PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: 
The
Taluka, a Seventh Class State, is an offshoot of the Dhrol
State. Kaloji of Dhrol had seven sons of whom Sangoji was the eldest,
Bhimji
the second and Junoji the third. On Kaloji’s death Sanjoji succeded to
the Gadi of Dhrol, the other brothers having been provided with
suitable
appanages. Sangoji died while fighting on the side of Nawanagar State
with
a Mahomedan army and had no issue. The succession accordingly devolved
on Bhimji but he abdicated in favour of his younger brother Junoji,
himself
remaining content with his appanage of Khirasara and 12 other villages.
