The Parsi exodus

When Parsis left Persia, they took refuge in Hormuz in the Persian Gulf, and after a few years moved to India, settling in the city of Sanjan. For centuries they lived in this place, learned the Gujarati and were spread by the Indian coast. After a period of Muslim rule that forced them to go into the country, they could return to the coast and settle in cities like Surat, Nansas and Bombay.
