Bharuch is a city and a municipality in Bharuch district in the state of Gujarat, India. Bharuch was once a small village on the banks of the Narmada River. It was considered to be sacred among sages, and they would come to Bharuch and pray. Bharuch was known in olden days as Bhrigu Kaksha, which means the domanin of Bhrigu, an ancient Indian sage. It was here, on the banks of river Narmada, that the celebrated Asura king Mahabali, conducted a great sacrifice. In this sacrifice, came a Bhrahmin boy named Vamana, who interfered with the king's sacrifice and put an end to his reign. A sage named Guru Shukracharya, in the lineage of Bhrigu, was the priest of king Mahabali.
