Connection to Pundarik[edit]

The information about Pundarik seems to be mostly verifiable, eg: here, but I'm struggling to verify the claim that the Pundir are descended from him. Without that connection, the information really has no part in this article. Can anyone help? - Sitush (talk) 12:17, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Pundir Gurjars[edit]

If we google Pundir Gurjar, we find ample results showing the name of Gurjar villages with Pundir Surname in Saharanpur District and interestingly when we search the same term on Facebook we get similar results. If Gurjars have people with this surname then it should be included in the article for the sake of information. The change may therefore be important. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ashokharsana (talkcontribs) 00:53, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Only if you can prove a connection using reliable sources. - Sitush (talk) 18:59, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

The Pundir (also spelled Pandeer, Pandir, Pundhir, Pundeer or Poondir) is a Suryavanshi clan of Rajputs. The word itself is derived from the Sanskrit word "Purandara" literally meaning "the destroyer of enemy". The Pundir Rajputs hold riyasat in Nahan, Garhwal, Nagaur and Saharanpur where their Kuldevis are situated. Their shakha is Koolwal and their Kuldevis are Shakumbhri Devi in Saharanpur and Rajasthan along with Punyakshini Devi in Garhwal with their gotra being Pulastya and Parashar. Most of the Pundirs are today based mainly around the North Indian states of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Haryana

ndir clan has its origins with Raja Pundarik, the fourth king in line after Kusha. Pundarik is revered as a Rishi and his temple is situated in Katheugi village of the Kullu district in the state of Himachal Pradesh. The rishi is depicted as a white Nāga and in the Puranic lore Pundarik is the name of a White Naga and the legend of Pundarik Rishi also affirms his birth as a Naga from an earthen pot. Kusha, the first born of Sita & Ram, is said to have been the progenitor of the Pundirs. Kartikey Pundhir. — Preceding unsigned comment added by KARTIKEY PUNDHIR (talkcontribs) 15:58, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
