History of Nar Town
In Samvat 926 Rangba, daughter of Vaccha Patel married Sarbhanbha Desai of Savli. Patels of current six Khadkis (family house) are the descendants of Dhanabhai Patel. One of the prominent names of Gangadas who is remembered in the region along with Vir Vasandas of Virsad. In Samvat 1757, Bhagwandas, son of Narerdas and nephew of Gangadas married Taraben, daughter of Vir Vasandas. In 1782 Taraben, Shiv follower became a widow in 1782 and built a Mahadev. Later Mahatma Gandhi’s Statue was installed near by. During this period then known as Narangpur was ruling the surrounding 49 villages. Based on discovery of some remains, it is believed that there was a fort. Mahot Patel was the administrator of the town but was ruled by Kshtriyas. Gangadas and Narerdar were also leading figures during this time. When the Kshtriyas murdered Mahot Patel, Gangadas pleaded the case to the Governor in Ahmedabad. The governor issued an order to punish the culprits and Mahot Patel was cremated on the bank of river Vatrak. Gangadas was saddened at the merciless killings of Rajput families by the Governor’s army and intervened to save the children and women with the help of Narerdas. Gangadas later took control of the town to establish peace but himself murdered in Agra. The King in his honor in Agra built Gangeshwer Mahadev temple.
