Short History

Neema is an ancestral seat of the Kishansinghot clan of Bika Rathores. The Thakurs of Neema are descendants of Maharaj Kishan Singhji, the second son of Raja Rai Singhji (ruler of Bikaner) and brother of Raja Sur Singhji (8th ruler of Bikaner), who conferred the hereditary Dohri Tazim, Hathro Kurab, to Thakur Saheb Jagat Singhji of Sankhu in 1630 AD. The thikana provided significant support to Maharajah Sardar Singhji of Bikaner during the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 AD, and Thakur Mohkam Singhji of Neema died gallantly in battle. The thikana provided a chakari asvar of 12 to the Bikaner State. Rulers are seated at number 3 in “Misl Davi Samli” in the Bikaner Durbar.
