The World of the Banjara Raja

Maps and illustrations about his whereabouts


  • Tribal history according to Gor Banjara females

    Its a great privilege to honor Gor Banjara females. They have preserved the ancient history of their people. I hope educated members of this tribal community will explain this glorious past to their mothers and sisters. And that my beloved people shall face a restoration. I pray they also shall be granted compensation for the horrible crimes committed against them by the British Criminal tribes Act.

  • Levite Bukkiah match Gor Banjara clan

    The biblical figure Bukkiah match the name of a large clan of the Gor Banjara tribe. If you do not see the big picture, simply another very strange coincidence? The Bible explains that Bukkiah was a temple musician from the Israeli tribe of Levi serving in king Solomons Temple in Jerusalem: 1 Chronicles 25:4 As for Heman, from his sons: Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shubael and Jerimoth; Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti and Romamti-Ezer; Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir and Mahazioth. (…) Bukkiah is the great grand son of the prophet Samuel. When the Gor Banjara community acknowledge their biblical identity, this tribe will be able to preserve their Middle Eastern nomadic fingerprints. Unfortunately their unique dress code, patterns, symbols and rituals are fading away quickly in the 21st century.

  • Banjaras: Links and visits to ancient Israel

    The Banjara tribe in India were nomadic long distance transporters. Their carevans could be 35-40 kilometers long, and have 100.000 bulls and bullocks. A comparative study of their females dress code, their DNA and use of judaic symbols, display a Middle Eastern origin and links to the ancient Israel and the Davidic kingdom. The Gormati (Lambadi) word “Tanda” in one of the keys to understand their trading routs, or Lamani margs. Tanda means camp, and they can be found at the edge of the Atlantic Coast in Marocco, just south of Timbuktu in Mali and along the Nile river in Egypt.

  • The Bethlehem, Banjara and Cappadocia match

    The thobe jacket symbol links the people of Judea in Israel with the Banjaras and other nomadic tribes. The origin of this symbol seems to be in Cappadocia.

    Bethlehem never became an ancient center for the Messianic faith. The Magi’s quickly returned back home, and the Messiah at the age of two, had to escape to Egypt to avoid being assassinated. A mass murder of Israeli toddler boys took place. A horrific man mad disaster, that must have set these Judea hills back for the next couple of decades. The family of the Messiah never returned to this town in Judea, but settled in Nazareth in Northern Israel. (…) The global evangelical Church considers the day of Pentecost 30 years later as the birth of the Church. Jews from Cappadocia were present during this festival in Jerusalem and came to faith. (…) When the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70. A.D, the city seized to be a commercial center for trade. The temple worship had been terminated, and the building left in ruins. Nomadic caravans had no longer any business to do here. For the next 200 years, Asia Minor became the regional center for the Messianic faith. (…). Today’s Christians in Bethlehem can not explain the origin of the main symbol of their thobes, their national dress. Simply because the village of Bethlehem since the 16th century have been influenced by Western Europe inspired Christendom, with the pope as its leader. Rome has twisted the original message, and confused millions of believers with false narratives. (…) The symbol of the first centuries Messianic faith can be found in the secret cave churches of Cappadocia. The symbol of Bethlehem match the Three Cross Cave Church symbol. This symbol has inspired Nomadic tribes from the Tuareg Berbers in the West, Kutchi’s in Afghanistan, to Rabaris and Gor Banjaras in the East.

  • The Bethlehem and Gor Banjara breast panel match

    Young girls of Nomadic tribes sit at their mothers feet for a year. And learn how to make their traditional costumes. Possibly the most ancient transfer of knowledge, often neglected and denied among modern academics. The symbol on the breast plate of the Bethlehem thobe and the symbol of Gadag Gor Banjaras are the same. If you study their use of colors, patterns and coins in head gears, you will find similarities that are difficult to explain, if you deny that these sisters have met at certain cross roads, and shared.

    When I came across the book “The textiles of the Banjara” I knew I was holding a treasure in my hand. This book includes several dozen photos of patterns and symbols used by the Gor Banjaras, most of them from the state of Karnataka. It gave me the chance to compare the female dress code of the Banjaras with the dress code of the natives of Judea and Samaria in Israel. The Gor’s match (left side photo) the symbol of the chest plate on the female dress of Bethlehem. (right side photo). Standing alone such a match counts for very little. But in the total context of multiple matches between Gor Banjaras and ancient Israel, it has become one of my key-cards. Do not forget that Bethlehem is not just another village. This village has inspired millions of visitors throughout the ages. Around 1,5 billion people claim their best friend of Jewish origin was born in Bethlehem…

  • Cappadocia: The Celts, Bethlehem and Kuchi Afghanistan connection

    Members of nomadic tribal communities could neither read nor write. But their stoned or stitched symbols and jewellery can explain history better than thousand words.

  • Tandas along the path to Persia

    Most Banjaras are not aware that Tandas are found both in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The caravans between India and ancient Persia traveled through the Bolan and Khyber passes. This trans-Asia trade had a hub in the city of Kandahar. The last camp before the Persian desert was at Tandah Ghar mountain, just south east of the bazaars of Kandahar. Next stop would be Isfahan in Persia.

  • Shrines of Joseph and Tandas in Morocco

    Two Tandas in Morocco are located on hills above streams of water. Close by is a shrine named after Joseph, son of Rachel and Jacob, renamed Israel. And a tribal area named after the ancient Prime Minister of Egypt who reigned ca. 1.700 B.C. Keep in mind that Joseph was born 2.300 years before Muhammad and Islam. Before the Muslim faith conquered North Africa 700-900 A.D the Berber nomadic tribes worshiped God of David and Solomon. The nomads in Morocco still use coins in their female dress code and the seal of king Solomon. Just like the Gor Banjaras. The word Tanda for camp is also found in Egypt where Joseph reigned and became a hero for all people in the Middle East. Half a million Moroccan Jews returned home to the state of Israel after 1948.

