Welcome to Nadiad

The history of Patidars in NADIAD can be easily traced to Jetsi Patel (forefather of Patels of Kakarkhad, Lakhawad, Alhadvago, and Ratanji Hirji) who came to NADIAD in around Vikram Samvat 1213 (1156AD), and Kheta Patel (forefather of Desais of Desaivago) who came in around Vikram Samvat 1516. All were land owners and land tillers-farmers. To-day a Patidar (i.e. Patel and Desai) of origin in NADIAD can be found in most all parts of the world.

The decendents of Kheta Patel excelled in Rajwada (small-medium kingdom) administration and diplomacy that earned them land and title-‘Desai’ awards. The enclave they lived in became ‘Desaivago’. For many decades it was powerhouse of Rajwada admistrators, diplomats, and educators, and now of industrialists, entrprenuers, and professionals in all parts of the world.

During the years of independence movement of India, Our Town of NADIAD became focal point of the movement, frequented by Mahatma Gandhi- the Father of Our Nation and the Great Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel (born in NADIAD) whose political savy is sorely missed by India.
