• Our Origin

  • We, the Rathods of Khambra originally are kshatriyas moved from Rajasthan into Saurastra in early 7th century and later along with a major group entered Kutch in the  12th century and established ourselves at a village called Dhaneti.


  • Later, from 12th century onwards the group moved on to settle between Anjar and Bhuj which resulted in formation of 18 villages and Khambra being one of them. These group of warriors were also highly talented architects and they immensely involved in construction and erection of various historical monuments in kutch region. In fact, most of the monuments documented were built by these Gujar Kshatriyas untill late 1890 and we were labelled as "Mistris" and even after  many centuries, this "Mistry or Kadias" tag still remained with us and we are now known as "Kutch Gurjar Kshatriya Samaj" also as Mistry community of kutch region.


  • Our village Khambra is located about 8 kilometres from the major town "Anjar" and there are many prominent persons who hail from this great village, have made it big during the British rule especially in railway contruction during the years from 1854-1920.
