Gujarat Area



The area of the Indian state of Gujarat is 1,96,024 square kilometers. Gujarat state is demarcated into three distinct areas:
  • Eastern area
  • Central area
  • Western area
The areas can be clearly distinguished from one another- a result of natural geological entropy which is continuing for thousands of years.

The eastern area of Gujarat state comprises the mainland area of the region. The Gulf of Cambay demarcates the eastern mainland area from the flat, predominantly barren central region of Saurashtra. The political area of Saurashtra occupies the geographical location of Kathiawar Peninsula. The Kathiawar Peninsula is demarcated from the western area by the Gulf of Kutch. The western area is known as Kutch.

The geographical area of Gujarat has a low relief in most areas of the state. The area of Gujarat has diverse climactic conditions. Winters are pleasantly cool with a daytime radiant temperatures of 29 degrees centigrade. The temperatures in the night time falls to 12 degrees centigrade. Gujarat winters mean sunny days and clear nights. The summers are extremely hot with daytime summers reaching a peak of 46 degrees centigrade and nights no lower than 34 degrees centigrade.

The area of Gujarat receives its maximum (and much needed) rainfall during the monsoons. The rainwater is utilized for irrigation and other agricultural economic activities.

The central area of Gujarat is predominantly barren with the Gir Lion sanctuary encompassing 1400 square kilometers of dry scrub land. During the monsoons, the western Kutch area becomes an island. The high salinity of the region makes for a totally barren landscape.
