Raja Mahipal was a famous king in the history. King Vikramaditya and king Bhoj were his ancestors. He was much more impressed by the virtues of Tapagachh Acharya Mahatma Posalia. By the order of the Acharya he accepted Jainism. His son was named Kochar. Kochar was very brave person. He joined in oswals and his family was called Kochar.

As per the book 'Mahajan Vansh Muktwali' Mahipalji was a treasurer in Rao Chuda's court. He had no son thus he was worried. One day Mahatma Posaliaji of Tappa Gachh came to Mahipal's house and requested him to do his work with the condition that if he would do his work then he will also give him a boon. Mahipalji did his work and in return he gave him a blessing that soon he will be a father of a son if he follows the Jainism and worship the Goddess Visal Devi or an idol having 20 hands. She is mounted on a Buffalo. He did so. Devi appeared and blessed him with the condition that he and his family will worship her and especially on Ashoj shukla 5th and Chait shukla 4th every year. On the acceptation of it the Goddess said to name the child when a bird Kochari will sing on the top of you house. Mahipal got a son and he named him Kochar. From that day they are called Kocha.
