|"Beyond the [[Gulf of Kutch|gulf of Baraca]] is that of [[Bharuch|Barygaza]] and the coast of the country of Ariaca, which is the beginning of the Kingdom of [[Nahapana|Nambanus]] and of all India. That part of it lying inland and adjoining Scythia is called [[Abiria]], but the coast is called Syrastrene. It is a fertile country, yielding wheat and rice and sesame oil and clarified butter, cotton and the Indian cloths made therefrom, of the coarser sorts. Very many cattle are pastured there, and the men are of great stature and black in color. The metropolis of this country is [[Minnagara]], from which much cotton cloth is brought down to [[Barygaza]].

Sorath was the former name of the Muslim-ruled Princely State of [[Junagadh]] («Junagarh» or the «Old City»). During British rule, Junagadh and its neighboring princely states were supervised by the [[Western India States Agency]] (WISA). In 1947, Junagadh’s Muslim ruler desired to accede his territory to Pakistan, but the predominantly Hindu population rebelled, and while he fled to Pakistan, a plebiscite was conducted as a result of which the kingdom was merged into the Indian Union.
