Origins

Jadejas dynasty ruled major parts of present day Gujarat,notably Kutch, Nawanagar, Rajkot, Morbi, Gondal and Dhrol. The dominant races in Kutch previous to the 9th century of Christian era were the Chavda, Kathees and Waghela, they ruled the western, central and the eastern parts of Kutch respectively. The reigning Prince of Nagar Thatta in Sindh towards the end of 8th century AD was Lakho Ghuraro. He had eight sons by two wives, the eldest son being Unad from the first wife and the other being Mod by a wife from Chawda tribe. As Unad was the eldest, he succeeded the throne by virtue of his primogeniture. Shortly afterwards brothers Mod and Manai started planning against the life of Unad in order to usurp his throne. However they did not succeed and found it necessary to go into exile with their followers to Kutch where they had maternal relations with the Chawda tribe.This was the first historically noted foray of Samma Rajputs of Sind in Kutch.After arrival in Kutch, Mod had a dispute with his maternal Uncle Chawda Whagum, The ruler of Eastern Kutch, and was killed by Mod, thereafter, Mod assumed the sovereignty of the province. There is no concrete information available for the period that followed except the names of the rulers up to five generations. They were Jam Mod, Jam Saad, Jam Phool, Jam Lakho Phoolani and Jam Pooeronjee. It is important to note here that Lakho Phoolani is the most revered and cherished warrior in the history of Kutch and Saurashtra. Jam Pooeronjee was a very cruel ruler and created despair and apathy among his dominion until he was killed by Jakhs. During this time the direct descendents of Jam Unad in Nagar Thatta Sind was Jam Jada, as he did not have any legitimate heir to the throne he adopted his brothers son Lakho, however, after adopting Lakho, Jam Jadas wife gave birth to a child named Ghao, As Jam Jada had already adopted lakho, he decided to divide his dominion equally among both his legitimate son Ghao and adopted son Lakho, however after the demise of Jam Jada, Ghao refused to give any share to Lakho and was forced to leave Sind with his twin brother Lakhiar and well wishers. Lakho and Lakhiar ventured into Kutch and slowly regained the territories in control of Chavdas, as Lakhiar was childless, Lakho named his territory after his brother and called it Lakhiarviro. As Lakho was adopted by Jam Jada, the descendants of this Lakho Jadani were called Jadejas. The name Jadeja means “Belonging to Jada” in the Sindhi and Kutchi language, and is pronounced as “Jaa day jaa.

