History

The petty princely state in Jhalawar prant was ruled by Kathi Chieftains. In 1901 it has a population of 1,588, yielding a state revenue of 8,000 Rupees (1903–04, 7,000 from land), paying 1,550 Rupees tribute, to the British and the Junagadh State.

During the colonial British Raj, it was a separate tribute-paying taluka under the Bhoika thana. The Garasias were Jhalas and were Bhayad of Limbdi State. The taluka consisted of three villages: Bhalgamda, and Chornia.[1]
