Gurjar Kshatriyas are a group of Kshatriya[8] clans who migrated from Rajasthan in the early 7th century AD. Kadia Kshatriyas first entered into Saurashtra at that time and founded thirty-six villages in the area, while others moved further into Kutch. We are one of the Kshatriya communities having/had land assets and many of us still have farmlands in our villages in Gujarat even if we are today engaged in various different occupations.

1) In our families a child is born and on 6th day, the Chhathi ceremony is conducted on the low stool (Bajoth) along with lighted Deep, Pen and ink-pot are placed. Pen and ink-pot signifies that the child is entitled to education. Statue of horse rider with a sword in his hand is also placed on the Bajoth. Horse rider with sword symbolises that the child is from Kshatriya family.

2) In our families when the young male Kshatriya is getting married, he is holding a sword in his right hand. Sword is Kshatriya’s weapon that is one of the symbolic statuses within our Indian social fabric as a warrior, protector and administrator of the community and the society.
  +
  +
3) All our families have historical records of some outstanding persons who died defending their villages and we remember them as our Shurapuras and have their Padias either in the public chowks of our villages or far out at boundaries of the villages. We have been preserving these symbolic stone Padias and recently we have now properly built around these Padias as places of worship.
  +
  +
4) As other Kshatriya communities, each families of our community have their Gotra named after one of the seven Rishis such as Gauttam, Kaushik and others. We also have our Kuldevis such as Chamunda Ma, Khodiar Ma and others attached to the families whom they worship and these symbolises our Kshatriya character.
