Morbi or Morvi is a town and a municipality in Morbi district in the Indian state of Gujarat. It is situated on the Kathiawar peninsula. In 2011, the town's population was determined to be 194,947.[1] The city of Morbi is on the Machhu River, 35 km (22 mi) from the sea and 60 km (37 mi) from Rajkot.

Much of the building heritage and town planning is attributed to the administration of Sir Lakhdhiraji Waghji,[citation needed] who ruled Morvi State from 1922 to 1948.
