Geography

Songadh is located at . It has an average elevation of 112 metres (367 feet).

The town is located at the foot of a solitary mountain which can be seen from miles round, particularly as the surrounding area has been almost completely flattened by local stone quarries. Due to these stone quarries, Songadh has very good road links to the city of Surat to its west and the state of Maharastramarker to its east.

The main town of Songadh is split into two parts; Junagam (old town) and Navagam (new town). Due to rapid expansion of the town in recent times, Navagam has outgrown the original Junagam and is characterised by the hustle and bustle of the Main Road almost any time of the day. This is largely due to the Bus Terminal which acts as a hub for cross country buses which are en route to the city of Suratmarker. This passing traffic has bought much trade into Songadh as it is the first town as you enter Gujarat from the East (or the last before you leave from the West).

To the west of Songadh is the district capital of Vyaramarker which has a slightly smaller population but substantialy more industry. Vyaramarker has grown faster than Songadh due to the higher work ethic of the Vyaramarker population in comparison to the younger population of Songadh. This is in part due to the practice of intermarrying of cousins in Songadh.
