The fortified city of Junagadh is one of the most frequented spots in Gujarat. Lying at the foothills of Mount Girnar, the references of this ancient city can be traced back to the reign of Asoka. The 14 rock edifice outside the city wall bears evidence of it. It was a seat of the Mauryan and the Gupta dynasty and later on passed on to the Chudasama Rajputs, who ruled here from the 9th to the 15th century, until in the Middle ages, the Islamic rulers took over.
