The Guhila dynasty ruled the Medapata (modern Mewar) region in present-day Rajasthan state of India. The Guhila kings initially ruled as Gurjara-Pratihara vassals between 8th and 10th centuries. Their capitals included Nagahrada (Nagda) and Aghata (Ahar). For this reason, they are also known as the Nagda-Ahar branch of the Guhilas. The Guhilas assumed sovereignty after the decline of the Gurjara-Pratiharas in the 11th century. The Guhilas were conferred with Rana while their successors, The Sisodias of Chittorgarh and Udaipur were conferred with Maharana.

WP:INDIA Banner/Rajasthan workgroup Addition

Note: {{WP India}} Project Banner with Rajasthan workgroup parameters was added to this article talk page because the article falls under Category:Rajasthan or its subcategories. Should you feel this addition is inappropriate , please undo my changes and update/remove the relavent categories to the article -- TinuCherian (Wanna Talk?) - 07:32, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

The flag (Nishaan, dvaj) of Mewar is 1. Crimson, and not purple as depicted here, and 2. It contains a golden light-radiating / flaming sum and a silver colored Kataar (non-curved, triangular dagger), but NOT a moon, the pointed end of kataar should be pointing towards the apex of the triangular flag, the kataar should be rotated 90 degrees and 3. The flag shape is (?) an isosceles triangle and NOT a right angle triangle. Necessary corrections should be made in the flag.

The pronounciation (long "a" like "wand") is not very helpful. I am English, and "wand" has a shot vowel for me! It would be better to use the phonetic alphabet. Bazza1971 (talk) 16:36, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

huh…… I'm in america, and its still short. this person probably meant short. (talk) 10:16, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

In fact there are TWO WRONGS here! 1.The long "aa" should be as in "far"-simple! More importantly, the name should NOT end in "r" but in "d", so the correct spelling will be Mewaad. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PSKarjali (talkcontribs) 14:11, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Information about the Mewar State / Kingdom

According to this article, this article is about the "natural and historical region", and there is a separate article about the kingdom / state: Udaipur State. As such, the overly detailed sections about the kingdom / state do not belong here. These sections are largely unsourced -- if nobody has an objection, I'll trim/remove these. utcursch | talk 16:19, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Makes sense. A very brief/trimmed history may be adequate to provide some basic context for the historical region.Deccantrap (talk) 19:12, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
