Archaeological remains dating back to two thousand years around the river Vishwamitri clarify that there was a small settlement known as the Ankottaka, near a grove of Akola trees, which is now called Akota.
Then a kilometer down east, a locality came up near a thick forest of vad or Banyan trees. In the place of Vadapadraka, today’s Vadodora has come up.
