History and culture of Rajkot

Rajkot is the world's fastest growing city and is the fourth largest city in the state of Gujarat.  Rajkot was the capital of the then Saurashtra state from 15th April 1948 to 31st Oct 1956, before merging in the bilingual state of Bombay.  Rajkot was then merged into the Gujarat State from bilingual Bombay state on 1st May 1960. Rajkot has a long history and played a significant part in Indian independence movement. The city is located on the bank of Aji River and Nyari River which remains dry except the monsoon months of July to September.

The British East India Company founded the Saurashtra agency in Jubliee Garden, RajkotRajkot to moderate all princely states. The regional headquarters and residency of this agency was at Kothi Compound. The British constructed many impressive colonial buildings and educational institutions, such as Connaught Hall and The Rajkumar College.

The emblem of the Rajkumar College, Rajkot,  Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, a.k.a. Mahatma Gandhi, spent the early years of his life in Kaba Gandhi No Delo when his father was a Diwan to the king of Rajkot. Gandhi fasted to ask to form a people's council and liberation of people of Rajkot at Rashtriya Shala in March 1939.

After independence Rajkot became capital of the State of Saurashtra, headed by U. N. Dhebar as Chief Minister. Rajkot was merged into the newly-created Gujarat State when it was separated from the bilingual Bombay State on May 1, 1960.
