It is a region and the base camp of Gir Somnath region in the Indian province of Gujarat. It is 6 km from Somnath. Veraval was established in thirteenth or fourteenth century by Rao Veravalji Vadher, a Rajput. Veraval was at one time a sustained port town of the illustrious group of Junagadh.
It was a piece of the Kingdom of Junagadh till 1947 when Junagadh was converged with India. The city still bears a few leftovers of the old Nawabi legacy, the delightful Nawabi summer royal residence being among them. There are remnants of the old Nawabi stronghold and Nawabi Gates in and around the place.
The old dividers of the port are currently destroyed. Angling here is finished by trawlers, and also by customary water crafts, and Veraval keeps up a boat building industry that still builds and repairs vessels with conventional strategies.
