Spread of the Gujarati language

This smaller map removes the countries where Gujarati is dominant. This map therefore only shows 2.7% of all speakers of Gujarati. The territory omitted is India.

The Gujarati language is centred on the state of Gujarat in western India. Mahatma Gandhi was born in this part of India, and spoke and wrote in Gujarati.

Gujarati is spoken by roughly 48 million speakers in around 18 territories. Outside of India, there are significant numbers of speakers in United Republic of Tanzania, the United States, the United Kingdom, Uganda, Pakistan and Malaysia, and smaller numbers in several countries in southern and eastern Africa.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Gujarati as a first language that live in that territory.
