History of Bhinchar Gotra

M.K. Azad writes that the original habitation of Bhinchar Gotra people was in Gujarat. Some ruler from Sambhar settled Bhinchawa village. They had war with Borawar Rajput ruler. This ruler took away Kalwa from Dukiya Jats. Bhichars opposed this. [6]

One family of Bhinchars lived with Kukana Jats of Kukanwali. Then they settled in Nalot. Later they founded ‘Bhincharon Ka Bas’. [7]


Kesar Singh Bhinchar of this gotra was a great warrior. One Rajput lady was his dharmbahin. Shekhawats took away cows of this lady. On the request of Rajput lady Kesar Singh followed the thieves. He encountered them at Mundwara fought with them bravely with sword and got back cows from them. Kesar Singh was returning back with cows when the enemies attacked him from behind when he was unprepared. His head was chopped off. Even after chopping of head he moved headless on horse up to ‘Lamba Kotda’. This news spread in the area like jungle fire. When the Rajput lady learnt it she rushed to the spot and tied a rakhi thread to him. Then only his head felled on ground. Rajputs and Bhinchars constructed a chhatri on the Samadhi of Kesar Singh Bhinchar here. This chhatri is very sacred today. [8]

Bhinchars came to Dhakoli in samvat 1982 from Modiawat to ‘Bhincharon Ki Dhani’ and finally to Dhankoli.[9]
