Boraj is one among these audacious thikanas and among the most prominent Tazmi Thikana of Khangarots in Jaipur state. Boraj is nearly 40 to 45 km away from Jaipur between Mahlan and Jobner. Boraj is known for the early history of Khangarots. Boraj fort is huge and one of the best example of war forts of that period, Rao Khangar along with his father Rao Jagmal and other four brothers attacked Boraj and conquered it in 1549. In this battle Rao Khangar's three brothers named 1. Singhdev famous as Singha 2. Jai Singh famous as Jaisa 3. Sarangdev received heroic rate. After conquering Boraj Rao Jagmal and his son Rao Khangar conquered Jobner, Kalakh, Naraina and near by areas. Boraj fort is also famous as Rao Khangar the founder of khangarot subclan of Kachwaha rajputs queens were used to stay in this fort for many years and became sati after Khangar's death in Mandal during battle in 1583.

Boraj's present ruling family members are direct descendants of Thakur Shivdaan Singh Ji (also famous as Shyodaan Singh Ji). Boraj was came into existence as important Thikana again under the rule of Thakur Shivdan Singh's son Thakur Sakat Singh in 1763. According to old records Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh 1st himself came to Boraj Haveli during this period and gave the title of Tazmi Thikana by presenting Zari Turban, elephant and sword and Khadag (A special sword used by khangarots).

During the reign of Thakur Sakat Singh in year 1786 a fierce battle was fought just 6 months before the famous battle of Toonga or Lalsot. It was against Marathas. In this battle Thakur Sakat Singh along with his other Khangarot brothers of nearby Thikanas fought bravely and Thakur Sakat Singh's brother Jawaan Singh received heroic rate along with other brave Khangarots. After this in battle of Toonga Thakur Sakat Singh fought bravely and shows the Rajput valor and lionhearted nature of khangarots, due to his fearless, unabashed and unmatchable contributions towards the Jaipur State he was given the Killedaari of Jaigarh, Nahargarh (Famous as Sudarshangarh) and Hathroi Garh. Apart from this he was awarded with three important villages in 1787 after Toonga War to add under Boraj Thikana, which were Mirzapur, Rojdi and Guda Bersal.
