ABOUT PATAN

Patan was established by the Chapotkata ruler Vanaraja in the 8th century as "Anahilapataka".[1] During 10th-13th century, the city served as the capital of the Chalukyas, who supplanted the Chapotkatas.

Muhammed's general and later Sultan of Delhi Qutb-ud-din Aybak sacked the city between the 1200 and 1210, and it was destroyed by the Allauddin Khilji in 1298. The modern town of Patan later sprung up near the ruins of Anhilwara. During 1304 to 1411, first Patan was the Suba headquarter of Delhi Sultanate and the capital city of the Gujarat Sultanate after the collapse of the Delhi Sultanate at the end of the 14th century. A new fort was built by these subs as, a large portion of which (along with a few of the gates) is still intact. The old fort of the Hindu kingdom is nearly vanquished and only a wall can be seen on the way from Kalka to Rani ki Vav. In 1411, Sultan Ahmed Shah moved the capital to Ahmedabad.

Patan was part of the Baroda state from the mid-18th century until India's independence in 1947 when Baroda became part of Bombay state, which is 1960 was separated into Gujarat and Maharashtra.