History

In vikram samvat 683, present day egypt was called ‘missar’, and there was one state in missar called “shonitpur”, which was rulled by great king Jam Devendra Sama.His fore father were given title ‘Jam’ by emperor of Iran.Inthat year v.s.683, Sonitpur was attacked by Omar Khalifa, and King Devendra was defeated in that battle of sonitpur.Omar Khalifa offered the eldest son Aspat of Devendra the Throne of Sonitpur with the condition that Aspat will have to convert to Islam. So Aspat converted to Islam and became king of sonitpur. Three other brothers Gajpat,Narpat and Bhupat refused to get converted to Islam and they migrated to present day Afghanistan. They captured Gazni by defeating king Firozshah. And Jam Narpat was made King of Gaznee. He ruled a major part of Afaghanistan from Gazni for 18 years. After that in a war with Badshah of Kabul,he was defeated and he became Martyr.His son Samaji migrated to present day Sindh. (Pakistan.) They were all called “Sama” Rajputs at that time. The King of Sama Rajput was called Jam.Since that many many generations of Sama Rajputs rulled Sindh.Thier capital was “Sama nagar” or ‘Nagar-Thaththa’,100 k.m. from Karachi.,still one can see remains of ThaThaa, about 100 k.m from Karachi.around 800 v.s. ,there was very famous samrat “lakho Ghuraro” who defeated the king of kABUL also.The eldest son of Lakho Ghuraro Jam Mod sama had captured Kutchha in v.s. 875, ‘Gutaree gadh’ was its capital at that time.After that Sama Rajputs ruled Kutchha for about 200 years till v.s. 1075. The son of Mod,jam Sad, constructed great fort “kanthkot”.The greatest Ruler was Jam Lakho Fulani who rulled for 99 yers, and became martyr in a battle with mulraj solanki in Atkot( 50 k.m from Rajkot)in v.s.1035. In v.s.1185, Jam Jadaji became king of Sama nagar,sindh. He had no sons. So he adopted two sons of his Younger brother Veraji; Lakhaji and Lakhiyarji. So The names of Lakhaji and Lakhiyarji were changed to Lakhaji ‘Jadeja’, means ‘son of Jadaji. Thereafter all descendents were named ‘Jadeja’, means sons of Jadaji. This Jam Lakhaji also called Lakha Jadani, captured again Kutchchha in v.s.1203 and established his capital in “lakhiyar veero” named after his younger brother Lakhiyarji. Jam Lakho jadani is attributed to the surname Jadeja being adopted for all his descendants. Lakho Jadani reigned in Kutch between AD 1147–1175 and had one heir to the gaddi (throne), Jam Rato Raydhan, Rato means Red in Kutchi and he was so called because he used to tie a red cloth across his turban to prevent it from dislodging during battles. Jam Rato Raydhan had four sons namely, J, Dedaji, Hothiji and Gajanji and Odhaji they were given the territories of , Kanthkot, Gajod and Bara and main capital lakhiyar veero respectively in Kutch. As Othaji was the youngest and even then he was selected as occupying the main crown by GURU MAMAIYA MATANG, he ascended to the throne and the rest became a part of Bhayyat or the Brotherhood, Bhayyat is the term used for all the descendants of the royal family who own and control their own domains allocated to them within the state and adhere to the feudal system. Over the years, there were constant skirmishes due to INJUSTICE to THE elder brothers by MAMA MATANG that marred within these houses, until they merged in two groups of Othaji and Gajanji. The first incident among these which changed the history of kutch is the murder of Jam Hamirji of Lakhiarviro, chief of YOUNGER branch of Jadeja and descendant of Othaji, by Jam Rawal of Bara-TERA. It is believed that Jam Rawal attributed the murder of his father Jam Lakhaji to Hamirji, as he was killed within the territory of Lakhiarviro, and on the pretense of resolving the dispute between the two branches, took a fake oath of Maa Aashapura, the supreme deity of Jadejas, invited Hamirji for a meal and killed him by deceit. During this time Alioji and Khengarji, two sons of Hamirji were in Ahmedabad and escaped the complete destruction of the royal family perpetuated by Jam Rawal,thereafter Jam Rawal usurped the throne of Kutch and reigned with supreme authority.Thereafter Jam rawal captured Majority of area Of Saurashtra by defeating all kings af that area a great kingdom” Navanagar” was established, the capital city was called Jamnagar,which is still a promonent city of Saurashtra.Jamnagar was founded by jam Rawal on 7th day of shrawan mounth of first quarter of v.s. 1596.The Jam Rawal was never defeated in his life in any battle.In v.s.1606, Jam Rawal defeated combined forces of all kings of Saurashtra and Gujrat ,even Sultan of Ahmedabad supported opposition by giving 140 ‘guns’,which Jam Rawal did not possess.Even Then Jam Rawal defeated all in great battle of “Mithoi”! the site near present day refinery of reliance.In that Battle the younger brother of jam Rawal: Hardholji became Martyr.It was a great battle “MITHOI BATTLE”.The combined forces of all kings of saurashtra and Gujrat with support of sultan of ahmedabad, was about 2,50,000 in numbers and army of Jam Rawal was about 1,50,000. combined forces had 140 big guns ‘topas’, none in possession of Jam Rawal’s army. There was a meeting of ‘think tank’ of Jam Rawal’s army before battle started, in which it was decided that ‘we can only win the battle if we can neutralise the power of ‘guns’! If a particular screw is fitted at specific site of a big Gun, a Gun can not fire! So a huge meeting of all armymen of Jam Rawal,s army was called ,in which a ‘Beedu’ was circulated in which it was declared ” Is there any brave Rajput who can fit a screw in all the 140 big guns of combined enemy forces? That brave Rajput will be awarded with 12 