Limda or Hanubha na Limda, literally Hanubha's Limda, is a former Rajput talukdari in Gohilwar prant of Saurashtra peninsula in Gujarat, western India. It was held by Gohil Rajputs Clan and its ruler held title of Darbar saheb. 1901 it comprised the town and four more villages, with a combined population of 2,194, yielding 28,000 Rupees revenue (1903-4, mostly from land).[1]

Shaktisinh Gohil, of the Limda family, is an Indian politician, currently serving as Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha. He is national spokesperson of All India Congress Committee,[2] presidium of Indian National Congress and AICC in-charge for the state of Bihar and Delhi. Gohil is considered most prominent face of party in state of Gujarat. Gohil is a former Minister of health, education and finance.


The talukdari in Gohilwar prant was established by Hanubha Gohil, third son of Lakhaji III, 16th Thakor Saheb of Lathi. Hanubha and his brothers Fatehsinh and Ajabha were given estate of Ingorala after death of Lakhajiraj. They were able to wrest control of Limda and neighboring villages from their Kathi rulers, thus expanding control over total five villages. Their descendants held estates here until the abolition of jagirs by The Bombay Merged Territories and Areas (Jagirs Abolition) Act of 1953.

The last ruler of Limda Darbar saheb shri Ranjitsinhji Bhavsinhji Gohil played an active role in the liberation of Junagadh from Nawab during Arz-I-Hukumat movement. He was a Member of the Legislative Assembly (India)(1967) from Gadhada assembly constituency.[3]


The family were members of the Gohil Dynasty of Rajputs.
