Bhandari


According to the extract form ‘ Marwar Census Report of 1891.’ The Bhandaris trace their origin from the Chauthan family of Ajmer. According to their tradition Lakhansi Chauhan was the Raja of Sambhar and Nadole, who having no offspring prayed for it to the family – diety Asapura. In course of time the Raja was blessed with 24 sons of whom one named Dudarao was entrusted with the charge of Bhandar viz store-house, after whom his descendants came to be called Bhandaris. He was converted to Jainism by a priest called Jaso Bhadra Suri in about the samvat year 1039. The Bhandaris came to Marwar during the time of Rao Jodha whom they are said to have greatly assisted under their leader Nara Bhandari by opposing the Mewar forces at Bhilwara by opposing the Mewar forces at Bhilwara when advancing against him. The Bhandaries assert of having done enterprising deeds for their masters and consequently held for long the highest posts in the state viz those of Diwan Bakshi and the Musahibat.

            ‘Bhandari Ragunath according to Colonel Walter ruled Marwar in his master’s name for a number of years during the time Maharaja Ajitsingh was at Delhi which fact is well preserved in the Hindi Couplet-Ajo Dili Ro Pasto Raja Tau Rughnath, that is Maharajas Ajit Singh was the Emperor of Delhi and Rughnath the Raja of Marwar.

            The origin of gotr Bhandari took place in the year 1021. Its history is dignified and full of eminence.

            Rao Lakhansee had 24 queens but had no son. One day Acharya Yashobhadra Suri arrived in Nadole. The king honoured him with full devotion. At once he requested the Acharya that as he had no son, the former might bless him to be the father of a son with the support of the goddness Asapura. Acharya gave him the boon of a son to each queen. Each queen gave a birth to a son. The name of all the 24 princes are Makadji, Sagarji, Madrechaji, Chanrasenji, Shahalji, Biloji, Balechji, Savarji, Laduji Janjraiji, Sidpalji, Dudraoji, Chitaji, Sonagji, Chanchaji, Rajsinghji, Chivarji, Bodaji, Khapatji, Jodhaji, Kirpalji, Mavachji, Malanji, Maharji.

            After a few years Acharya Yashobhadra Suri again arrived at Nadole and met the king. The king gave his son Dudraoji to the Acharya. Acharya converted him into an Oswal. The king appointed Dudraoji the incharge of Bhandar viz. Store, so his gotra came to be named ‘Bhandari’.

            There were 17 heads in thepedigrees of Rao Dudrao and they were as under :-

            Rao Dusasan, Rao Sidhrao, Rao Devan, Rao Devrikh, Rao Sumno, Ra Shital, Rao Jasdhwaj, Rao Sodal, Rao Biuhad, Rao Lohat, Rao Raipal, Rao Jamun, Rao Belo, Rao Sundo, Rao Bbelan, Rao Samra, and Rao Nara.

            Kuldevi of this gotra is Shri Ashapura Mata.

            In V. 1495 Rao Ridmal was murdered by Mewar Rana by fraud. Rao Jodha ran away from Mewar with his 700 soldiers. The army of Mewar followed them. There were many wars in the mountain pas and at Chitore. Many soldiers on both the side died. Jodhaji reached Bhilwara only with the remaining 7 soldiers.

            Rao Samra Bhandari was the ruler of Nadole at that time. He believed that there had benn fraud with Jodhaji, so Rao Samraji decided to help him. Rao Samraji assured Rao Jodhaji that he would check the army of Mewar and that he should proceed further with 50 soldiers under the leadership of his son Nara. Jodhaji and Nara proceeded towards Marwar and Rao Samra fought with the army of Mewar. He and all his 300 soldiers sacrificed their lives in this war. In this way state of Nadole came in the control of Mewar.

            Rao Jodhaji reached Mandore, but the army of Mewar had conquered the State of Mandore. So Jodhaji took shelter in village Kahuni. Rao Jodhaji and Bhandari Nara organized a huge army and attacked Mandore. This time he got succesas.

            Near-about V. 1515 Rao Jodha installed the foundation stone of Jodhpur Fort on the Chidia Toonk hill, with the help of Bhandari Nara.

            Rao Jodhaji honoured Rao Nara and honoured him with the post of PRadhan and a Jagir of 7 villages, namely Rohit, Bisalpur, Mazal, Palasni, Dhundhar, Jajiwal, and Babar.

            Bhandari families in quite a large number in the Jodhpur Oswal society. Their may be more than 1200 families in Jodhpur. Their Kuldevi (Family deity) is Goddess Ashapura of Nadole. Bhandaris of Jodhpur alos built a temple of their deity at Kaga (Jodhpur).
