On the date of Vikram Samvat 933's Ashad Vad 4th, Sunday, While digging in the land near tree's and shrubs in Hathel Lord Ganesha's idol was found with Golden Anklets, Kundal in ears, Crown on Head and Kandora on Waist. on that day there was an argument among the leaders of the villages Koth, Rojka and Vankutaas as to who will take the idol of Lord Ganesh..

They decided to put the idol in cart without ox and let it go where the lord wishes. The cart without ox stopped at Ganpatipur where shepherd "Dudo" had established Shaktimata of Gokul. Lord Ganesha's cart stopped there and the idol came down oneself from the cart. So from then onwards the land was known as Ganapatipura. The same date and day is found embossed in Arnej But. The name Arnej has been named after the pujari Ambaram Pandit. On that day this literature was written and given to barot.

In the year 1928 Shree Shajanand Bapa passes by the village Ganapatipura and rested between the two rano. A person named Kanbi Patel Bhagat of village Koth tried to take Bapa to Koth but he didn't go.

This literature was obtained from the books of Bharvad Barot Jilubhai Mohanbhai from Lilapur.
