The Jhala(zala) claim descent from Harpaldev and Shaktidevi. Harpaldev had nineteen sons, one of whom was Manguji (Limbdi) and his son is Karansinhji (Samla).
The princely state of Dhrangadhra was a 13-gun salute state in the 1920s, when it was ruled by members of the Jhala(zala) dynasty. At that time, Jhalas(zalas) also governed in the 11-gun state of Wankaner and in the 9-gun states of Limbdi and Wadhwan, as well as in the non-salute states of Lakhtar, Sayla and Chuda.