  • Tandahs along the Nile river in Egypt

    With the new discovery of 12 Tandas in Africa, the mystery of the origin of the Banjara word for camp should stand solved. Lower Egypt and the Nile delta is the cross road for the nomadic tribes that use this Word for camp/village. Not surprisingly there are two villages or settlements named “Tandah” located just south of Cairo. The people of Israel sojourned in this area for 400 years (1.800-1.400 B.C). The seven plagues and Biblical Exodus resulted in Egyptian linked tribes running in all directions. The Bible explains that roughly 600.000 people crossed the Red Sea into the desert of Sinai. Also people from other tribes followed these Hebrews on their dangerous journey eastwards. The Celtic tribes did not join the people of Israel, according to Celtic folklore. They escaped these ancient apocalyptic events by traveling westwards into North Africa. (…) “Lake Tanda’s” are found in three very distant locations from each other. Up in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, and near the Sahara-desert-end in Timbuktu in Mali. And not to forget near the Khyber pass in Pakistan. These gypsy tribes have surely been on the run through World History.

    Two villages are named Tandah close to the Nile river in Egypt.

  • Hilltop Jabal Tandah in Libya

    A hilltop with an elevation of 678 meter in the southern desert of Libya, is the key to understand my second Banjara World Map. Jerusalem is located at 750 meter. Two natural camps for Nomadic tribes traveling in caravans from Timbuktu to Baghdad. The ancient Gormati (Lambadi) word “Tanda” was used for their caravans. Sometimes they had to stop and rest, at elevated places in the desert, at river beds, or at the end of the journey. My first map was based on coins in the female dress code and Judaic symbols. These kinds of maps are tools that can bring knowledge to a tribe were 95 per cent are considered illiterate.

  • The Israeli Judaean and Gor Banjara Embroidery matches

    Embroidery of Israeli Judaean villages and Gor Banjara Tandas are strikingly similar. Color combinations, patterns and use of symbols are the same. It is not difficult to imagine that ancient Banjara caravans (Lambani people) are the reason how this became possible. The lost daughters of Israel fetched their inspiration from their sisters during visits to Zion.

  • Gor Banjaras and Jerusalem, the center of the World

    Gor Banjara, India and the Jerusalem Worldview: Ezekiel 5:5: “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: This is Jerusalem, which I have set in the center of the nations, with countries all around her (…) Almost all of mankind have been deceived by Rome and European colonialism, and have a totally twisted view of the World. We must all learn from Hereford, map from 1.280 A.D. This is the Jewish and Messianic worldview, with the city of Jerusalem as the center of the World. East is up. There you find both “paradise” and India.

    As the 10 lost tribes of Israel tried to escape eastwards, India seems to be a natural destiny that offered safety. Beyond Persia, beyond the Himalaya, the lost tribes of Israel found people who did not harm them, and permitted them to live according to their faith and traditions. Hindustan (the people of India) is one of the nations that have never been antisemitic. Its foreign invaders not included. After the restoration of the state of Israel in 1948, almost 70.000 people of Jewish origin returned home from India to Zion, their biblical promised land. There are more lost tribes of Israel to be identified and their origin verified. Like a remnant of the lost sheep of Israel being rediscovered within the Gor Banjara community. I am one of the workers the Messiah has called to complete the work of bringing the lost sheep on Israel home, and to proclaim the New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31) which was made for the people of Judah and the people of Israel. (Israel, 10 tribes in the separated Northern Kingdom of Israel). A covenant not written for people who do not belong to the 12 tribes of Israel, but includes all people on the face of the Earth, considered a bonus and added value of this supreme Covenant. Never replacing the people to whom this Covenant was written, but enlarging the people of Israel as a part of its commonwealth. Keep in mind that Europe is «down» on the map with the Jewish worldview. United Kingdom and London can hardly be spoted in this map. Rome and its Pope is not the center of the civilisation. Roman Catholicism is rather a distraction and a dead end for all who take the road back to Rome. Do not be decieved by its theology, doctrines and not biblical worldview.

  • Laban and Indian gypsys called Labhani

    In the indian state of Gujarat the Banjara people are known as the Labhani’s. As recoded by Encyclopedia Britannica. The language of this north western Indian state, is also the regional language in India who are closest related to Gormatti, the language of the Banjara people. In the Indian context, the word Lamani has been understood to have originated out of the word Lavan. Which means salt. It also can be understood as white, the colour of salt. The nomadic tribe came in long caravans, and they were considered to be traders in salt.

    But in a Middle Eastern context, “Labhani’s” do have a very different origin. Laban is the male head of a tribe. The brother in law of Jacob, the father of the 12 tribes of Israel. Laban provided Jacob with his two wives, Rachel and Leah. The tribe of Laban provided the Jewish people with the female blood line. Laban and Jacob are also connected on the male family line. They had the same Great Grand father in Terah, the father of Abraham and Nahor.
    Back to the Indian context: If the Banjara people are not originally from India. The correct understanding of the relationship phrase “a Labhani” should literally be understood as: “a daughter of Labhan”. In lesson number 1, I explained that the Banjara people use the word “Aram” everyday. Without failure. When Jacob set ut to find his wife, he traveled back to the house of his mother Rebecca. Who lived in Paddan Aram. The fields of Aram, the son of Shem. These fields had Harran as the village center, the place where Laban lived.
