Ancient coastal transportation system along the Western Saurashtra coast: Evidence from Navibandar
MetadataShow full item record
A recent maritime archaeological exploration around Navibandar, Gujarat yielded evidence of ferry/jetty points. These points were well connected with the stone-paved roads. Interestingly, the roads have evidence of the use of bullock carts. Navibandar is situated on the eastern bank of the River Bhadar which joins the Arabian Sea about half a kilometre west of the village. The evidence recorded suggests that Navibandar played an auxiliary role to Porbandar port in maritime activities during the medieval period.
