Founded by King Prahaladan and a part of the Paramara Rajput empire, Palanpur presently is the head quarters of the Banaskantha district. It was also once renowned as a princely estate of Gujarat during the British reign under the rulership of the Lohani Afghans. At that time, the Palanpur Agency encompassed few states at the present Gujarat- Rajasthan Border. On one side of this place is the Aravalli Range and on the other is the Sabarmati river. The city had a fort with seven gates which are almost dilapidated at present. Shimla Gate, Delhi Gate, Meera Gate and Gathaman Gate are some of those seven gates. Historical monuments like the Keertistumbh, the Jorawar Palace and the Balaram Palace are also some reminiscences of the past glory of Palanpur.
