The same as modern Broach; a Gujrati port town in the Gulf of Cambay. It was annexed to the Delhi sultanate after the conquest of Gujarat by 'Ala al-Din Khalji in 1297. In 1344, the governor of Bharuch, 'Alim ul-Mulk Nizam al-Din, was entrusted with the command of Daulatabad by Muhammad bin Tughlaq (1325-1351) with the instructions to bring the disgruntled military officers (amiran-i sada) of that place to Bharuch under guard. These officers mutinied and arrested 'Alim ul-Mulk, sparking a general revolt. Bharuch became a hotbed of this revolt in Gujarat.
