During the early historic time, this region goes back to Kushana period around 120 CE. Kanishka had conquered Rohat and Jaitaran area of Pali district. After the Islamic invasions on India, this region was concentrated by Rajput rulers from all over India. During the period from 10th to 15th century, boundaries of Pali extended adjoining Mewar, Godwad and Marwar. After the defeat of Prithviraj Chauhan, against Mohammed Gauri, the Rajput power of the area was disintegrated. Godwad area of Pali became the subject of the then ruler of Mewar, Maharana Kumbha. But Pali city was ruled by Brahmin rulers with the patronage of neighboring Rajput rulers.

Auwa fort was surrounded by the British army and then conflicts lasted many days.
