History:
During the first half of the 15th Century Maharana Kumbha had shifted his capital from Chittor to Kumbhalgarh. Kumbhalgarh is very near to the present township Sadari. The place was known as Machchhindrapur before it was reconstituted as Kumbhalgarh. While the construction of the Kumbhalgarh Fort was in progress, there used to be lots of day-to-day problems of various kinds. Whatever used to be constructed during the day used to get destructed during the night hours. (Similar story is famous about construction of the Ranakpur temples in the same area.) The Maharana felt it to be a religious and Vastu problem and instructed his people to identify and find the knowledgeable Brahmins who could pacify the disturbing enemy stars and planets. The village Kusuma behind Mount Abu near Hathal was famous for the knowledgeable Kutsas Gotri Brahmins. Maharana invited these Brahmins to perform the 'Durg pratishtha Pooja'. Post pratishtha Maharana donated Kasar village to these Kutsas Gotri Brahmins. Thousands of Bighas of the Land of the Kasar village is all owned by Brahmins.