villages! according to the principles of ‘beedu’, if nobody accepts that challenge, then a holi brahmin-man is killed in front of whole meeting! and the ‘great sin’ of brahma-hatya applies to all the people present in the meeting. AND also it is declared there is ‘no any brave person’ in this clan!The beedu is circulated maximally four times!Then even if no body accepts challenge , a holy brahmin man is killed! Nobody took challenge till three times, but on fourth circulation,one great brave man TOGAJI SODHA took up the challeng along with three JADEJA rajputs,and went to opposition camps in name of strangers,eager to know about ,’big-guns’!With great bravery,chivalry and skills TOGAJI SODHA and his other three collegues, made all the 140 big guns of enemies totally ‘useless’! In later part, when enemies realised, there was fierce fight between soldiers of enemies and these brave 4 persons of Army of Jam Rawal. There were 84 wounds in body of TOGAJI SODHA ,when he came back after successfully completing the task of making all the 140 big guns invalid.!TOGAJI SODHA was one of the greatest war hero of that century in the world at that time! Jam Rawals army had quite few of them. There was a great panic in the camp of combined forces once they realised that ‘ only 4 soldiers’ of Jam Rawal’s army made all of our guns invalid, then what will happen if all 1,50,000 soldiers come to fight us! As a last resort, a huge meeting of all 2,50,000 soldiers of combined forces was called and acting in same way as Jam Rawal’s strategy, they also circulated a ‘beedu’, that ‘ Is there any brave person in our clan who can bring cut head of Jam Rawal?’ A soldier named Karsanji took up the challenge. Karsanji went by putting a white flag on his ‘bhalo’, {a weapon similar to that bused by Maharan Pratap.}. A white cloth suggesta that ‘we want to surrender!’ So he was allowed to go to deepest part of army camp of Jam Rawal. Karsanji insisted that he will personally hand over the message to Jam Rawal only, not to any body else. HARDHOLJI, younger brother of Jam Rawal, and also commander of Jam Rawal’s army, told Karsanji that ” I am Jam Rawal, give me ur message” ! Karsanji thoght he is Jam Rawal, so he immediately took his Bhalo and a strong blow of bhalo was thrown on Hardholji and he was severely hurt and later died and became martyr. Jam Rawal was very furious and ordered to kill Karsanji, but by that time Karsanji ran very very fast on his horse and went out of army camp.There was a young boy of 16 years name Meramanji Hala {a sub-branch of jadeja rajputs} was busy in bathing his horse in river ‘SINHAN’,name OF HORSE WAS “Patti”, a female horse.He heard the noise and show a person running away and hundreds of people shouting and running after him some half kilometeres distance. He soon realised and immediately rided his horse ” patti” and ran after enemy soldier Karsanji.There was a great race and still some good distance was there between him and enemy. In between came river-pit some 50 feet wide, MERAMANJI asked his horse ‘patti’, that ‘this is the time of test of bravery for Hala CLAN OF jADEJA, and it is in ur hand’! The Patti horse jumped 50 feet river-pit and Meramanji Hala jadeja stood up on horse and threw his ‘SANG’( A weapon just like Bhalo ,but only contains iron,no wood with great weight about 50 to 100 kg.) on Karsanji. The Sang of Karsanji pierced through the Karsanji,his horse and went deep into the soil! This was the force of one of the greatest warroirs of the century Meramanji Hala Jadeja ! Then thousands of soldiers came and Jam Rawal came and show the bravery, chivalry of Meramanji. Jam Rawal was never a poet, but after seeing this great bravery, there were spontaneous words from mouth of Jam Rawal ” HALAJI TARA HATH VAKHANU KE PATTI TARA PAGALA VAKHANU ” Means what to praise? Whether I should praise the hands of meramanji Halaji or the legs of Patti horse! I am confused! And these words became the words of great bravery song of Gujrati Language,inspiring lacs and crores of people since centuries to fight for the Nation. ( ref: ‘Yadu-vansh prakash’ by: Kavi Mavdanji Ratnu, ‘Sarashtra no itihas’ by Sambhu prasad desai,Jadeja Vansh ane vasundhara. by Abhesang Barot). ! younger brother Hardholji was made king of Dhrol state by Jam Rawal in 1575 itself.after Jam Rawal,Jam vibhaji became King of Navanagar. After vibhaji Jam Sataji-1 became the king of Navanagar. He was again a very great warrior and Defeated great Emperor Akbar of Delhi twice. In a battle of Junagadh,near ‘Majevadi’ village ground in v.s. 1633, Jam Sattaji defeated the Moghul Akbar’s army chasing Muzffarshah-3 who was defeated in a battle with moghul army. 3335 horses and 52 elephants of Moghul army were captured by Jam Sattaji’s Commander in chief. Bhanji Dal.Keeping this inbsult in mind, Akbar attacked Jam Sattaji in 1640 again near ‘Tamachan’ village, ( AT present near Und irrigation dam) and Again Akbar’s army was badly defeated!.The very very furious Akbar dismssed suba of ahmedabd and Aziz Koko was newly appointed as governor ‘subo’ of ahmedabad,gujrat. and Jam sattaji was attacked with a huge army of 90,000 of soldiers.Off course in this famous battle ‘Bhucharmori’,near Dhrol, jam Sattaji was defeated, But akbar has to compromised with this famous king Jam Sattaji just one and half year later.and again Jam SATTAJI was the king of Navanagar.Even in famous book”Akbarnaama”, Akbar wrote ‘ Satta was very powerful and ‘notorious’ keeping army of 30,000.” After defeating Akbar’ army in v.s.1633, in battle of Majevadi,Junagadh, Jam Sattaji was given title of ” Paschim Bharat NO Badshah” by local people and local poets etc.

