Origin of Saain clan

They are said to have been originated from Saainnath (सांईनाथ), a son of the King Uplasee Panwar in Panwar dynasty.


Some information is available in the records of Rao's (bahi bhats) of Melana village which is situated about 40 km from Osian town in Jodhpur district.

As per records in Panwar dynasty there was a Chakarwarti Samrat named Pop Panwar. In the descendants of Pop Panwar there was a king named Uplasee Panwar who ruled over Dharanagari (Dhar Madhya Pradesh) in sanwat 1010 (953 AD). The wife of the king Uplasee Panwar was a Sinsinwar Jat from the Rajgharana of Bharatpur in Rajasthan. There were twelve sons of the King Uplasee Panwar. The name of one of them was Saainnath.

Saainnath in (Samvat 1105 = 1048 AD) established a village called Saainsar which was situated at a distance of 55 km from Nokha Mandi (Bikaner Dist in Rajasthan) in western direction. Saainsar village still exists in Bikaner district in Rajasthan though no Saain gotra Jats live there. The descendents of Saainnath were called Saain gotra Jats. Saain gotra started from Saainnath.


The kuldevi of Panwar dynasty was Mahakali. One daughter of king Uplasee Panwar become famous in the name of Sachyee Mata. She was considered as incarnation of Mahakali. The temple of Sachyee Mata is located in Osian town of Jodhpur.
