Jambughoda lies in the district of Panchmahal in the eastern part of Gujarat, the Westernmost state of India. The name Panchmahal has come about from Five Palaces (Panch = 5, Mahal = palace) since this was the home of 5 princely states Lunawada, Santrampur, Devgadh Baria, Sanjeli and Jambughoda. Of these, presently only Jambughoda remains in Panchmahal with the first 2 being moved into the district of Mahisagar and the latter 2 into Dahod.
Jambughoda is tribal land and the adivasi (indigenous tribe) population is very high in this region. 40 % are the Rathwas. The Nayakas, Tadvis, Barias, Bhils, Bhilalas and other such tribes and communities form the rest of the population.
A nature lovers dream, one can revel in its numerous forest trails, waterfalls, trekking paths, picnic spots, lakes, bird sanctuaries, and other activities that include tribal interactions, experiences of rural life, trips to dams, temples, forts, heritage monuments and several other interesting sites.
