Cambay, or Kambay, a town of India and capital of the state of Cambay, is situated at the head of the Gulf of Cambay. Formerly it was a flourishing port, but the difficulties in the way of navigation have led to its decay. Its chief exports are agate, cornelian, and onyx ornaments. The state, which is in Guzerat, covers an area of about 350 square miles. The gulf is shallow, and stretches inwards for about 80 miles. Its tides run as high as 30 feet, leaving the bottom almost dry at low water.
