Vanala is a village and former Rajput princely state on Saurashtra peninsula in Gujarat state, western India.

History[edit]

The nearby archeological site of Rangpur, India dates back to the Harappan culture.

Vanala was a petty princely state in Jhalawar prant, comprising only Vana village, under a Jhala Rajput Chieftain.

It had a population of 311 in 1901, yielding a state revenue of 2300 Rupees (mostly from land; 1903-4) and paying 396 Rupees tribute to the British.

During the British Raj, the petty state was under the colonial Eastern Kathiawar Agency.

Village[edit]

Vanla lies in Chuda Taluka, Surendranagar district.[2]

It is a tiny village of population of around 1100. Majority of peoples are Jhala - Rajputs, other castes also reside there.

It has good road transport facilities from Limbdi (10 km) and Dhandhuka (21 km).
