Gujarat was often the first port of call for Arab traders in their dhows and later an important commercial centre for the Portuguese, the English and the Dutch. Here they established trading posts with the local rulers, dealing, among other things, with printed cotton and embroideries, for both of which Gujarat is still famous. Many erstwhile rulers have recently transformed their palaces and royal guest-houses into hotels.
