Sankheda is located on the banks of the Orsang River. It is located 55 km away from Vadodara. The neighboring towns are Dabhoi (21 km), Bodeli (21 km), and Waghodia (27 km).
Development of this town comes from a huge contribution made by Dr. Jethalal K. Parikh, who worked really hard to provide good education and employment to the local community. There are schools and hospitals named after his wife. The local community appreciates his efforts to develop the town. A road was named after him, and there is a statue of him at the entrance to the town.
Shri Bhikhubhai Shah, who was a freedom fighter and a lawyer, donated agricultural land in the "Bhumidan Movement" by Vinoba Bhave.
