Brief About Vadodara District
Vadodara, also known as Baroda, is the third-most populated town in Gujarat after Vadodara and Surat (the three towns with a population of over 1 million in Gujarat). It is located on the Vishwamitri river, southeast of Vadodara and is known as the Cultural Capital of Gujarat.

Vadodara is also a district in the state of Gujarat and the city is the administrative headquarters of this district. This district is surrounded by Panchmahal, Dahod (North), Bharuch, Narmada (South), Anand and Kheda (West) districts. To the east is the state of Madhya Pradesh. It is home to almost 1.492 million people (as of 2001), the beautiful Maharaja Palace and the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda (M.S.U.) which is famous for its faculty of technology and engineering (Techo) and fine arts department. It has a high literacy rate by Indian standards of 78% (2001). About 15,000 people lived in slums in Vadodara according to the provisional results of census 2001. Major industries include textiles, petrochemicals, engineering and a small but growing software industry. It was one of the cities affected by the 2002 rioting between Hindus and Muslims. The riots in Gujarat led to around 2,000 deaths, most of them Muslims.

Origin of Name

The earliest mention of Baroda is in a grant or charter of [812] that identifies it as Vadapadraka, a village attached to the nearby town of Ankottaka. In the 10th century Vadapadraka replaced Ankottaka as the main town. The city was once called Chandravati, after its ruler Raja Chandan, then Viravati, the abode of the brave, and then Vadpatra because of the abundance of banyan trees on the banks of the Vishwamitri. From Vadpatra it derived its present name Baroda or Vadodara.
