Thogatveer Kshatriyas are the descendants of Maharishi Pushpandaja Muni and the devotees of Shri Chowdeshwari Devi. In between 1780-1785, Thogatveer community whose initial occupation was handloom weaving migrated from Andhra Pradesh for living. By end of 18th century many Thogatveer families migrated to Solapur for living. That time Thogatveer families settled down Madhav Peth (Currently known as East Mangalwar Peth), Guruwar Peth, Ganesh Peth, and Sakhar Peth. Initially Chowdeshwari Devi devotee started thinking to celebrate “Jyoti Utsav”. From 1800, Thogatveer community started celebrating “Jyoti Utsav” on Shravan full moon (श्रावण शु.पौणिमा) night. During that time, community members made several changes and started fund (group) system . Initially there were five fund and then later three more fund started. Until 1930, there were seven fund existed and every year entire Thogatveer community were celebrating “Jyoti Utsav” with enthusiastically and with devotion.
