Limda or Hanubha na Limda, literally Hanubha's Limda, is a former Rajput talukdari in Gohilwar prant of Saurashtra peninsula in the Indian state of Gujarat. It was held by the Gohil Rajputs clan. Its pre-Independence ruler held the title of Darbar Saheb.

In 1901, it comprised a town and four more villages, with a combined population of 2,194, yielding 28,000 Rupees revenue (1903-4, mostly from land).[1]

History

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 the estate of Ingorala after Lakhajiraj's death. They wrested control of Limda and neighboring villages from their Kathi rulers, thus expanding control over five villages. Their descendants held estates there until the abolition of jagirs by The Bombay Merged Territories and Areas (Jagirs Abolition) Act of 1953.

The last ruler of Limda Darbar was Saheb Shri Ranjitsinhji Bhavsinhji Gohil who played an active role in the liberation of Junagadh from Nawab during the Arz-I-Hukumat movement. He was a Member of the Legislative Assembly (1967) from Gadhada assembly constituency.[2]

Rulers

The family were members of the Gohil Dynasty of Rajputs.
