Gogo

GOGO, or GOGHA, a town of India in Ahmedabad district, Bombay, 193 m. N.W. of Bombay. Pop. (1901) 4798. About J m. east of the town is an excellent anchorage, in some measure sheltered by the island of Piram, which lies still farther east. The natives of this place are reckoned the best sailors in India; and ships touching here may procure water and supplies, or repair damages. The anchorage is a safe refuge during the south-west monsoon, the bottom being a bed of mud and the water always smooth. Gogo has lost its commercial importance and has steadily declined in population arid trade since the time of the American Civil War, when it was an important cottonmart.
