History of Rajkot[edit]

Rajkot State was one of the princely states of India during the period of the British Raj. It was a 9 gun salute state belonging to the Kathiawar Agency of the Bombay Presidency.[1] Its capital was in Rajkot, located on the banks of the Aji River, nowadays the fourth largest city of Gujarat state.

Foundation and Early period

Rajkot was founded by Thakur Sahib Vibhoji Ajoji Jadeja of the Rajput Jadeja clan in 1620. He was the grandson of Jam Shri Satarsal (Sataji) Vibhaji Jadeja of Nawanagar.

The region was part of the Ghaznavid Empire ruled by Mohammad Ghaznavi and Muzaffarid dynasty ruled by Mahmud Begada before the Jadeja settlement. The Jadeja of Nawanagar lost the battle of Bhuchar Mori in c. 1590 CE against Mughal Empire. Thakur Sahib Vibhoji Ajoji Jadeja was sent to Delhi as prisoner after the death of his father at the battle. He was placed under the guardianship of Jodhaji Soda, who was his maternal uncle from one of Akbar's wives. He joined the Imperial forces and supported Shah Jahan in expelling the Vaghelas from Sardhar. Thereafter he married the daughter of the Vaghela chief and made Sardhar his capital. He received Ardoi, Rib, Ribda and Kalipat, which he converted into a separate principality for his services to the Emperor. His son continued in the Imperial service, receiving further lands in reward. Rajkot was named after Raju Sandhi in 1620, who was co-founder of the princely state of Rajkot with Thakur Sahib Vibhoji Ajoji Jadeja.

Thakur Sahib Vibhoji Ajoji was succeeded by Thakur Sahib Mehramanji I Vibhoji, who helped in the suppression of the Kathi tribes with Imperial forces of Mughal Empire. He was rewarded by Azam Khan, the Subedar of Gujarat with expanded boarders of Rajkot state. Thakur Sahib Bamanioji Sahibji and his son Thakur Sahib Mehramanji II Bamanio were brave and skillful soldiers. They seized Rajkot and a number of villages from the Nawab of Junagadh and consolidated their control over Rajkot and its surrounding villages until 1720.

Places to Eat[edit]

History of Rajkot be merged into this article[edit]

I do not think that we should merged this article into Rajkot. It will increase size of main article and there are many information should be edited. So, I am removing Mergefrom template from both articles. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jadia gaurang (talkcontribs) 13:39, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
