Ancient History
Our ancient history begins from Brahmaji, as per Vedas and Purans there are seven Rishi (manas sons) of Brahmaji they are called “Saptarishi”. There names are Marichi, Atri, Angira, Pulastya, Pulah, Kutu & Vashishtha. There was Brahmarishi Angira on the top among seven sons. Maharishi Angira was the founder of the Takshshila University for the training and expansion of Aryian culture. Maharishi Angira was married with two Prachetas Daksha Prajapati daughters named as Sati & Swadha. Maharishi Atharva was born from Devi Sati.

Maharishi Atharva was married with Subha. They born a well famous child Brahaspati. Who became the Guru of God. Brahaspati was the famous in the name of Archieture science. Later on, in Angira hireachy Vishwakarma was born. Vishwakarma was the son of Bhuwan(grand son of Angira). Shri Vishwakarma was born in Magh Shukla Triyodashi.

Shri Vishwakarma ji - Lord of Architecture
Lord Vishwakarma is the presiding deity of all craftsmen and architects. Son of Brahma, he is the divine draftsman of the whole universe, and the official builder of all the gods’ palaces. Vishwakarma is also the designer of all the flying chariots of the gods, and all their weapons. The Mahabharata describes him as “The lord of the arts, executor of a thousand handicrafts, the carpenter of the gods, the most eminent of artisans, the fashioner of all ornaments … and a great and immortal god.” He has four hands, wears a crown, loads of gold jewelry, and holds a water-pot, a book, a noose and craftsman’s tools in his hands. Vishwakarma Puja: Hindus widely regard Vishwakarma as the god of architecture and engineering, and September 16 or 17 every year is celebrated as Vishwakarma Puja — a resolution time for workers and craftsmen to increase productivity and gain divine inspiration for creating novel products. This ritual usually takes place within the factory premises or shop floor, and the otherwise mundane workshops come alive with fiesta. Vishwakarma Puja is also associated with the buoyant custom of flying kites. This occasion in a way also marks the start of the festive season that culminates in Diwali.

Vishwakarma’s Architectural Wonders:
Hindu mythology is full of Vishwakarma’s many architectural wonders. Through the four ‘yugas’, he had built several towns and palaces for the gods. In “Satya yuga”, he built the Swarg Loke, or heaven, the abode of the gods and demigods where Lord Indra rules. Vishwakarma then built the ‘Sone ki Lanka’ in “Treta yuga”, the city of Dwarka in “Dwapar yuga”, and Hastinapur and Indraprastha in the “Kali yuga”.

The Origin
The word Suthar came from the Sanskrit word Sootradhar. According to the Brahma Purana, they are offspring of Vishwakarma. Their main occupation is wood carpentry. The community is vegetarian and avoid drinking. There are about 1444 clans.

According to myth sutradhar (sutra=formulae or mantra, slokas, chants and sutradhar is that who use formula). In ancient times sutradhars were working with sutra for every part of the building. Once god Acharya Vishwakarma went to see the work of his pupil on the site, pupil did mistake, he forgot to place the doors & window in nervousness. He placed opening with hand(manual).after seeing this Acharya crushed (shraap) him that “from now onwards you will work with hand(manual) only “. Lateron building construction started with hand.

Historical resources shows that suthar are the resident of gujrat, rajsthan, maharastra and sindh Pakistan prone and they are originally shilpi (stone carver) and builders of temple and forts but later started in practicing in carpentry as work demand in the society.

The Community History
Originally Vishvikama Family has 1444 Shashans but in sanwat 989 (about 1078 years back) at Sidpur Patan Gujarat was ruled by King Jaysingh S/O Haresingh solanki, He was seriously ill of Leprosy (korrh) and when He was not cured with medical treatment, finally persuade the Pundits and Jyotishi for any other way, and they has suggested that he can be cured if a Mander (Temple) with name “Maha Ruderalya” Temple of Shiva Bhagwan “RUDER” is constructed through the wans of Shri Vishvikarmaji.

As families of suthar community were not available in the area so King asked the Devpalji Bhatt to go Kashipuri, and Mathurapuri where Vishvikarma community was settled to call them and also widely announced that where ever the community is settled they should join hands in the construction work of Temple and also offered good emoluments against their work. So the work for construction of Rudermal Mander was started by 8 persons of four shashans and when they observed that the huge work of construction is not possible by 8 members so they decided to attach some other persons from Rasjput community.

(but before allowing this labor the “SHUDHIKARAN” procedure was adopted & for that the “HAWAN” pooja was performed and the persons engaged in work has accepted the Brahman customs by wearing the “JINAO” and clothes as Brahman communities ) and after good-long period a very beautiful Temple “Mha Ruderalia” was constructed under the management of Gangadevji Jangid.

When the Mandir was successfully completed,and King was cured of illness, then he has granted various prizes to all the working persons, and after that the Jangid community has seeked permission to go back, but the King has suggested them to settle in Gujrat because the Jangid/Suterdhar community was not available in Gujarat and there was need of such workers.

Some of the community persons having less-knowledge accept themselves as Rajput, add the Wansh name of Rajputs as Solanki, Bhati, Chauhan etc. with their name, which is also not correct, we are Brahmins and we have our own identity , Shashans and goter. We have searched and found that only those people living in that area of Rajasthan and desert area of Sind have mis-understanding of accepting them as Rajput and this will be not more than 3% of total Jangid community which is in Millions who are called as Brahamin , they wear “JANOI” and Dhiti, they never use the turban/pagri of Rajput Style , they do not wear Rajput Treta . they do not use opeium/ wine and eat pure vegetarian. And from appearance they looks like Brahmins.
