Bikaner (बिकानेर) is a famous historical place and headquarters of the district in Rajasthan.

Founder

Bikaner was land of Nehra Jat. Rao Bika made it his capital in in 1489. The Nehra Jat had put a condition that he would give land for the capital of Rathores only if his surname appears in the name of the town being founded. Hence the name, Bika + Naira= Bikaner.[1]

Beeka founded his capital, Bikaner, on the 15th Baisakh, S. 1545 (A.D. 1489), thirty years after his departure from the parental roof at Mandor. [2]

History

V. S. Agrawala[3] writes that Ashtadhyayi of Panini mentions janapada Sālva (शाल्व) (IV.2.135). It was confined to limited geographical horizon in the central and north eastern Punjab. Shalva may coincide with the territory extending from Alwar to north Bikaner. Salvas were ancient people who migrated from west through Baluchistan and Sindh where they left traces in the form of Śālvakāgiri, the present Hala mountain, and then advancing towards north Sauvira and along the Saraswati and finally settled in north Rajasthan.


In 1901 census, the most numerous caste in Bikaner State was that of the Jats, who numbered 133,000, or more than 22 per cent of the total. As noticed above, they held a considerable portion of the territory prior to the Rathor conquest, and the headman of the Godara clan still has the privilege of placing the tika or mark of inauguration on the forehead of each new chief of Bikaner.


Ram Sarup Joon[4] writes that ....Samudra Gupta conquered the whole of Punjab and a major part of India. The clans defeated by him included

Antiquity of the tract: Rajasthan Distict Gazetteers Bikaner [5] writes that The area now comprising the district of Bikaner formed a part of the erstwhile princely State of Bikaner, which was founded by Rao Bika, a Rathor prince, in the fifteenth century A.D. The antiquity of the tract is, however, much older and a reference about it is available in the Mahabharata. For sometime the area remained the cradle of the migrant Yaudheyas. When the Rathors appeared on the scene, the territory was inhabited by various Jat clans. For about half-a-millennium the descendants of Rao Bika ruled over this region with Bikaner town as the seat of their Government.

Pre-History

Rajasthan Distict Gazetteers Bikaner[6] tell us.... The Great Indian Desert (also called Thar) of which Bikaner district forms a part, is believed to have been the bed of a sea, in the pre-historic periods termed by geologists as Jurassic, Cretaceous and Eocene. No date can be assigned as to when it was converted into a dry land. It is surmised that it happened probably sometime in the upper Tertiary. Many centuries after the marsh had completely dried up, some vegetation began to spring up resulting in clusters of shrubs and trees. Many more years rolled by before some habitation was possible in this region, but when and how it happened is not known. The spread of desert in this region is ascribed to comparatively a much later period of history, between 4000 to 1000 B.C. Local tradition regards the holy tank at Kolayat as old as the creation itself.


The early hymns of Rigveda make a frequent mention of three rivers of the Vedic age; namely, Sarasvati, Drishadvati and Shatadru. Of these Sarasvati was a river par-excellence (Naditama) , the banks of which reverberated with the chants of Vedic hymns sung during the performance of many a Yajms. The location of the river is mentioned in between1 Sutlej and Yamuna and it is identified with modern Ghaggar. It constituted, in the Vedic age, a large river-system, wherein flowed Drishadvati (now identified with , Chitang) and Shatadru (modern Sutlej) which rolled on into the ocean. This sacred river, along with its tributaries flowed into the northern part of the erstwhile Bikaner State, which during those days was a fertile valley. In course of time this river-system dried up and the dried up bed is clearly traceable in a westerly direction in Bikaner division till it reaches Hanumangarh which was known as Bhatner.

The valley of Sarasvati and the Drishadvati is very rich in archaeological finds, which are of great chronological and cultural value.

These finds show us glimpses of several millennia of Indian history right from the Harappa period (c. 2300 B.c. to 1750 B.c. as per radio- carbon dates) to comparatively recent times.

