Surat

Surat (72.848E 21.169N) is a port and rail head in western India, about 160 miles (260 km) north of Bombay. The port was an important waypoint for pilgrims to Mecca in Mughal times, was the location of a battle between English and Portuguese naval forces in 1612, and was one of the first English footholds in India. However, the port was later overshadowed by Bombay.
