History

Sidhmukh is the ancestral seat of Sringot clan of Bika Rathores. Rulers of Sidhmukh are descendants of Maharaj Sring ji, son of Rao Jetsi of Bikaner. The Chief is the Umrao noble of Bikaner State and enjoys Dohr Tazim and Kurab Hath in Bikaner Darbar. The estate was granted by Maharaja Sur Singhji of Bikaner. The estate ranks eighth among the nobles of Bikaner, and in1616 A.D. consisted of 15 villages.

In 1813 AD Thakur Saheb Nahar Singhji was Thakur of Sidhmukh and revolted against Maharaja Surat Singhji of Bikaner, he was subdued by Prime minister of Bikaner State Amarchand in a seige by state forces at Sidhmukh and was later kept in captivity at Bikaner. He was killed on the orders of Maharaja of Bikaner. The estate was granted to his younger brother Thakur Saheb Amar Singhji. The war of succession for Sidhmukh erupted among various family members affiliated to Sidhmukh.

In 1833 AD Thakur Saheb Prithvi Singhji of Sidhmukh revolted against Bikaner State and was later subdued by State forcec led by Surana Hukumchand and Sidhmukh was taken under State administration.

In 1846 AD Maharaja Ratan Singhji of Bikaner granted the estate to younger son of Thakur of Bhukarka, for his exceptional service during Anglo Sikh war and Thakur Saheb Hatti Singh became the Thakur of Sidhmukh.

The names of these members are not part of main lineage as their lineages did not progress and estate was abolished during or after their reign.
