Among the Rajas who resided at Husseypur, Kshem Karan Sahi, Jubraj Sahi, Sardar Sahi, and Fateh Sahi turned out to be the prominent ones, historically through the expansions of their kingdoms and also by establishing themselves as strong kings of the region.
During the reign of the Sahis with Husseypur as the capital, the town was an important trading centre with a huge market, a fort, and temples. Though a few temples and the market survived, the fort of Husseypur was destroyed by the English during the reign of Raja Fateh Sahi. After this Raja Fateh Sahi left Husseypur to Tamkuhi.
Named after Rajput Ana Singh , Anapur is a village in tehsil Soraon of present day Allahabad district. It is one amongst the many villages which has a few notable sites like Shrinverpur  and Ram Chaura .
Until the Haveli was established by Babu Chintaman Singh’s descendant, Babu Deokinandan Singh , an Amil  of the English, Anapur played no significant political role. In the early period of English settlement, many nobles and prominent people established themselves at important revenue and ruling positions by favor of the English.
Later expanded into zamindary, Anapur was extensively developed under the supervision of Rai Bahadur Babu Bhagwati Saran Singh  with schools, hospitals and a model agricultural training center.
As of 2020, Anapur has a bustling bazaar and holds a fair for three days on the occasion of Vijayadashami welcoming admirers into its abode.
Husseypur is a village in the district of Gopalganj in 2020’s Bihar located on the eastern banks of the Jharahi river. Established in the later part of the seventeenth century by Raja Kshem Karan Bahadur Sahi after he moved his capital from Kalyanpur.
Initially Husseypur was a fort built by Raja Kshem Karan Bahadur Sahi and his successors expanded the fort and developed the village until the reign of Raja Fateh Bahadur Sahi. The halt on expansion was due to relocation of the capital by Raja Fateh Bahadur Sahi after his refusal to accept the suzernity of British thus being forced to leave Husseypur. Later, the British destroyed the fort towards the end of the eighteenth century putting an end to the vibrant centre with a significant military importance.
As of 2020, the ruins of the fort still dot the area on the east bank of river Jharahi and a statue of goddess Saiyya  beneath an old ficus tree is all that remains.

Raj Tamkuhi, the capital of Sahis’ became the seat of the House of Bagochias as a result of the revolt of Raja Fateh Bahadur Sahi against the East India Company. The story of Tamkuhi might be two hundred and fifty years old, but the family which founded it dates to a couple of centuries before Christ.
Legends say that the Sahis’ are descendants of Mayura Bhatta, a descendant of Rishi Jamdagini. More than a hundred generations passed before Raja Fateh Bahadur Sahi founded Tamkuhi.
During his revolt against the English suzerainty of Bengal, Raja Fateh Bahadur Sahi had to leave his then capital Husseypur and take refuge in the jungles of Bank Jogini of pargana Sidhua Jobna of then Gorakhpur District. It was here he laid foundations of Tamkuhi Raj by building a mud fort clearing the forest.
Right since the inception of Tamkuhi until he gave up the throne and turned into a fakir in 1808, Raja Fateh Bahadur Sahi ensured that the British never had influence over Tamkuhi. Permanent Settlement records of 1830 show Tamkuhi under the Rajas after him. His successors added to the growth and development and by 1947, Tamkuhi became a small town with facilities for education, health, and cultural activities.
On his eighty-fourth birthday on 4th March 2020, I’m delighted to release what could essentially have been an introduction to Kunwar Biseshwar Sahi in his own words.
Though he left us on 9th April 1989, my Baba has had a huge impact on my life and was quite a man to learn from. I have found this handwritten note in one of his six dairies:
That’s where he stopped it. I presume this was an introduction to his autobiography considering how he had a habit of documenting events in his life. But now, we will never know for certain.

I’m Vaidurya, a scientist who works to unravel the biology behind plant life. I love reading and have pursued a career in science for a span of more than a decade while living in Japan, South Korea, Czech Republic and Germany.
For me, plants and family history have always kindled my interest and no amount of time I spend researching these topics tires me. While I built my career on the first one, the second has motivated me to create this platform. However, these aren’t my only passions. I love travelling, learning about animals, birds, history of science and interacting with people.
I have been pursuing them for a long time now. Honestly, I have been gathering data about my family since I was in college. Maybe because there was so much I could read and know being born in one of the oldest lineages in India. The lineage of Mayura Bhatta.
The Sahis have a recorded genealogical history of 117 generations of kinship, with Tamkuhi as their capital for more than 250 years.
Using this platform, I would like to talk about the nobility in Modern India and how times have changed. Being born with a silver plated spoon rather than a silver spoon, I consider myself to be in a position to deal with the intricacies.
My grandparents were the last to have experienced and lived in the era of royalty, while times changed starting with my father’s generation. Though it didn’t perish, it wasn’t exactly what it used to be. My generation only had the chance of experiencing the remnants of the romanticised era.
It will be my endevour, through this website to showcase that charm along with the changes. With a team of editors and writers, I will take you through my writings to the battlefields. Tell you stories about hunting expeditions. Explain you the customs while serving you the recipies of royal food. There will be a riot of emotions involving love, ego, self respect, compassion, hatred & cruelty and I hope you find it engrossing if you are curious to know about the House of Raj Tamkuhi and Anapur.
