Derol is a village and former princely state in Gujarat, western India.

History

Derol was a Sixth Class princely state, including a second village (Vaghela?) in Mahi Kantha. It was ruled by Koli Chieftains and part of Sabar Kantha Thana.

It had a combined population of 837 in 1901, yielding a state revenue of 1,823 Rupees (1903–1904, mostly from land), paying tributes of 513 Rupees to the Gaikwar Baroda State and 47 Rupees to Idar State.

Geography and transportation

  • The village's small Derol railway station connects it to Kalol, which lies on the main trunk road State Highway-5. It is connected to Godhra, 27 km to the north, and Halol (13 km) and Vadodara (50 km) to the south.
  • Apart from the highway, it is connected to adjacent villages through a network of country roads. Most of the country roads are paved, single-lane and reasonably maintained. A portion of the route between Kalol and Vadodara is a toll road.
