How Chadchat got its Name

Chadchat, Patan

Chadchat is said to take its name from the Chavad or Chad Chadchat branch of the Parmar tribe who conquered the district, till then occupied by Turks, probably the same who settled at Santalpur. This tribe was afterwards known in history as the Chavad Rajputs, though in reality a sub-division of the ancient tribe of Parmars.
