Ghemawat (Otavat)


There was Hastikund near Bijapur. King Digvat was the rular of it. Acharya Shri Balbhadra enlightened him and converted him to the cult of non-violence and to an Osawal. In his lineage was Bhandaji, who organized a Sangh for Girnar and Shrtrunjaya. In 1800 there were Ghemaji and Otaji in his pedigree. These brothers built a Jain Temple of Lord Manmohan Parshvanath. The family of Ghemaji named ‘Ghemavat’ and  Family of Otaji named ‘Otavat’. It is also said that these gotras are sub-gotra of ‘Hatunia Rathore’
