The estate was part of the princely state of Mewar, and the family was among the major landed barons of that principality. It comprises 75 villages, encompassing a population, in 1901, of 7,708 and a revenue of Rs.24,000/-. It was near Gogunda that the Battle of Haldighati was fought between the armies of Maharana Pratap and the Mughal Army under Raja Man Singh.
