The history regarding the settlement of Dharmaj is very ancient some says it was settled by Dharma Rabari and as the story goes that about 850 yrs ago in 1150 A.D., a Rabari by the name Dharmo came along with his family and his cattle and got settled near Khadiyari Talavdi. At that time there used to be a thick forest all around Dharmaj. As such he used to take his cattle for grazing in the forest. And to his surprise one day he found that accidentally when any cow use to graze on the place (where Dharmeshwar Mahadev stands today) the Milk would run away from the cows aanchal on its own. And this began to happen often on regular basis, this aroused the anxiety of Dharma Rabari so he started digging the place, and on excavating, to his surprise he found a Mahadev's Ling. And thus, became the devotee of Lord Shiva and built a small temple at the very place, which today stands in Main Bazar as “Dharmeshwar Mahadev” and later on the land surrounding this place came to be known as “Dharmaj” after his name. Thereafter this village was rehabilitated by Brahmins and Garasia who later on migrated to some other places. Later on, Shri Narshibhai Patel originally from Jargal came to Dharmaj to get settled down. And this, the history of settlement of “Juni Khadki” (at present Sardar Chowk) settled by him is about 850 yrs old. Once again in 1675 A.D. honorable Shri Rangaji Patel from Virol (near Sojitra) came to Dharmaj to get settle and earn his living. And later on his descendents were then divided into four Khadkis (-Vachli Khadki -Kadujini Khadki -Kakani Kahadki -Athamni Khadki) Thus the history of settlement of Kutumb of Rangaji Patel is about 325 yrs old. Also, soon after Shri Bhavanidas Patel (from Virol) migrated from Virol and got settled in Dharmaj and his descendents were paatidars of Solidas and Monardas, recognized as Solidas ni Khadki.
