Baria State [The State of Baria], also known as Bariya State, was one of the princely states of India during the period of the British Raj. It was under the Rewa Kantha Agency of the Bombay Presidency and had its capital in Devgadh Baria town of present-day Dahod district in Gujarat state.

The state was founded by around 1524. The state had seven subdivisions: Randhikpur, Dudhia, Umaria, Haveli, Kakadkhila, Sagtala and Rajgad. Baria's Rajput last ruler signed the accession to the Indian Union on 10 June 1948.[citation needed]

The rulers of Baria were titled "Maharawal" from 1864 onwards.[1] They were granted a hereditary salute of 9 guns by the British.[2]
