Being the capital of Junagadh Princely State once, Junagarh town shines with historical significance with many historical monuments to see. Junagadh literally means "Old Fort". During the period just before the independence, and partition of India and Pakistan in 1947, the 562 princely states that had existed outside British India, but under British suzerainty, were given the choice of acceding to either India or Pakistan, or to remaining apart. On 15 Sep 1947, Nawab Mohammad Mahabat Khanji III of Junagadh – which, although located at the south-western end of Gujarat, had no common border with Pakistan – chose to accede to Pakistan. The rulers of two states that were subject to the suzerainty of Junagadh — Mangrol and Babariawad, reacted by declaring their independence from Junagadh and acceding to India. India sent troops to the frontier and occupied the principalities of Mangrol and Babariawad, which had acceded to India. On 26 October, the nawab and his family fled to Pakistan following clashes between Junagadhi and Indian troops. On 7 November, Junagadh's court, facing collapse, invited the government of India to take over the state's administration.

Junagadh is also very close to the Girnar Hills and the world-renowned Gir National Park.
