History

The ancestors of the family migrated from Chittorgarh, the home of the Sisodia rulers, during the period of Rana Sanga due to the internal strife, and established their own kingdom at Rampura in the central provinces of India. From there they conquered Bhanpura and Ajabgarh pargana (now Bhangarh and Ajabgarh), a deserted town in Alwar district. It was conquered by Maharaj Madho Singhji, brother of Maharaja Man Singhji I of Amber in the 16th century. The Chandrawats were left with the thikana of Sankotra for their maintenance. Sankotra Fort was built in the 17th century, and is situated 48kms from Jaipur old city, and is surrounded by the Aravali ranges.
