Discover Surat

Situated on the south bank of the Tapi River, Surat has always attracted traders and merchants from afar. Its finely carved temples, mosques, Parsi agiaris, European tombs, and colonial houses all testify to the eclectic mix of ethnic communities that continue to live in the city. Surat is the first major city en route to Gujarat from Mumbai and makes a good base to explore southern Gujarat. Surat was once renowned for its silk weaving and brocade. The city still thrives as a textile center, mainly for its polyester fabrics. As the Textile industries declined in Ahmadabad and Mumbai in the 1970s, Surat became one of Gujarat's fastest-growing cities and gave rise to several small-scale industries. Surat is ranked 4th fastest growing city in the world with a GDP rate of 11.5%.
Surat is India’s 8th and Gujarat’s 2nd largest city with a population of 4.5 million.
