          Dobhal a Brahmin caste sect of Garhwal is said to be an old caste of Garhwal. A few Dobhals claim that Dobhal came to Garhwal with King kanakpal from Dhara nagar in 887. A few Dobhals claim that they were Rajguru or court priest or minister from Bhanupratap time (around 800-900AD).. Dobhal comes under Chauthan or four premier Brahmin castes of Garhwal.
                   It is said that first Dobhal settled in Dobha or Dobh or Dwabh. There is fork story of Dobhal settling to Borikh village (Aswalsyun, Barahsyun Pargana, Pauri Garhwal) from original village Dobh or Dobha of Idwalsyun.
  Before a Dobhal family came to Borikh, there was a Dhoundiyal family in Khandwari below quarter a kilometer of today’s Borikh. Borikh means Bahurishi. Dhoundiyal was also a Karmkandi Pundit and he had Jajmans in the region. Dhoundiyal family had only one daughter. She was married to a Dobhal of Dobha, Idwalsyun. Her husband had a step brother. Both brothers had stern quarrels all the time. Dobhal the son in law of Dhoundiyal came to Borikh and strated residing with his father in law.
 After some time, Dhoundiyal wife or mother in law of Dobhal died. Before the death, Dhoundiyal rewarded his all land and Jajmani to his son law (Dobhal).
There are ruins of Dhoundiyal’s building and is called Khandwari.
This is one of two folk stories of Dobhal settling in Borikh.
