The Vaghela dynasty was a ruling clan of Gujarat, India. They expanded their dynasty to all of Gujarat, north Rajasthan, west Madhyapradesh and north Maharashtra.

Vaghela (means chase of the tiger)
Raj solanki had two wives. He issued two sons. First one is famous king of Patan, Mulraj Solanki was the son of first queen who is sister of Samantsinh Chavada king of Patan. Second queen who is sister of Lakhaji jadeja (Lakho Fulani) had son named Rakhayat. Rakhyat married with raymati and issued son named VYAGHRDEO. She keep him in Vyaghreshvari mataji’s temple at Aatkot’s jungle and she was be SATI. Their son protected by Vyaghreshvari Mataji so he knowned by Vyaghradeo and After him, his vansh known as VAGHELA/BAGHEL/WAGHELA.

The Vaghela dynasty is very powerful dynasty of Gujarat region. The VAGHELAS are the great rujer of Gujarat who expand their dynasty to whole Gujarat, North Rajasthan, West Madhya Pradesh and North Maharashtra. The Vaghelas were Rajput Branch of the Solanki rulers of Anhilwad. Lawan Prasad, a general in the army of Bhimdev-II Solanki. He also gained control over an area known as Dhavalgadh, around present day Dholka. During the latter years of Bhimdev-II's reign, due to internal differences, Lawan Prasad rebelled against the king and took complete control over the areas of Dhawalgadh and Dhandhuka, and also some areas in the south of Gujarat. This rebellion laid the foundation for the greater resistance and resultant overthrowing of the Solanki rulers from Anhilwar, by the Vaghela. The final attack on Anhilwar during the reign of Tribhuwanpal Solanki, was made by Vishaldev Vaghela, the grandson of Lawan Prasad. Although, Vishaldev's father, Vir Dhaval Vaghela had already started to annex territories belonging to the Solanki, and had greatly increased his dominions as well his military powers. Many historians consider Vir Dhaval to be the first actual Vaghela ruler of Gujarat, due to the major increase of his power and control of the various areas of Gujarat.

Vishaldev Vaghela is most widely known and was perhaps the most celebrated of the Vaghela rulers of Gujarat. He won military campaigns against Malwa(Parmar) and was able to largely bring under control the various rebelling factions of the degraded kingdom of the last Solanki ruler, Tribhuwanpal. Vishaldev was also a great patron of learning and is known for his contributions to the encourage arts, poetry and religious pageantry. Vishaldev, after a long and successful reign, was succeeded by his son Arjundev, who in turn was succeeded by his son Sarangdev. Little is known about the reigns of these Vaghela rulers, and they seem to have enjoyed a reasonably peaceful and properous reign.

Sarangdev Vaghela was succeeded by his son, brave, and unbending hero, Karandev, also known in history as Karan 'Ghelo. Karandev was the last in the line of the Vaghela chieftains of Anhilwar, and also the last Rajput ruler to have held control of most of Gujarat and Saurashtra. Just 2 years after ascending the throne of Anhilwar, Karandev was engaged by the troops of Ala-Ud-Din Khilji, the Muslim ruler of Delhi. The general in charge of the Muslim army, as Alaf Khan, a favorite of Ala, and his half brother. Karan gave a brave resistance, and after a vigorous strugge, the Rajputs finally retreated and Anhilwar fell in the hands of the Muslim, once again. The city was plundered and ravaged. Alaf Khan captured the beautiful wife of Karandev, and sent her to Delhi as a victory present to the Sultan. He then moved west and destroyed once again, the grand temple of Someshwar (Somnath) at Prabhas Pattan.
Karandev, in the meantime, broken and hishonored at losing his county, his possessions and his wife, repaired to Devgadh in Deccan. He refused to give in to the request of the Muslims to surrender, and started to gather a force to engage the Muslims again at Anhilwar. Karandev lost this war and escaped with her Queen Kamaladevi(kauladevi) and Daughter Devaldevi.Queen died while escaping. Karandev and Devaldevi went to the Devgadh. Two prince of Karandev and one of his queen of Jadeja dyanasty of kutch were sent to the kutch saurashtra region. The sultan sent another force under a slave general Kafur, to attack Karandev in Devgadh, and bring back to him, his daughter, the princess Devaldevi. Thus ended the rule of the last Hindu ruler of Anhilwar. Broken and disillusioned, Karandev refused to surrender and spent the last of his days roaming the lands of the country, he once ruled. However, he is still respected for his brave resistance and his unbending courage. He came to be known as Karan Ghelo for this reason.

After Karandev vaghela, Gujarat broken up in the many parts. Any Rajputs or Muslims could not control whole Gujarat after Vaghela dyanasty. The Vaghelas Divided in the whole Gujarat. Villages of Vaghela Dyanasty are located near SANAND(Ahmedabad), DHOLKA(Ahmedabad), KALOL, RAPAR(KUTCH), Kadi(Mahesana) etc.

Manipulation in history of Karandev Vaghela by Muslim Rulers

(Chetansinh Vaghela, 2013-03-07 17:24)

Whatever history is available regarding Karandev's battle with Muslim ruler and capturing queen and sending as a gift to Ala ud din Khalji and sending his army back to capture his daughter is not correct history because if you check it it is taken from history written by Muslims at that time. After destroying Muslim rulers have always manipulated history in their own way. Hence it is not true.

Rajput woman will like to die instead of going in hands of Muslim. Both his queen and daughter must have died and not fallen in hands of Muslim army. Karandev infact is a hero similar to Maha Rana Pratap who never gave up and fought till end of his life. Karandev was a brave hero in true sense who fought vigorously till end of his life and never gave up to Muslim rulers.

As Muslims have manipulated history now when it is rule of Hindus we must change this history about his wife and daughter. For this we must contact Barots of Vaghela who can give us proper history with proofs

Jai Mataji........Proud to be Rajput
