HISTORY of RAJPUT

 



Bhati

bhati-logo.gifBhati Rajputs mostly reside in region of Jaisalmer and partly in border villages of Bikaner and some tehsils of jodhpur (Osian and Shergarh). Rawal Jaisal was descendent of the Yadu vansi Clan and a Bhati Rajput. Bhati Rajputs were chandra vansi Rajputs. Rawal Jaisal founded the city of Jaisalmer in 1156 AD. The new fort he built was on hill called Trikuta.

Bhati Rajputs were great camel riders and warriors. Their reign spread as far as punjab, pakistan and Afganistan. Their are certain monuments in Lahore such as Bhati gate which states their rule on Lahore which they conquered from Mahmood Ghazanavi.

The state of Jaisalmer was positioned right in the way of the route from Afganistan- Pakistan - Delhi. Taking advantage of this strategic position they levied taxes on the passing carvan. Bhati Rajputs were said to be great shooters with gun.

Sidhu, who are Sikhs has their origin from the Bhati Rajputs of Jaisalmer. Bhatti rajputs of Punjab and Pakistan have their origin from Bhati Rajputs of Jaisalmer.


Chauhan
According to the Rajput bards the Chauhan is one of the four Agnikula or 'fire sprung' tribes who were created by the gods in the anali kund or 'fountain of fire' on Mount Abu to fight against the Asuras or demons. Chauhan is also one of the 36 (royal) ruling races of the Rajputs.

Chauhan dynasty flourished from the 8th to 12th centuries AD. It was one of the four main Rajput dynasties of that era, the others being Pratiharas, Paramaras and Chalukyas. The Chauhans dominated Delhi, Ajmer, Ranthambhor. They were also prominent at Sirohi in the southwest of Rajputana, and at Bundi and Kota in the east. Inscriptions also associate them with Sambhar, the salt lake area in the Amber (later Jaipur) district. Chauhan politics were largely campaigns against the Chalukyas and the invading Muslim hordes. In the 11th century they founded the city of Ajayameru (Ajmer) in the southern part of their kingdom, and in the 12th century captured Dhilika (the ancient name of Delhi) from the Tomaras and annexed some of their territory along the Yamuna River. Prithviraj III has become famous in folk tales and historical literature as the Chauhan king of Delhi who resisted the Muslim attack in the first Battle of TARAIN (1191). Armies from other Rajput kingdoms, including Mewar assisted him. However, Prithviraj was defeated in a second battle at Tarain the following year. This failure ushered in Muslim rule in North India in the form of the SLAVE DYNASTY, the first of the Delhi Sultanates.

Hada
The city of Jhalawar is situated in the south-eastern region of Rajasthan, a region widely known as Hadoti (Hadavati), the land of Hadas. The Hadas are a major branch of the great Chauhan clan of Agnikula Rajputs.

In the 12th century A.D., Hada Rao Deva conquered this territory and founded Bundi state and Hadauti. Later in the early 17th century A. D. during the reign of Mughal emperor Jahangir, the Ruler of Bundi, Rao Ratan Singh gave the smaller principality of Kota to his son, Madho Singh, but when Sahajahan became the emperor, he issued a Farmaan in the name of Madho Singh, recognizing as him the King of Kota. The domain of the Hadas of Bundi and Kota extended from the hills of Bundi in the west to the Malwa plateau in the east, with a similar expense from north to south.

The State of Jhalawar was founded on 8 April, 1838, out of the Kota territory. Jhalawar state got rise as a result of a treaty between English rulers, Kota state, and Malwa state.

Kachwaha
Kachawaha has been a distinguished Rajvans of the 36 Rajput Rajvans, well known person Ram of history is worshiped as god. Descendants of Kush, son of Ram were known as Kushwah (Kachawaha). Raja Suryapal founded Gwalior, Raja Vazaradama of Gwalior was a famous ruler of this vans.

In 10th century descendent of Varzadama Dulhe Rai founded the Kachawa rule in Rajasthan in 12th century. It is said Kankil became the ruler of Amber. Pajwan of Amber was the contemporary of Prithviraj Chauhan (1178-1192 AD.) OF Ajmer. was called the crown Sanwants of Prithviraj. He was killed in the fight to win over Sanyogita. Later in Amber Rajvans Raja Man Singh who showed his bravery from Kabul to far south, Gujarat and Bengal.

Kachawaha are the suryavansi rajputs, they reined over area in and around Jaipur. Present districts under them were Jaipur, Dausa, Sikar ,Jhunjhunu, Churu, Sawai Madhopur.