[p.20]: Dr. L.P. Tessitory, who had explored the dried up bed of Hakra (recognised as ancient Sarasvati) in 1917-1919, found that the mounds, known locally ther or theri were bare of all vegetation and covered with pieces of broken pottery. He regarded them as Buddhist funeral places of the ancient Yaudheya tribe. Very interesting relics and even complete block of red-burnt clay were detached by Dr. Tessitory from house walls in the villages of Badopal and Rangmahal. He considered these terracotta sculptures as an off-shoot of the Buddhist art of Gandhara. But later explorations, done by Sir Aurel Stein in the year 1941, in the dried up bed of Hakra, have brought to light a number of pre-historic sites in the region of the erstwhile Bikaner State and particularly, the erstwhile Bahawalpur State1 now in Pakistan. Sir Stein is of the view that the area was the seat of a great civilisation now shrouded in mystery, due to its burial under the sand. Sir Stein and Ghosh had found numerous mounds strewn with pot-sherds, large and well-built bricks and actual remains of kilns.

Archaeologically these pottery remains, dug out in the region can be assigned to at least three stages2 of civilisation due to their variety and vividness. The first type of pottery is identical with, or similar to that found at Harappa and Mohanjodaro, and is often painted.

The second type is a grey-ware painted with black designs and belongs to a later period. The third type is painted black-on-red. All these types were not found at a single site, but lay scattered under different theris. As far as we are concerned all these cultures flourished out side the present limits of the district; but the fact 'that the remains of Harappa culture and later Vedic culture were found side by side in this valley suggests the possibility that the two cultures might have come in close contact in this region.

In 1946, Herman Goetz made further studies of the mounds in the region and opined, “it seems much more probable that they are the last remnants of crude mud-houses and forts such as are constructed in this part of India upto the present day. When abandoned or destroyed they slowly disintegrated into these mounds, a process which can be observed even now in the ruins of Hanumangarh (Bhatner)”.3

[p.21]: Dr. Goetz holds that these remains cannot be ascribed to that of Mohanjodaro canon, but to a later type developed from it.

The weight of opinions, favouring ascribing these remains to post-Harappan period ranging between circa 1500 b.c. to 600 b.c, is greater. The painted grey ware occurring in this region, has helped the archeologists in ascertaining the chronology of similar remains found at other places of excavations like Hastinapur, Ujjain and Kosambi (Kosam village near Allahabad). From this similarity it is assumed that this type of ware is associated with the Aryans!, the black and red ware is thought to be of Dravidian origins. Dr. Banerjee1 is of the opinion that “the users of the de-luxe painted grey ware ceramic, who have been provisionally identified with the Aryans and who imbibed and adapted several other ceramic traditions then extant in the country, including a plain variety of the wide spread black and red ware, were responsible for the introduction of the Iron Age in India about 1000 b.c. in the northern plains, and may have transmitted it by degrees to south India as well as through the megalithic folks2 little later”.

These archaeological finds and the cultural history of the region leads us to assume that in the hoary past the people inhabiting this district were perhaps not dissimilar in their ways of life to their neighbours at the border.

Ancient History

Ancient History: In the Mahabharata there are frequent references to Kuru Jangalah and Madreya Jangalah. We may infer, from the old geographical references that Bikaner district formed part of Jangal territory. Unfortunately nothing much has been mentioned in the Mahabharata about the civilisation extant in this region. Nothing is known whether it came under the suzerainty of the various imperial powers that followed namely, the Mauryas, The Greeks, the Kushanas, the Guptas, or the Pratiharas. We give below brief account of some of the tribes that seem to have held sway over this territory in the remote past.

[p.22]:

The Yaudheyas : The untamable and warlike people known as the Yaudheyas are described in the Ashtadhyayi of Panini as ayudh-jivi-Kshatriyas or depending upon arms for their livelihood. The heart of the Yaudheya territory may have been the eastern Punjab, but they dominated over the adjoining tracts of the Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.1 If they can be identified with the Johiyas who inhabited the Johiyawar territory, then it is probable that the northern portion of the erstwhile Bikaner State remained under their rule.

