We are Sompura Tirth Purohit

The Sompura Brahmins, also known as Somvanshi, trace their lineage back to the Vedic era. The Vedic mantra “इमन्देवा असपत्न्या” states “सोमोस्माकं ब्राह्मणानां राजा” which means that the moon god is the king of our Brahmin lineage. Although we may not have physically come from the moon, our ancestors hailed from the land where the moon held its influence. In Vedic culture, the moon is associated with the origin of herbs, which have a purifying effect on the internal organs and mechanisms of the body. It is believed that the people from the land influenced by the moon’s energy possessed the purest blood, which we identify as “Aryan blood.


Origin History

Skand Puran

According to their traditions, the Sompura Brahmin are so named because they were created by the god Chandra to perform sacred ceremonies called Som Yajna for the god Shiva. They are concentrated in the town of Prabhas Patan and form one of the oldest Brahmin communities in Gujarat. They speak Gujarati. Skand Puran gives the reference for the creation of Sompura Brahmins wide it’s chapters 21/22/23/24.

Pratishtha Yagyag

The Agnihotri brahmins from Chandra Lok came to Prabhas Patan with Hemgarbha-the chief secretary of Moon God to conduct-perform a pratishtha yagya of the first temple of lord Somnath and after the yagya the moon god requested these Brahmins to stay there.


These Brahmins stayed near Somnath so they are called Sompura Brahmins. Generally, the civilizations develop and moves with the source of water worldwide, but the sompura brahmin is the only class who have been stable near Somnath for at least 2000 years.