Rathore
Rathore are the people from the west Rajasthan. Their area spreads from Marwar (Jodhpur) region, Barmer, Churu, Bikaner. They had kingdoms in Rajasthan, Jodhpur (Marwar) and Bikaner (Jangladesh), Nagaur. Rathore's have many gotras, most of these gotras are from the name of the great warriors of the past and gotras are being used by their family members. Some of these gotras are: Jodha, Bidawat, Banirot, Champawat, mertiya and so forth.

Rathore's were said to be the worshipers of sun. To understand the huge clan of Rathore's we will have understand their areas they occupy. Rathore's of Jodhpur were supreme in present districts such as - Jodhpur, Pali, Ajmer, Nagaur, Barmer, Sirohi. Rathore,s of Bikaner were occupant of the area that included districts Bikaner, Churu, Ganganagar, Hanumangarh.

These two states (Jodhpur and Bikaner) had many major and minor thikana's ( Thikana was the jagir and each Jagir included many villages as per the thikana). Each Thikana had a Thakur. Who in turn paid revenue to the Maharaja of the state and also provided with well trained soldiers to the Maharaja in Battle

Shekhawat
Shekhawat are the most prominent of the all the Kachawahas. They are offsprings of the great Kachawaha Rajput warrior Rao Shekha ( 1443 - 1488). He ruled over the region called 'Shekhawati' , comprising of the districts of Sikar, Jhunjhunu, Churu.

He was son of Thakur of Nan Mokal Kachawaha and Nirwan Queen. He was born on 24 sept. 1433, at Amra Dhabai ki Dhani. Later in the memory Amra Rao shekh founded Amarsar.On death of his old father Rao Mokal, Rao Shekha took over the reigns in 1459, at that time he was only 12.

Shekhawt's and Shekhawati (area in which they reside) has given maximum number of soldiers to the country. And about 30,000 of this regions soldiers have died in first and second world war. Maximum causalities of soldiers in Kargil conflict were of Shekhawati region. This area is also recipient of the first Param veer chakra in India, which was won by Piru Singh Shekhawat of village Rampura beri (district- Churu). He was from 6th Rajputana Rifles. Most of the Rajput troops from shekhawati are enrolled in Rajputana Rifles, rajput regiment and grenadiers regiment.

Sisodia
Mewar is the oldest kingdom of the world. Mewar or Udaipur state was founded by Guhil 568 AD, and his descendants have ruled over the area ever since. Separated from the rePicturest of India by mountains and dense forests, Mewar developed the spirit of iron discipline and stoic resolve, which was to become its most salient feature and to arm its determined resistance.

Sisodia, the major clan of Mewar since Maharana HAMIR SINGH I (1326-1364). Prior to that, since Guhil (569-586) founded the dynasty, the original Guhilot family ruled Mewar. However, in the 12th century, Chittor came under attack and the Mewar capital was relocated at AHAR. It was during this period that there was a FAMILY SPLIT. For reasons unknown, the breakaway occurred possibly towards the end of the reign of Rawal KARAN (RAN) SINGH I (1158-1168). Two of his sons, Mahap and Rahap, quit Ahar, possibly in anger that another son, KSHEM SINGH had been declared Karan's heir. Mahap established a small, independent kingdom at Dungarpur. Rahap defeated Mokal, the Paramara (Parihara) Prince of Mandor at SISODA. He established a junior branch of the Guhilot family at Sisoda, naming his clan Sisodias after the town, and taking the title of 'Rana'.

Sisoda, a town about 15 km. northwest of NATHDWARA, which became the headquarters of the breakaway branch of the ruling Guhilot family of Mewar, naming themselves SISODIA after the town. See following entry, and MEWAR FAMILY SPLIT.

Genealogy: The line of succession of the Sisodia Ranas was Rahap, Narpat, Dinkaran, Jaskaran Nagpal, Puran Pal, Prithi Pal, Bhuvan Singh, Bhim Singh, Jai Singh and Laksha (or Lakshman) Singh.

Laksha was killed at the first sack of Chittor (1303), as was the ruler of Mewar, Rawal RATAN SINGH I. Laksha's grandson, Hamir succeeded him, and also the king. Thus the Sisodias became the ruling family of Mewar with HAMIR SINGH I (1326-1364), who replaced the age-old, traditional title of 'Rawal' with that of the Sisodias, 'Rana', extending it to 'Maharana'.

In his Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan, James TOD recounts an amusing story of the origin of the name Sisodia. He claims an old holy man near Bhainsrorgarh told it to him.

