Issue 012: Makaradhwaja (English)
Makaradhwaja was a warrior, who conquered Lord Rama, Lakshmana and Hanuman in Ramayana, with the strength of his character.
The Jethwa dynasty of Gujarat, India, claim their descent from Makaradhwaja’s grand son, Jethi-dhwaja. The Jethwas, who once ruled major part of kathiawar and Porbandar, therefore, had the image of Hanuman on their Royal flag. You’ll find temples of Makaradhwaja in these areas.
