Gogunda is a small town and tehsil headquarters located about 35 km in north-west from Udaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is situated on a high mountain in Aravalli hills and is reached by crossing a difficult mountain pass.
Gogunda was the capital of Mewar for some years, when Udai Singh shifted his base here and left Chittor for safety purpose. Udai Singh also died at Gogunda in 1572 and Maharana Pratap's Raj Tilak (coronation) was performed here.
In past centuries and during British Raj, the village of Gogunda was the seat of a feudal estate administered by a family belonging to the Jhala clan of Rajputs. The estate was part of the princely state of Mewar, and the family were among the major landed barons of that principality. It comprised 75 villages, encompassing a population, in 1901, of 7,708 and a revenue of Rs.24,000/-.
