LifeEdit

Godji I was a son of Rao Pragmalji I. He led a force sent by his father to restore throne of Tamachi, the sixth in descent from their ancestor Hala, who was driven from Halar. After the death of Pragmalji, he succeeded in 1715 and ruled for a short period of three years. He deposed Haloji, the son of Pragmalji's elder brother Nagulji, of his estate of Mundra. Haloji, unable to resist, retired to Abdasa, and there founded the towns of Kothara, Kotri, and Nagarchi. His descendants are known as Halani Jadejas. He died in 1718 and was succeeded by his son Deshalji I.[1]