The Khengarji,who was inheriting kutchha, was only 15 years old when his father was murdered, he enlisted in to the army of Mahmud Begada, during one Royal Hunting party, Khengar killed a lion and saved the life of Sultan for which he was asked to name his reward, the prime ambition of Khengar was to regain Kutch and hence he asked for support to fight Jam Rawal, whereby, he was given 1000 soldiers and complete access to Morvi and given a title of Rao by the sultan Mohamad of Ahmedabad. Rao Khengar with the support of well wishers within Kutch and Morvi fought with Jam Rawal and slowly started gaining the territories of Rapar and nearby villages, as Khengar was the rightful heir to the throne he was welcomed and dissent towards Jam Rawal grew within the state of Kutch. Jam Rawal was ardent devotee of Maa Ashapura,it is believed that the Goddess indicated Jam Rawal to leave Kutch and establish himself at Halar (Saurashtra), and that she will support him in this venture.Jam Rawal set out for Saurashtra and established himself at Nawanagar. Khengar became the 1st Rao of Kutch in AD 1549 and established Bhuj as Capital.

Coat of Arms,State of Kutch

The first four Raos of Kutch ascended the throne in regular succession according to primogeniture, however after Rao Khengarji II died, there was a break in succession, and in order to prevent the throne being given to Khengarjis son by a Muslim mistress, the Bhayyat instated Tamachiji who was the second son of Rao Khengarjis younger brother.

Rulers Accession
Rao Khengarji AD 1549
Rao Bharmalji AD 1585
Rao Bhojrajji AD 1631
Rao Khengarji II AD 1645
Rao Tamachiji AD 1654
Rao Raydhunji AD 1665

After the demise of Rao Raydhunji this regularity of succession was again deviated, Raydhunji had three sons, Ravaji,Nagulji and Pragji.Ravaji the eldest son was murdered by Sodha rajputs, his second brother Nagulji had died of natural causes before, both the brothers,however had left sons, who by right were entitled to succeed the throne of kutch, but as they were young, Pragji eventually usurped the throne of Kutch and became Maharoa Pragmulji. Kayanji, the eldest son of murdered Ravaji was given Morvi, from where he unsuccessfully tried many a times to regain his rightful throne of Kutch. The descendants of Kanyoji Jadeja settled in Morvi and were called Kanyani. Thus The State of Morvi was formed.

Jam Rawal was the founder of Nawanagar, his descendants branched out and formed the state of Rajkot,and Dhrol,The descendants of Royal family of Rajkot formed Princely state of Gondal. This Genealogy is still maintained today, by the Barots of respective Jadeja Branches,and every single person in Jadeja clan can trace their ancestry through to Jam Rato Raydhun.

    Jaymataji bro… nice work, but i have few points to share:
    1) The information here about JADEJA is originally available on other well known website as it is!!! so why others need to visit our website??? is there any new thing or any better information?
    2) So as information of other vansh & states readly available with the AGRYS( at kuldevi mandir or Gandhinagar), why r u not trying to refer that, which is more reliable?

    I know it is not easy to transform the details available in books to the website, but atleast u should assure visitors that details available on this website is more reliable than ny other source.

