History

Bharhut inscriptions[8] have an Inscriptions on Rails about Sepat clan:

41. Aya Jāto Sepeṭakino Suchi dānam. Meaning - " Rail-gift of the reverend Jāta Sepeṭaki."

The term Sepatiko occurs in the Arian Pali inscription of Taxila, where, according to Professor Dowson, it is the name of some " building or establishment." It is probable, therefore, that Sepetakino is the title of the reverend Jata, as keeper or guardian of the Sepaṭiko.

According to James Todd[9] Sepat is included in the list of Thirty Six Royal Races.

They migrated from Haryana to Rajasthan and till date they are living in Jaipur.

Minister Shipātaka in Rajatarangini

Rajatarangini[10] writes that on the death of Phalguna, the king of Rajapuri became very insolent, which led to an attack on him by the ministers of Kashmira. In the battle which ensued with Prithvipala, commander of the Rajapuri forces, many were destroyed on either side. Two of the ministers of Kashmira Shipātaka and Hansaraja perished. (VI:166) (ShipatakaSepat)

River Kshiptika in Rajatarangini

Rajatarangini[11] tells us ...When Bhikshachara was at Mayagrama, the people of Lohara came out and fought with the king's soldiers who were at Amareshvara. In the fierce battle that took place near the town of Hiranyapura, the men of Lohara killed Vinayakadeva and other leaders of the king's army. Early in the battle, the enemy captured a fine mare belonging to the king, and thought that he had got the king's good fortune. On the banks of the Kshiptika, near the capital, Prithvihara killed many good soldiers of the king. Though Tilaka was at Vijayesha, the Damaras who dwelt at Svāngāchiholaḍa came and fought a battle on the banks of the Mahasarit (great river.) They besieged the city in some places, they burnt the inhabitants in sonic places, they plundered them and yelled day and night. (VIII,p.62-63)


Rajatarangini[12] tells us amidst loud shouts and sounds of bheri which filled all sides, Sussala entered the capital. He returned after six months and twelve days, on the third bright lunar day of Jyaishtha in the year 97. Before entering the kingdom, Sussala with the Lavanyas searched for and found Bhikshachara who had fled to the banks of the Kshiptika and with Prithvihara had gone over to the other side of the Stream.(VIII,p.81-82)


Rajatarangini[13] tells us....At Kramarajya Rilhana subdued Kalyanavara and others; and Ananda, son of Ananta, became lord of Dvara. The powerful Prithvihara having impaled Siṃha fought with Janakasimha and others on the banks of the Kshiptika.(VIII,p.85)


Rajatarangini[14] tells us....Bhikshu pitched his camp on the banks of the Kshiptika, as Rama had assembled his monkeys on the shores of the sea. The Damaras brought trees from the king's garden for fuel for cooking, and grass from his stable for their horses' food. When Prithvihara, after having assembled the lawless inhabitants of Madavarajya, began to collect an army at Vijayakshetra, the king took courage, and in the month of Vaishakha ordered Prajji and others to attack Mallakoshta. Prajji fell on him with valor. In this sudden attack many were wounded, made insensible and killed and some with difficulty fled crossing over the bridge. When Prajji was engaged in the battle with Mallakoshta, Manujeshvara, the younger brother of Prithvihara, drove out Sujji from the city and entered it. But not being able to cross over to the other side of the Vitasta, as the bridge was broken, he burnt the houses on his side, and reached Kshiptika. (VIII,p.90)


Rajatarangini[15] tells ... Many fights were then fought, and there never was heroism and valor tested as on this day. The enemies thought that the army of Lohara had come, and therefore could fight no more. On that day of trouble, the king and Bhikshu felt each others strength.

Prithvihara ordered the Madava soldiers to keep on fighting there, while he himself marched along the banks of the Kshiptika and attacked Yashoraja who had come from a foreign country, and whom the king had made lord of Mandala that he might overcome the enemies. (VIII,p.95)


Rajatarangini[16] tells ... The king followed by Yashoraja gained a victory over the Damaras, some of whom came over to him and some were dispersed. Prithvihara with Bhikshu retired to his own place, and the king in pursuit of Mallakoshta went to Amareshvara. In the meantime Mallakoshta sent robbers,* by night who burnt the uninhabited capital near Sadashiva. Again Prithvihara came out several times to fight, and he was met by Prajji, Sujji and others on the banks of the Kshiptika. He repeatedly burnt the houses in the capital and turned the beautiful bank of the Vitasta to a desert. (VIII,p.96)


Rajatarangini[17] tells ... Prithvihara who had led the Damaras in battle in different places now reached the banks of the Kshiptika and engaged himself in battle. The followers of Bhikshu who were there behaved very gallantly, and did not allow the enemy to make, head. (VIII,p.99)


Rajatarangini[18] tells us ... Sanjapala, who had arrived at that place of disturbance, was speedily sent by the king to destroy Rilhana and Ulhana. Rilhana apprehended that Sanjapala had fled from the road ; and arrived after wandering about the banks of the Kshiptika. (p.192) (KshiptikaSepat)


Rajatarangini[19] tells....Bhaṅgileya and other Damaras meditated an attack on the town of Shankaravarmma from the Kshiptika to the Samala. Trillaka and others calculated that they would reach the banks of the great river, and that the Damaras of Nilashva would commence hostility outside the town. (p.289)
