    • Hello Sanjay,

      Gohil and Gohel are the same. People write it either way. It is possible that your family settled near Baroda many centuries ago, having migrated from Gohilwad in Saurashtra or from Rajpipla.

    • Good afternoon Mr. Mehta,

      I am in Delhi and have not yet finalised my plan regarding return to Rajpipla.

      There are some comfortable places to stay in and around Rajpipla. In fact, my cousin Shri Harendra Pal Singh of Poshina will also be able to guide you.
