Dahod Travel and Tourism Guide

Dahod District was created on 2 October 1997, and was formerly part of Panchmahal District. Its territory mostly consists of two former Princely States, namely Baria (Devgadh) and Sanjeli, in addition to Fatehpura Taluka of Sunth(Rampur), along with the two "eastern mahals" of Dahod and Jhalod from the former Panch Mahals.

Dahod history dates back to the 17th century when The Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb was born in 1618 AD. During the reign of another Mughal Emperor Jahangir, there were tremendous developments in the city and there was further growth because of the active involvement of future Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan into administrative affairs who was the "Subedar (Governor) of Gujarat". Emperor Aurangzeb was believed to have commanded his staff to show special interest in the city because of it being his birthplace.

Tatya Tope, one of the great freedom fighters, is known to have sought refuge in Dahod when the freedom fighting movement in India was at its peak. It is believed that he spent his final days in the city.

Post-Independence Dahod has grown into a self-sufficient district in Gujarat state. It is considered as one of the biggest agro-based commodity markets of Gujarat, and thrives to growing even further.
