Gundesha Or Gundecha


            Gautam gotri Palliwal Brahmins were residing in Pali in V. 1248. They were in majority in number. They were prominent peoplr of Pali at that time. They had a great say in the Government.

            Mugal Emperor Pirankhan attacked Pali in V. 1248. Pallival Brahmins fought bravely but suffered heavy losses. Historians say that the sacred threads of all those Brahmins killed in the war were collected and weighed. Their weight was 7.5 Maunds (One maund equal to about 40 kg.)

In the memory of all Brahmin, martyrs was constructed a Tomb, which is still there and is called Dhola-Chabutra.

In the last moments of the war a miracle happened. Their Kuldevi Rohini Mata appeared and ordered them to leave Pali and settle else-where. Paliwal Gunvasaji was the chief of the Paliwals. They all agreed to obey the orders of their Kuldevi. Gangadevji was son of Gunvasaji. All left Pali under the leadership of Gangadevaji and established a new city named Gandoj in V. 1249. A temple and atank were also constructed there in V. 1297.

Jain monks came to the city and enlightened the said family and converted its members into Oswals and named their gotra Gundesha or Gundecha.

Some Gundechas left Gundoj in V. 1410, and settled in the city of Arnod, and then settled in Marwar, so they were named Arnodaiyi. In the same way was the Malviya gotra named. There are 35 Sub-Gotras of Gundecha.

The Sevags of Udaipur declared that the persons of Gundecha and its sub-Gotras are originally Brahmins, so they must not be included in the Oswals, therefore they filed a suit in the court. Judge ruled that they were Oswals, But Oswal samaj refused to have any family relations with them. This issue was taken up at 2nd All India Oswal Mahasammelan of 20th century. i.e. in 1934. The Sammela set up a commission. The Commission has declared that they are Oswals. Then they became a part of Oswals.

Acharya Shri Deosuri of Upkeshgachh enlightened Padihar Rao Ladhi at Pavagarh in V. 1026 and named the new gotra Gundecha. Its sub-gotras are Gagoliya, and Vagani. Kuldevi of these gotras is shri Rohini Mata of Gundoj.
