Ajmalgadh – Iranshah’s home for 14 years

During times of trials and tribulations it is well known that our ancestors shielded and protected our sacred Shreeji Pak Iranshah by moving it to different centre. History records that Shreeji Pak Iranshah was shifted to the following centres from time to time:

Sanjan – 669 years;

Bahrot Caves – 12 years (1393 – 1405 A.C.);

Vansda Forest – 14 years (1405 – 1418 A.C.);

Navsari – 313 years (1419 – 1732 A.C.);

Surat – 3 years (1733 – 1736 A.C.);

Navsari – 5 years (1736 – 1741 A.C.);

Valsad – 1 year (1741 – 1742 A.C.);

Udvada – 272 years (28-10-1742) till date.

Most Parsi Irani Zoroastrians are familiar with all the above places except for where exactly in Vansda Forest Shreeji Pak Iranshah was lodged for 14 years (1405 to 1418). Very few are aware that our Shreeji Pak Iranshah was lodged in caves on the hill at Ajmalgadh, approx two kms. away from the village of Godhmal.
