Origin of name
Village gets name after Doongji Burdak.
The capital of Burdaks Sarnau Fort falls to Delhi Badashah Nasir-ud-din Mahmud (1246–1266) in samvat 1315 (1258 AD). Nasir-ud-din Mahmud had appointed Mom Raj Dhaka of Ganora village as mansabdar. There was tension between Dhakas and Burdaks. Mom Raj Dhaka attacked Burdak capital six times but could not defeat them. He started to conspire to find out the way as 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. The place where Nanakji Burdak was born may be identified with the village - Khori Doongar.
Nanakji begot three sons: Sahraj, Dhanraj and Karma Ram. As per the blessings of family Deity Gusainji, Nanakji along with his sons: Sahraj, Dhanraj and Karma Ram, left village ‘Kharra-Ka-Gothra’ and founded new village Gothra on Akha Teej of samvat 1351 (1294 AD). This village at present is known as Gothra Tagalan.
As per Census-2011 statistics, Khori Doongar village has the total population of 1728 (of which 886 are males while 842 are females).
