Muli is a town located 21 km (13 mi) southwest of the district capital of Surendranagar, Gujarat, India, by the Bhogavo River.[3] It has a population of greater than 20,000 people.


Muli may refer to the city or to the Indian Princely state of the same name. The Princely State of Muli had an area of 133 square miles (340 km2) and contained nineteen villages in addition to Muli city. The Parmars came to this area from Tharparkar District, now in Pakistan. The Parmars Lakh Dirji named it after a milkmaid who used to deliver milk to Lakh Dirji. The town is famous for the battle fought between the Chabhad and the Parmars for a wounded partridge.[4] Chabhhads were wanted possession of the partridge while Parmars were wanted to provide shelter to wounded partridge, then it was a big battle between Parmars and Chabhads, this war having historical importance because 140 Parmars got victory against 500 chabhads of Sayla The Parmars, while victorious, were sacked by an army from Sindh Province for providing shelter to some outcasts.

There is a temple of Almighty Sun called "Mandavrayji Mandir," which is also the spiritual center and "Kuldev" of Parmar Rajputs. It is said that one of the Parmar King Sachoji was a big donor and worshiper of Mandavrayji. He has a rule of giving any thing which is asked to him. Once he was alleged to have been asked to give a lion alive, with the help of Mandavrayji, he was able to fulfill this promise. Till today, this fact remained as a popular folklore in Muli village.
