PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: The

Chandravanshi Dodia Rajputs, one of the 36 rajput clans. Early
historical documents state that the Dodias were based
in and
around Multan in Sindh (now in Pakistan) during 12th and 13th
centuries, when they built
a fort near Multan by the name of Rohtashgarh.
In the 14th century the Dodia Rajputs migrated to Gujarat and

their
kingdom around Girnar (Junagarh) by Raja Phul Singh Dodia, and from
there they were ruled by Rawat Soorsinghji, Rawat Chandrabhansinghji,
Rawat
Krishnaji, Rawat
Chalotji and Rawat Arjundasji. From this place, one of the Dodia
brothers of the Rawat migrated to
Mewar Chittorgarh accompanying the Rajmata of Mewar as an escort. The
Dodias proved their valour in various battles in the service of Mewar,
including the Battle of Haldighati, and were rewarded with the jagir of
Lava (later called Sardargarh). Rawat Singhraoji migrated from Gujarat
