The Chavda dynasty (Chawda, Chavada, Chapa, Chaparana, Chapokata) was a HinduKshatriya family line that ruled northern Gujarat from 746 to 942. The members seem to have been one of the ruling clans of the Gurjars.
There were five Chavda kings after Vanraj. The last king Samantsinh Chavda did not have any children so he adopted his nephew Mulraj Solanki who overthrew him in 942 and set up what came to be known as the Solanki dynasty.
