Origin of Gotra in Oswals



Acharya Sri Ratna Prabh Suri in the year Veer Sanvat 70 converted Raja Utpaldev of Upkeshpur Pattan (presently known as Osiya) and his entire kingdom into Jains. According to ‘Jain Jati Mahodaya’ Acharya Sriji named 18 Gotras as follow probably based on their original Gotra or business or status.

Tater
Bafna
Karnavat
Balaha
Morakh
Kulahat
Virhat
Shrishrimal
Shreshthi
Sancheti
Aditya
Nag
Bhuri
Bhadra
Chinchat
Kumat

All above were Mahajans in Osiya. In VS 222 a big Mahajan community gathered in Khandela near Jaipur. At that time all Mahajans of Osiya were named as Oswal and all above Gotra became part of Oswal.

According to Yati Rupchandji “Jain Sampradaya Shiksha” the total Gotras of Oswals were 440 and according to Yati Ramlalji “Mahajan Vansh Muktavali” it was 609. According to myth one Bhat had made a list of 1444 Gotra but it is not available. We have published list of above 2700 gotras and origin of more than 800 gotra.