In these wilds, an ancient Rana of Chittor (actually Ahar, as his patronymic in this tale is Ahariya) sat down to a got (feast) consisting of the game slain in the chase: and being very hungry, he hastily swallowed a piece of meat to which a gadfly adhered. The fly grievously tormented the Rana's stomach, and he sent for a physician. The wise man (bedi) secretly ordered an attendant to cut off the tip of a cow's ear, as the only means of saving the monarch's life. On obtaining this forbidden morsel (the cow being sacred to a Hindu, the consumption of beef is therefore anathema), the bedi folded it in a piece of thin cloth, and attaching a string to it, made the royal patient swallow it. The gadfly fastened on to the bait, and was dragged to light. The physician was rewarded; but the curious Rana insisted on knowing by what means the cure was effected. When he heard that a piece of sacred kine had passed his lips, he determined to expiate the enormity in a manner that its heinousness required, and to swallow boiling lead (sisa)! A vessel was put on the fire, and half a ser soon melted, when, praying that his involuntary offence might be forgiven, he boldly drank it off; but lo! It passed through him like water. From that day, the name of the tribe was changed from Aharya to Sisodia (possibly after the miraculous dose of molten lead, 'sisa').

Told called it "an absurd tale"; as stated above, the name Sisodia was derived from the village of Sesoda in western Mewar. Author, Chandradioji Sisodia, writing in the time of Maharana Fateh Singh, paid the clan this eulogistic (and, of course, biased) tribute:

The noblest of the noble race of Rajputs, represent the elder branch of the Suryanvanshi (Children of the Sun) Raghuvansi, another patronymic derived from the predecessor of Rama from whom (as genealogists state), all the solar lines descended. The titles of many of these families are disputed. But the entire Aryan or Hindu race yield unanimous franchise to the Chief of the Sisodias, as the legitimate heir to the throne of Many, Ishwaku, Delipa, Raghu, Darasratha, and Rama, and style him 'Hindua Suraj' (sun of the Hindu race) and 'Yavadaryakulakamladhivarkara' (sun of the entire Aryan race). He is universally allowed to be the first of the 36 royal clans, therefore, as the crowning ornament of the Aryan aristocracy is quite beyond all question of rivalry.

Re: RAJPUT

(ThePlainTruth3, 2013-03-30 00:36)

To Waqas Ahmad Rajput, I am happy to know that you, from the line of Rajput kings, are doing well in Pakistan. I am a Chauhan rajput from India. To all idiots who say that Rajputs converted because they were afraid, I'll say that you are hopelessly deluded. I personally feel that Rajputs really don't give a fuck if they face mortal danger. That is because when we face danger there are only a few things to be done: 1)reach an agreement with the enemy and fight another day; 2)don't reach an agreement with the enemy, kill the women and children and fight till death;3) don't reach an agreement, kill the women and children and escape to get revenge another day. These may be hard to do, but when you live and die with soldiers, this is a part of your life.
Many people converted because of the obvious advantages they found in becoming Muslim, or perhaps they really did like the new religion. I am descended from the line of Prithviraj Chauhan's brother. I can understand that some people wanted to convert because of monetary advantages.
I can only tell you one thing. When we go to the Ganga and take the remains of our deceased relatives and perform asthi visarjan, we are connected to the oldest line of kings. The traditional priests who help in performing these rites have the history of what our ancestors gave their the ancient priests for performing these rites(like gold, elephants, etc.) centuries ago. Hinduism is a religion that is ours like nothing else. It is a religion of our ancestors, borne from our own people. ISLAM WILL NEVER BECOME THAT. It is a foreign religion that can serve only to drive a wedge between a people and their culture. I can tell you that Hinduism is your religion like no other religion can be.
I think a lot of people wish to be close to their true origins for there is a love of our forefathers and our culture and our history that cannot be taken away.
When I think of it, I realise that I could myself be in your position. If I were born in a Muslim rajput family, I'd have conflicting forces pulling me. But I realise that I'd want to rejoin my own culture. The term 'Rajput' comes from Sanskrit. And I wonder whether you have ever had the chance to read this language. Perhaps mountains can be turned, and perhaps what is morally wrong can be corrected.
Perhaps you too will give up this foreign infection that has nothing to do with India or its ancient culture. But the thing is that if a god himself commanded me to give up Hinduism, I'd not do it. I believe it is my stubbornness more than anything that is the reason for it. But there it stands. So I appreciate the fact that you are proud of your ancestors, but believe me, you'd truly be honouring them by leaving this alien culture called Islam that has never had anything to do with your ancestors or mine and never will.

Re: Re: RAJPUT

(Suhail Chauhan, 2016-04-07 12:35)

I have gone through your para and found that you are a sensible looking gentleman but a bit more motivated religiously. It is good to be a religious, after all all religion teaches same but we don't know about them and keep arguing nad abusing each other. Rajput is nothing related with religion. The best peoplle in society in those days were Rajputs because they truly folloowed humanity and teaching of their ancistors. Same is taught and acted by Prophet Muhammed which we accepted but no one have seen GOD. So, I request all ill informed rajputs to stood up and try to bring our community upfront who are lacking way behing after all zamadaari finished and redistributed till dates.
