Baigoman is a village in Gaya, Bihar. It is managed by Punakala Panchayat of the Paraiya Block, a district sub division. It is the only village in Paraiya block acquiring the largest area of agricultural land.[1]

The village was founded by a Kachhwaha Rajput wrestler (Pehlwan) approximately 200 years ago[when?]. Before being founded, the area was a non agricultural, semi-forest land controlled by Tekari Raj.

The Baigoman House[needs context] is also called Baigoman Kachehari as the zamindars used to sit there for Aam Sabha.[citation needed]

Raghunath Singh was the last zamindar of Baigoman, who was one of the richest men in Gaya of his time[when?] and he was known for his lavish life style. He is also known for providing residential land to the Bhumihin people as well as bringing electricity and water via canal to this village.[2]


Approximately two centuries ago[when?], the Tekari Raj granted a portion of its territory to Raj Shri Kashinath Singh Ji. Singh Ji, a warrior from Saran, assisted the then Maharaja of Tekari in resolving a significant water crisis. The solution primarily involved mediating disputes over a southern dam.[citation needed]

During this period Baigoman was characterized as a non-salute, non-jurisdictional zamindari state, spanning an area of roughly 100 square kilometers. Although the rulers of Baigoman were not formally acknowledged as monarchs, they wielded considerable authority in the Tekari and Gurua regions. Notably, these rulers sided with the Tekari kings in their administrative disputes with the British and were responsible for local taxation, which was used for the development of Tekari town.[3]

The nationwide abolition of the zamindari system in 1950 led to estate-related disputes in the Tekari region, mirroring conflicts in other parts of Bihar. Subsequent tensions between various communities, including the Rajput, Bhumihar, Dalit, Yadav, and Gareri, intensified. A significant incident in 1979 involved the murder of a Bhumihar individual, which precipitated a series of retaliatory raids on neighboring villages in the following months.[4]
