About The Place Madhavpur

Madhavpur (Ghed) is a small but culturally significant village in state of Gujarat. It lies on the seashore, close to Porbandar, birthplace of Gandhi.

According to folklore, lord krishna came to this village after kidnapping Rukmini and got married to her at this very place. In the memory of that event, there is a temple built for lord Madhavray. A celebration of this event is held at Madhavpur in memory of this marriage every year in a cultural fair.

Madhavpur also has one of the meditation centers of Osho

Recently a joint amphibious exercise Tropex-09 by the Indian Army, Navy, Air Force and the Coast Guard was conducted on February 09, at Madhavpur beach