    I hope this sharing will help positively.

    i am a student Of NIFT ,gandhinagar and we have been assigned a task to research and document about the Attire,clothing,culture of the rajputs of gujarat.We need to do an extensive research about the same.My group has been assigned to research and cover the JADEJA rajputs. We have already visited Rajkot,jamnagar, morbi and Gondal ,and got useful information from the palaces and heritage museum.
    I would be obliged if people here can help us more regarding the same.We need help about the details of the costume,the local names,pictures,traditions and culture associated with it, stories related to clothing, male and female costume, jewellery, accesories, foot wear, head gear, etc
    Please help us document about the History and tradition of the rajputs.

    Dear Dr.Jadeja,
    Jay Mataji.
    I am very impressed to read your well researched History. I understand my forefathers
    were brought from Kutch to Dhrol by the then Maharaja. I belong to Rajgor(Rajyapurohit) community. My surname is Khetia. Rajgor Families were supposed to perform religious duties by the Maharajas. I am trying to trace My Family History & descendants. I am sure you may have some sort of documentations of our Community.
    May I ask you to help me Sir?

    Khama gani Bapune.
    while searching some more info on ‘khichi” Rajput. I ended up on your great web site, I have a few questions for you Respected Bapu.

    1, Jadeja, Parmar, Rathor, Gohil are the Khichi Rajput ?

    2, in the last 1000 years can you give any battles where Jadeja or any Rajput fought against Mogul or British to protect their motherland especially in Gujarat ?
    3, did any so called “Rajput Khoomari” did they take any part in India freedom moments from any Royal family? I am not talking here a few pictures with Mahatma Gandhi or Meeting him. I am talking openly opposing British rule not even then even after the independence of India to today , can you give any published statement showing showing any Royals Publicly criticizing British Rule.
    I am collecting info on this issue and to give it a fair assessment of our History , there is no better source than you.

    I know about Rana Pratap and jhasi Ki rani however I would love hear about Gujarat from you.

    I am surprised to see a complete copy of Wikepedia article Jadeja which was painstakingly gathered by me, and is reproduced here including the pictures which I took at Bhuj palace, which have been produced here.
    the author of the whole article in Wikepedia was me “Khengar”
    The sketch of Barvaji, representing jadeja rajputs was again selected by me and so was the whole history and origins of the clan. except for the history of Jamnagar,

    Neverthless, I am not disappointed, at least our brothers know the history and our origins by visitng this site.

    Since you have undertaken to publish this information, it would be good if you can dig the history and details of Jadeja vansh of Rajkot, Dhrol and Gondal.

    When we talk about Kutch no Itihas, it is not as it mantion itihas of SOME RECENT kINGS, itihas goes beyond that
    1) itihas written in Books of few centuries
    2) Itihas hidden underground, of Archeology and Purans of few thousands of year,
    3) Itihas hidden in stone formation – Geological History of Kutch in Millions of years.

    Also when a History of people are said , it is incoplete when not explained correctly
    Presently ONLY one clan is shown – is that all?

    What about the people of KUTCH? every one in kutch is arrived from oiut of kutch and migrated to Kutch – So who is Original KUTCHies?

    No one has searched for Mauryan in KUTCH!
    Actually None has explained the all details of Kshatriyas ,
    There are 36 KULs of Kshatriya’s all have their differen Kuldevies,

    Outy of those 36 Kuls ONLY one is Chandravanshi, and Amongst the Chandravanshi Kul Jadeja is only on CLAN ONLY.

    Kutch has Many Kshatriya Kuls are still present , Lohana are Raghuvanshi – Kshtriya Kul,
    Kanbies are Kadhal Khatriya

    So actually need to go in details of all 36 Kshatriya Kuls and each in details with Sub Clan system.
    Parmar, Chavda, dabhi etsc all are Khatriya Kuls of those 36 Kuls

    2) Jadeja also has surname MOD (from Modji) – SO Mod family has records of ancestry,. But I can not trace any family of MANAI brothers of Mods, So any one knows the Family of MANAI, ancestry details?

    3) In KANTHKOT – mod made one well called MOD KUWA in bottom of Velly of KUTHKOT, has anu one visted the well – any Pictures?

    4) Guntali Gadh had PADIAS of 7 SANDHs but Now Only 1-2 is seen – where are the other padiyas?
