Gohils are the only Sisodia clan to who have held a sway in Gujarat
for a long period. Originally from Khergarh, in Mewar, they migrated to Gujarat after been driven out from Khergarh by the Rathore rulers. They established their kingdom on the southwestern part of Saurashtra
, on the shores of the Gulf of Khambat, in where now called Bhavnagar
. The Gohil rulers had heroically resisted Muslim rule and the subjugation from other rulers.
Gopnath Bungalow, located at Gopnath, was once the pleasant sea-shore retreat of Gohil rulers of Bhavnagar and is built in European colonial style.
