A multitude of cities and towns have developed in the state of Indian subcontinent. The state of Gujarat too is also not an exception. Amongst several cities that have thronged the region, one demarcates Khedbrahma to be a significant one. Khedbrahma city is located in the district of Sabarkantha of the state of Gujarat. For managing the administration, a municipality has been established.
Without identifying the demographical scenario of this Khedbrahma it is not possible for any one to identify true features of it. Towards fulfilling such motive, several demographers have conducted numerous surveys and research works and thus prepared reports on the basis of the gathered information. In this regard, a due mentioning may be made of the Census report that has been brought out in the year 2001. One can get to know data like population status, literacy rate etc by giving a thorough glance on this report. As per this report, the total population of Khedbrahma has been measured to be 25,547. Also population of males and females individually are incorporated in this report. Male populace constitutes of 52 percent while the population of males comprises of 48 percent. In Khedbrahma town , 13 percent of the population is below six years of age. It has also been highlighted by other sources that maximum of people of this Khedbrahma belong to the Adivasi community.
From this report, literacy rate, another relevant information that is related to Khedbrahma, too can be inferred. What is interesting to note that the average literacy rate of Khedbrahma is 65 percent, which is even higher than that of the entire nation, which is measured to be 59.5 percent. On the basis of this data it can be easily concluded that Khedbrahma to is more or less developed. To be specific , males have shown interest towards education . This can be proved from the fact that the rate of male literacy constitutes 73 percent . However female literacy rate is less than that of males thereby constituting 56 percent.
This Khedbrahma town too is rich in historical inheritance. As has been pointed out by some of the experts Khedbrahma houses a consecrated shrine of Lord Brahma. A Jain Temple also is located here. A common saying is that Khedbrahma is the place of birth of the deity Amibika. Therefore every year myriads of devotees visit here from all parts of the world.
