Origin of Our Cast

Dhanpal Vaishya was the Prime Minister of the King of Khandela Janapada (Sikar). His four off springs established four castes– Saravagi was established by Sunda, Khandelwal by Khanda, Maheshwari by Mahesha; and Vijayvargiya by Vija. All these four castes claim their origin to be Khandela Janapada, but any other evidence does not confirm the theory of four sons. Some of the Khandela scholars accept their origin from the two brothers – Khanda and Vija. Both these castes have 72 gotras each, out of which 13 gotras of both the castes have similarity among them.

It is on record that in 363 AD, Kunwar Jayant Singh developed some differences with his father, the ruler of Khandela Janapada. Consequently, Kunwar Jayant Singh was ordered to be exiled by the ruler. Vija son of the Prime Minister of the king, along with his 71 supporters followed Kunwar Jayant Singh; they made their first halt at Jakheri. There, they made a plan and invaded the Kingdom of Ranthambhaur and succeeded in annexing the Kingdom. Greatly impressed by the devotion and valor of his followers, Kunwar Jayant Singh named the entire group as Vijayvargia.

These 72 men altogether, became the forerunners of the 72 clans. Later, 100 more gotras also joined them under the kingdom of Ranthambhaur; thus the original number of 72 gotras rose to 172 gotras in due course. In the year 1906-07, Pithashah organized a huge conglomeration of the entire gotras of this caste at Pipalu village of Tonk (Rajasthan). Foundation of 16 temples was laid down consequent to this meeting. Greatly impressed by the initiative taken by Pithashah, the prominent personalities attending the conglomeration conferred the title of ‘Chaudhary’ on Pithasha. Specialists called ‘Raos’ were given the responsibility of maintaining the history and record of their caste and gotras.

The main gotras of Vijayvargias’ are: Khunteta, Chaudhary, Patodiya, Kapadi, Parva, Nayakwal, etc. Vijayvargias’ are basically Vaishnava, but there are isolated examples of them being Shivas also. In the field of spiritualism also Vijayvargias’ are known to have been blessed by the ‘Ramsnehi Sect’; Swami Shri Ramacharan ji Maharaj was its founder. Archaeological writings bear the witness that ‘Meerabai’ the keen devotee of Lord Krishna, hailed from Vijayvargia caste. Under the patronage and motivation of Shri Ramcharan Ji Maharaj, Vijayvargias’ have played a stellar role in the building of social structure and performed various memorable deeds in the religious field as well. The famous temple of ‘Girdhar Gopal’ at Pushkar (Ajmer), which has made Meerabai an immortal, is a gift from this caste.

Hamare Sahyogi

Dear Vijayvargia Bandhu,

“That contribution is very insignificant, which you donate from your savings. True contribution manifests when you donate from your own life.  

It is good if you donate when someone asks for it. Yet, it is the best when you contribute following your heart's voice even without solicitation from anyone.”

We would like to thank to all the Contributories/Sahyogi who have contributed funds for the annual social functions of VIJAYVARGIA (VAISHYA) SAMAJ, MUMBAI. This section contains the Information/List of all our Sahyogi/Contributories. CLICK HERE to see the list.
