About Karjan

Karjan

Karjan, also referred as Miyagam Karjan, is located in the southern part of Vadodora District in the state of Gujarat. It is the headquarters of a taluka of the same name and is considered to be one of most important towns in the district. This small town with little more than one lakh population is also home to number of big industries.

Geography of Karjan

The geographical coordinate of Karjan town is 22.0530° North lattitude and 73.1235° East longitude. It is situated at a distance of 35.6 km from district headquarters Vadodara on National Highway 8. Ahmedabad, the financial capital of the state is 148.4 km away. 

NH 8, GJ SH 160 and GJ SH 161 are the three most important roads running through the town while  Nava Bazaar and Juna Bazaar are the two most important localities.. Karjan Lake is a prominent water body here.
 
The land in and around the town is homogeneously flat with deep black, clayey and calcareous soil.  There is no major river in this area and consequently one has to depend mainly on rain water for irrigation. However, because of high moisture retaining capacity of the soil, rabi crops can be grown without irrigation if the area has normal rain during the monsoon.

Climatic Condition in Karjan

Because of southwest monsoon, Karjan generally has good rainfall from June to October.  While the average annual rainfall is 1107.8 mm, 1086.1 mm of it falls during the monsoon season only. This is 98.4% of the total yearly rainfall.
