Bharuch, at the mouth of the river Narmada in Gujarat in western India, has been settled since the times of antiquity and was called Bharukaccha. It was a ship-building centre and seaport in the pre-compass coastal trading routes to perhaps as far back as the days of the pharaohs. Many goods from the Far East (the famed Spice and Silk trade) were shipped here making it a terminus for several key land-sea trade routes. Bharuch was known to the Greeks, the various Persian Empires, the Roman Republic and Empire, and other Western centres of civilisation through the end of the European Middle Ages.
