      city, south-central Gujarat (Gujarāt) state, west-central India. It lies on the western shore of the Gulf of Khambhat (Khambhat, Gulf of) (Cambay) of the Arabian Sea. Founded in 1723, it has become an important commercial and industrial centre, with spinning and weaving mills, metalworks, tile and brick factories, sawmills, an iron foundry, and a chemical plant. It is connected with the main Western Railway system and has a port for small vessels to the north. The city is the site of the Gandhi Museum, the Burton Library and Museum, the Takhteshwar Temple Palace, and the Central Salt and Marine Chemical Research Institute.

After Indian independence in 1947, Bhavnagar was merged into the new state of Saurashtra, which now forms part of Gujarat state. The chief agricultural products of the surrounding region are cotton and grains; salt is processed. Pop. (2001) 511,085.
