History

Relation of Kharra with Burdak Gotra

We find connection of Kharras with the history of Burdak clan. All the Burdaks are descendants of sole survivor Nanak Ji Burdak, whose mother was Rambha of Kharra Gotra from ‘Kharra-Ka-Gothra’.

Gusainji temple Gothra Tagalan

As per Bards of Burdak Gotra Mom Raj Dhaka of village Ganora was appointed mansabdar of Delhi Badshah Nasir-ud-din Mahmud (1246–1266). He could not defeat Burdaks of Sarnau in six direct wars. He started conspiracy how to defeat Burdaks. He got the secret information about Burdaks that they all gather and take bath unarmed at Halani Baori at Sarnau on the amavashya tithi of Ashwin month for performing the annual shradha of their ancestors. On such occasion on amavashya tithi of Ashwin month of samvat 1315 (1258 AD) when all Burdaks gathered to take bath unarmed at Halani Baori at Sarnau, Mom Raj Dhaka attacked them with an army of 25000. All Burdaks were killed. The village and Fort of Sarnau was reduced to ashes. It so happened that Rambha of gotra Kharra, the wife of Kunwar Padam Singh Burdak, was not in the Sarnau fort at that time. She was away with his in-laws at village ‘Kharra-Ka-Gothra’ and hence was saved. She had a pregnancy of three months at that time. She gave birth to a child in nanihal village ‘Kharra-Ka-Gothra’ at ‘Dungar ki Ghati’ on chaitra Sudi Navami Samvat 1316 as per blessings of Gusainji. He was named Nanak. He was married to Kushalji Tetarwal’s daughter Mankauri. Burdaks in Rajasthan are descendant of this sole child.


In samvat 1353 Nanakji, Kunwar Sahraj, Dhanraj and Karma Ram left a gauchar land measuring 1111 bigha in the name of Rambha Kharra's father Indraji Kharra and constructed Indolav talab in the name of grandfather Indra Ram at Gothra Tagalan.
