Kheda - Rich With Yore

15

Long ago Kheda was known as “Hidimba Van” because it is believed that Bhimsen of Mahabharata had killed a demon to marry Hidimba at this place. Kheda was initially ruled by the Babi Dynasty but later taken over by the Marathas and successively by the British.

Kheda is historically important as Gandhiji started his Satyagraha from here. Kheda was famine stricken, and the British was not exempting the taxes of the villagers. In such a situation Gandhiji initiated the first Satyagraha which ultimately made the British bow down to the pressure of the villagers and taxes for two consecutive years were suspended and interest amount decreased.
