Vadali, a considerable and very ancient town thirty kilometres north of Idar, is perhaps the O-cha-li or Vadari which Chinese traveller Xuanzang visited between Malwa and Valabhi circa 640 CE. In the eleventh century, Vadali was the centre of a large kingdom.
Sahanapala, son of Haripala (a Pratihara of the Paramara king Dharavarsha) built the mandapa of the Vaidyanath temple at Vadali in Vikram Samvat 1264 (1208 CE).
The chief source of income of people is agriculture. The villages surrounding Vadali grows large number of vegetables. It supplies vegetables to Sabarkantha district and as far as Ahmedabad.