The Gurjara-Pratiharas: It is held by several scholars that the Gurjaras first settled in the Punjab and then moved to northern portion of the Bikaner State and at last settled in Marwar. There they founded the Pratihara dynasty.2 It cannot be ascertained, in the absence of further researches, as to how long they lived or stayed in this region but it is certain that they acquired and consolidated a vast kingdom.

The Chahamanas and the Bhatis: The Pratiharas were followed by Chahamanas (Chauhans), who settled themselves in a more promising part of the territory, east of the Thar desert. They founded their kingdom around Shakambhari (Sambhar). In the meantime, behind the Chahamanas were advancing Bhatis, another tribe in the Thar desert, from the north-west of the territory of the erstwhile Bikaner State.3 They were defeated by the Pratihara King Siluka. They founded the kingdom of Derawar, the capital of which was shifted to Lodorva and ultimately, to Jaisalmer. This new kingdom was much larger than the erstwhile Jaisalmer State and extended4 from Bhatner (Hanumangarh in Ganganagar district now) and Bhatinda up to the vicinity of Gujarat.

Medieval Period

Medieval Period: Until the second half of the 10th century Jangaldesha formed5 a neglected frontier province of the empire of Kannauj. The later Pratihara rulers were not strong enough to look after such a poor country. About 973 a.d. Vigraharaja Chauhan II threw off the

[p.23]: suzerainty of the last Pratiharas. In the meantime the kingdom of Ghazni was founded and its rulers followed the aggressive policy of, the Umayyads and early Abbasids, of encroaching on the “infidel lands”. Thus the Thar desert became a theatre of war from time to time. May be that it remained a neutral zone through which trade between India and West passed, because several old trade routes lay in this area of the desert. Besides this, the armies or bands of tribes also passed through this way.

We know now that due to the important routes lying through this area, many types of people came, stayed and passed through this region. Some of them might have established themselves here. After the advent of the Pratihara dynasty, many new principalities emerged. Different Rajput clans came into prominence viz. Chalukyas (Solankis), Chahamanas (Chauhans), Parmars, Kachhawahas and others. But it cannot be ascertained as to who ruled in this part of the territory during those days. Towns and villages sprang up studded with temples, artificial lakes were constructed in the desert areas to convert it into an oasis. They fortified their hill ridges to safeguard their hearth and home.

The different tribes who inhabited the territory occupied by the erstwhile Bikaner State during medieval ages were the Jats, Johiyas, Bhatis, Mohils, Sankhalas etc. They lived as semi-autonomous tribes especially the Jats, who formed the seven different clans amongst themselves (1) Punia, (2) Godara, (3) Saran, (4) Kaswa, (5) Beniwal, (6) Sihag, and (7) Sohua, but Tod enumerates only six Jat clans i.e , Punia, Godara, Saran, Asiagh, Beniwal and Johiya though this last clan is by some termed a ramification of the Yadu-Bhati Rajputs.

They formed cantons and each canton bore the name of the comrhunity or clan, and was further divided into districts. These people led pastoral life, their wealth being their cattle, and they used to quarrel among themselves.

The Chauhans probably had this area or a portion of it under their sway during their heyday which is evident from the stone-inscriptions engraved on several cenotaphs. Some coins of the Chauhans have also been found and G.H. Ojha1 records that he had discovered a copper coin of Ajayadeva Chauhan in the vicinity of Hanumangarh (then Bhatner, now in Ganganagar district) and on this basis, it can only be assumed that the Chauhans had some kind of influence in this area.


