Mandvi is also a major fishing port. Mandvi was the capital of Cutch State from 16th to 18th century and it was ruled by Jadeja Rajputs. The city had been attacked by Portuguese, Mughals and Marathas but never fell into their hands. It remained under the control of Jadeja rulers until 1948 when India became independent from British rule, after which it came under Bombay state (present day Gujarat). Mandvi played an important role in India's freedom struggle as well as in Kutch's history because Mahatma Gandhi started his first Satyagraha movement here against Indigo planters who were exploiting farmers during British rule. In 1960, when Bombay state split into two states of Maharashtra and Gujarat respectively; Mandvigarh became part of newly formed Gujarat state along with rest parts if Kutch district including Bhuj which is now its administrative headquarters.
