Nindar (or Neendar,) is a village in Jaipur District, in the state of Rajasthan, India. It is situated about 10 km west of Amer in direct line but separated from Amber by hills and forests.It fell closer to Jaipur after Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh found his new capital as Jaipur in 1727 CE. It is 2 km from NH 11 (Bikaner to Agra via Jaipur).[1][2] The village was included in Jaipur Municipal Corporation prior to 1995. The village is within sight of the Aravalli Range. In the village are a fort and a palace, visible from National highway No. 11.


The village was granted under a jagir to Rao "Shivbramh" or "Sheobramh", the fourth son of Raja Udaikaran of Amber (1366–1388).[3] The descendants of Rao Sheobramh are known as Sheobramhpota.

Raja Prithviraj of Amber included the "Sheobramhpota" in the 12 principal houses of Amber called the Bara Kothri. A Tazimi thikana, it is notable that only three of the twelve principal houses came from predecessors of Raja Prithvirajji. Nindar was founded by Rao Shivbramh, the fourth son of Raja Udaikaranaji of Amber (Jaipur) 1366/1388, who received villages, including Nindar, as his inheritance.Thereafter sons and grandsons of Rao Shivbramha ruled Nindar.till 1956 when the resumptions of Jagirs Act was passed. However Its too long a history. Some notable persons from Nindar were 1rst Rao later Rawat Gopaldas who commanded The Mughal army under Raja Man Singh 1rst after defeat and death of Raja Birbal of Emperor Akbar.And stoping Raja Todarmal at Khyber pass. Man Singh ordered Gopaldas to clear the Khyber pass to pass Army to reach Kabul. Gopaldas did it successfully. After crossing the pass Raja Man Singh defeated all five major tribes of Afgans including Mandar and Yusufzai. The flag of Amber was converted into five colored flag. Gopaldas was made Rawat from Rao. The current head and custodian of the gaddi of Ninder is Rawat Harsh Vardhan Singh from 10 October 2006 after the demise of his father Rawat Hari Singh Nindar .
