a good jumping-off point for seeing the lions at Sasan Gir.
