Sangaliya is associated with history of Kulhari gotra. Kulhari is a branch of Johiya Jats. Kulhari jats ruled in Marwar area in 11th to 12th century. Bahipal was their king and Kot-Marot was their capital. There was a fort also at Kot-Marot. Bahipal had a war with the subedar of Hisar in which he lost his kingdom.
Bahipal moved to Kathod and established a new kingdom there. Kathod is about 22 km from Ajmer. The descendants of Bahipal constructed a fort at Koliya. The Raja of Koyal pattan arrested the Kulahari jats. Myth is that their Kuldevi Pada got them released. After that the Kulhari Jats made Didwana as their capital. They established at Didwana statues of Bahipal and the Kuldevi Pada.
