Velar has a history dating back to more than a thousand years and hosts many temples. The village is very old. It has existed for the last 1200 years. There is evidence that shows that it was in existence at the time of the ruler Prithiviraj Chouhan i.e. (1166-1192 AD).
The temple of Jalerii Mataji i.e. goddess of water, is very famous in this area. If any unmarried girl comes into the range of this God at any time, then it is necessary for that girl to come for the worship of Goddess Jaleri Mataji after the birth of her first child. There is also one very old temple of Shivji, which is called Navtirth, and another old temple dedicated to Devi Choudra Mataji. The village is named after the Goddess Vara Mataji. There is a very old Jain temple of Lord Adinath. This was built by the Jain community before 1750-1800 AD. Currently, no Jain resides in the village.
