Culture and History of Durban

Durban, formerly Port Natal, the largest city of KwaZulu-Natal province and chief seaport of South Africa is located on Natal Bay of the Indian Ocean. European settlement began with a band of Cape Colony traders led by Francis G. Farewell, who charted the port in 1824 and named the site Port Natal. The land was ceded to the group by Shaka, the Zulu king (whose right to take that action is disputed), and the Old Fort (now a museum) was built. Durban was founded in 1835 on the site of Port Natal and was named for Sir Benjamin D’Urban, the governor of the Cape Colony. In the late 1830s and early ’40s the Boers clashed with the British over control of Durban. It became a borough (town) in 1854 and was made into a city in 1935.

With British colony came, many Indians were brought here for cheap labour. Durban now as the largest Indian population outside India.
