Short History

The popular derivation of Bhinai is “bhai nahin” i.e., “no fear”. Raja of Bhinai is the senior representative of the Marwar family in Ajmer. The title of Raja was conferred on Udaibhan Singh, son of Dalel Singh in 1783 A.D. by Maharaja Vijay Singh of Marwar, as a reward for military service done to the state on several occasions.

Descended from the fourth son of Karan Sen who came to Ajmer, slew the Bhils and received the pargana of Bhinai with other lands from the Mughal Emperor Akbar in Jahu. The grandsons of Karan Sen divided the property between them, the elder taking Bhinai and the younger Deolia Kalan.
