|English: Victory To Valiant Gujarat|
State song of Gujarat
|Lyrics||Narmadashankar Dave, 1873|
"Jai Jai Garavi Gujarat" (Gujarati: જય જય ગરવી ગુજરાત) is a poem written by Gujarati poet Narmadashankar Dave, better known as Narmad in 1873. It is used as a state song during ceremonies of the Government of Gujarat. 
In this poem, Narmad epitomises the sense of pride in the region by identifying the region of Gujarati-speaking people. He delineates the boundary within which Gujarati-speaking population live; Ambaji in the north; Pavagadh in the east; Kunteshwar Mahadev near Vapi in the south; and Somnath, Dwarka in the west. This region mentioned by him now forms modern-day Gujarat, the western state of India. At the end of the poem, Narmad gives hope to the people of Gujarat that the dark clouds is lifting, and a new dawn is about to emerge.
In 2011, the composition sung by various Gujarati singers was released by Government of Gujarat.
Lyrics are as following:
|જય જય ગરવી ગુજરાત (in Gujarati)||Victory To Valiant Gujarat (In English)|
જય જય ગરવી ગુજરાત! જય જય ગરવી ગુજરાત,
Victory to valiant Gujarat!
Thy scarlet flag marked with love and valour will shine;
In north, Goddess Amba [is situated],
Have seen rivers Narmada, Tapi, Mahi and others.
That past glory of [ancient capital] Anhilwad and [king] Siddharaj Jaisinh.
