Bhadar River is a river in the Saurashtra peninsula, in the Western Indian state of Gujarat. It flows south from its origin through Jasdan, then turns south-west and generally west until it empties into the Arabian Sea near Porbandar.[2] The total catchment area of the basin is 7,094 square kilometres (2,739 sq mi).[3]
