History

Jamnagar, historically called Nawanagar or the new city, was one of the most important princely states of Saurashtra. The Jamnagar district, originally constituted as Halar district, is of recent origin; however, the region comprised therein is of great antiquity and dates back to ancient periods of Jamnagar. According to Pauranik literature, Lord Krishna established his kingdom at Dwarka, now in Jamnagar district, after his migration from Mathura and accordingly, it is to the Yadava race that the Jams of Nawanagar trace their descent.

The founder of the princely state of Jamnagar was the Jadeja clan's Jam Rawal, who descended on the northern coast of Kathiawar in 1535 A.D. Jam Rawal's father Jam Lakhaji ruled in Terabanu in Kutch.

The Jats in district are Muslims known as Halai Jat.


Ram Swarup Joon[1] writes that some Gondal people call themselves descendants of the Chauhans, but others associate themselves with Lord Krishna. According to historical evidence Jarija and Yadu Bhan were two brothers in the dynasty of Krishna. Jarija established his rule in Kathiawar, Gujarat. The present chieftains of Jamnagar, Dharol, Rajkot, Gonal and Morvi belonged to this very dynasty but all of, them now claim to be Rajputs. The Gondal of Rawalpindi, Cambalpur, Shapur, Mainwali are called Jats. Bosal, Tole, Jaspal, Sanatana and Gogh are branches of the Gondals.