1. Ojha, G.H., The History of Rajjputana, Vol. V, Part I, Ajmer (1939). p. 70.


[p.24]: Mohils- Towards the south-east and east of the Bikaner district were settled in those days, the Rajputs known as Mohils and the area inhabited by them was called Mohilvati. These Mohils have been regarded as one of the branches of the Chauhans.1 Their leader was called a Rana. This has been recorded by Nensi in his Khyata. Later, these Ranas of Mohilvati had developed a feud with the Rathors of Jodhpur. Rao Jodha (the founder of Jodhpur) had attacked and killed Ajit Singh (Mohil). Many battles were fought and the Mohils were rendered weak due to these battles and other internecine feuds. Weak Mohils were attacked by the Jodhpur army and their territory within the Jodhpur boundary sacked and confiscated. But the Mohils did not sit idle. They approached Sultan Bahlol Lodi and with the aid and co-operation of the Muslim General, Saranga Khan, they regained their lost possessions from the Rathors of Jodhpur.2

Another important Rajput clan which was inhabiting this tract, was the Sankhla (Paraniara). They were occupying a portion around Janglu before the advent of Rao Bika (son of Rao Jodha and the founder of Bikaner). The area to the west and north-west of the erstwhile Bikaner State was under the possession of the Bhatis who had the strong principality of Pugal. with whom later on, Bika had to enter into a blood-relationship. Bika had to contend against all these tribes in order to establish himself on a permanent footing.

The dynastic history of the rulers of the erstwhile Bikaner State begins with the heroic exploits of Rao Bika, son of Rao Jodha, the ruler of Marwar. He was born3 in 1438 a.d. Rao Jodha had seventeen sons born of six Ranis. An interesting talc is told of how Rao Bika founded a kingdom and perpetuated his name for ever. It is said that Rao Bika one day entered the durbar late and took his seat beside his uncle, Rao Kandhal with whom he started talking in whispers. Seeing this, Rao Jodha jestingly asked, “what was this secret talk between the uncle and the nephew-were they considering conquering new territory ?” Kandhal took it as a challenge and replied that this would also be accomplished with his blessings. It so happened

2. ibid.,p.71.

3. ibid., p. 90. From another account, the datc is 1440 a.d. while P.W. Powlett in his Gattetteer of the Bikaner State (1874) gives as 1439 A.D. For the subsequent rulers also, the dates of birth, death etc. given by different writers arc at variance with each other.


[p.25]: that at the durbar was present one Napo, a Sankhla Rajput who, intimated that some Sankhla Rajputs had abandoned a part of Janglu territory lying to the north of Jodhpur as they were hard pressed by Bloach incursions. He suggested its occupation. The suggestion was welcomed and Jodha urged his son to launch on this expedition. An expeditionary force was accordingly organised comprising 100 horse and 500 foot. Accompanying1 Bika were his uncles Kandhal, Rupa, Mandan, Mandala and Nathu, his brothers Joga and Bida, Napo the Sankhla, the master of the horse (Sahni) and a number of Mutsaddis (writers). According to Powlett, Bika was provided both with a civil and military staff

The tract which now forms the Bikaner city was perhaps abandoned and its occupation would present no problem but towards its north-west was located a powerful Bhati kingdom; towards its north-east, the Jats had their small settlements. Hisar was the headquarters of the Governor of the Delhi Sultan. On other sides were scattered small chieftainships weak in offensive, but well entrenched in their desert , fortresses to withstand aggression.

Bika marched via Mandauwar, to Deshnoke where there lived a famous Charan woman Karniji, believed to be endowed with supernatural powers. She exercised considerable influence over the neighbouring rajas especially Shekha, the Bhati Rao of Pogal. Bika paid his respects to her who gave her prophetic blessings in the following words “Your power and pelf will be higher than your father's and many a chief will touch your feet.” After this, Bika moved to Chandasar and then to Koramdesar where the idol of Bhairun was installed on the bank of a talao by him. There he declared himself as the raja.

Reaching the deserted tract of Janglu he took possession of 84 villages left by the Sankhlas and started strengthening his army and extending his domination. It is said that on the advice of Karniji, he allied himself with Shekha Bhati, the Rao of Pagal by marrying the latter’s daughter. This alliance gave a foothold to Bika in the Bhati territory. In 1478 A.D. Bika wanted to construct a fort at Koramdesar which was objected to by Rao Shekha. Rao Bika paid no heed to his protestations which led to an estrangement with the Bhatis. Under the leadership of Kalikaran Kehrot, the son of the Rawal Kehar of

[p.26]: Jaisalmer, the dissatisfied Bhatis mustered a strong force and a fierce battle took place in which Bika won the day, but the Bhatis continued their harassing tactics with the result that the Rao gave up his plan to build the fort at Koramdesar and in consultation with Napo Sankh'a, who was believed to be great observer of omens, chose another site. Thus were layed in 1485 AD, the foundations of the fort around which, three years later, in V.S. 1545 (1488 a.d.) the construction of the city of Bikaner was undertaken.

