Introduction / History

The Sengar (or Sangar) are one of the Rajput Kshatriya clans. The exact lineage of Sengar is Rishivansh. According to an ancient story, the father of Lord Rama, Raja Dashrath, had given his daughter 'Shanta' to Shringi Rishi. The lineage created from that marriage is Sengar Rajput.


What Are Their Lives Like?

They are mainly found in Kachchh-Gujarat, Pakistan (where they are now Muslim) and in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh in India.


What Are Their Beliefs?

This Sanghar people believe in Jakh Dada (Yaksh Dev). Jakh Dada was a 'gana' or attendant of Lord Shiva. In Kachchh Jakh Dada was believed to have saved this caste around the 7th century, and since then the Sanghar have believed in Jakh Dada whom they built a temple for. Every year Sanghar people and all of Kachchi celebrate the festival of Jakh Dada.
