The Panwar or Pramara is one of the most ancient and famous of the Rajput clans. They are in,” The most ancient History of India”.
It was the first of the four Agnikulas, who were created from the fire-pit on the summit of Mount Abu after the Kshatriyas had been exterminated by Parasiirama the Brahman. ” The fire-fountain was kistrated with the waters of the Ganges ; ” expiatory rites were performed, and after a protracted debate among the gods it was resolved that Indra should initiate the work of recreation. Having formed an image of dfiba grass he sprinkled it with the water of life and threw it into the fire-fountain.
Thence on pronouncing the sajivani mantra (incantation to give life) a figure slowly emerged from the flame, bearing in the right hand a mace and exclaiming, ‘ Mm\ Mar ! ‘ (Slay, slay).
He was called Pramar ; and Abu, Dhar and Ujjain were assigned to him as a territory.” The four clans known as Agnikula, or born from the fire-pit, were the Panwar, the Chauhan, the Parihar and the Chalukya or Solanki.