With the establishment of a permanent capital by Bika, the neighbouring tribes began to feel that a new star had arisen in the political firmament of the area. Some of them especially the Godara Jats acknowledged his sovereignty. The allegiance of the Godaras brought Bikaji into conflict with the Sarans, another tribe of the same race who approached the powerful Chief of Sewani to help them. Fight soon ensued between the two Chiefs resulting in an all-out victory for Bika.

As has been stated earlier, the country of the Mohils had been conquered by Jodha and was put under the charge of Bida, brother of Bika. But soon troubles arose. The Mohil chief and Sarang Khan, the subedar of Hisar, combined against him. Bida had offended his father. Finding himself alone and helpless, he asked his brother to render necessary help. He took refuge with his brother who after raising strong army of 8000 men, marched against the enemy. Sarang Khan had to retire in haste to his headquarters after seeing an approaching defeat at the hands of Kandhal. The Mohil country was restored to Bida but he held it as a feudatory of his brother. Dissatisfied Sarang Khan, however, in order to wipe out the blot of the retreat collected a large force and attacked the Rathor chief Kandhal who had created a havoc in the Hisar territory. The latter fought gallantly but fell in action. On hearing this sad news of the demise of his dear uncle, who had been like a second father to him, Bika took an oath to eat bread only after he had avenged the death of Kandhal. He sought help from his father, Jodha, who sent timely help. The combined armies of the Rathors met the enemy at the village of Jhans or Jhansal. Sarang Khan was killed and his army was put to flight.

Bika was asked by his father not to claim succession to his estate but to remain content with what he had won, Bika, however.


[p.27]: wanted to possess the heirlooms and the insignia of royalty brought from Kannauj, in lieu of his foregoing the claim for his father’s patrimony. It is said that Jodha agreed that these would be sent to Bikaner. But after Jodha’s death when Bika demanded them from his successor Rao Suja, the latter showed his reluctance; Bika had to take recourse to arms and invaded Jodhpur which was taken and given up to plunder. Suja took refuge in the fort which was besieged. His mother, then, intervened and came to see Bika, who agreed to raise the siege only if the heirlooms and the royal insignia were handed over to him. The famous siege of Jodhpur was thus raised and Bika brought the coveted articles in triumph.

Bika’s younger brother. Bar Singh, the administrator of Merta, used to plunder the adjoining areas of Ajmer and Sambhar. The Subedar of Ajmer, Mallu Khan, captured him for plundering his villages.

The combined forces of Duda, Suja and Bika advanced and the Subedar released Bar Singh without putting any fight against the approaching army.

Bika in order to prevent further inroads on his territory by the thakur of Khandela, Rirmal, had to measure swords with him. The thakur could not withstand the attack, and fled, leaving the town at the mercy of Bika’s troops who ransacked it getting much spoil. The last expedition led by Rao Bika was against Rewari in which he successfully occupied a considerable portion of the territory which belonged to the Sultan of Delhi. Rirmal the thakur of Khandela, approached the Sultan for help to push back Bika’s forces from Rewari. The Sultan of Delhi sent 4,000 Imperial troops under Nawab Hindal to oust him from the Imperial territory. This joint army attacked Bika who fought with rare courage and valour and inflicted a crushing defeat on the enemy killing both the commanders-Hindal and Rirmal. This was the last of Bika’s military exploits after which he ruled peacefully till his death and without any molestation from neighbouring chiefs. At the time of his death which took place in 1504 a.d, his rule is said to have extended over 3,000 villages.
