Nindar (or Neendar, Neendor) is a village in Jaipur District, in the state of Rajasthan, India. It is situated about 10 km west of Amer (Amber) and 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.

History[edit]

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. The current Rawat Sahib and custodian of the family is Rawat Harsh Vardhan Singh Shivbhrampota since 2006.

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.
