  2. Hello i am a sistla from vishakhapatnam a.p india….. i want to know more about my title and my ancesstory

  3. Hi, me from Hyderabad, India and just want to know more about our Sir name ‘Sistla’, like origin, etc. I have ‘Canchi’ also as sir-name along with ‘Sistla’. Could any one our community explain how could we have arrived this?


  4. Good question!
    I too have the same question as most of us might have.

    I guess it came from “Shista” meaning “Good”

    “la” in Telugu would be meaning “of”… the adverbial word.

    On the whole: it would mean “Of Good” or “Good People” 🙂

  34. I have a copy of the published book Sistla “Vamsavriksham”. People interested in knowing the details can contact me.
    This family has been traced to 12-13th century AD, where this Manchalla agraharam was donated to our ancestor by one Reddy King. The name “sistla” is closer to the sanskrit name “Sistha – followers of Achara-Vyavahara as prescribed in the religious texts.

  35. I can scan the copy of the vamsa-vriksham and make a pdf copy. But, I am hesitant to put it on the web because of copy rights of the publishers. Interestingly in some of the branches where there is no son in the family, the book puts an end to the lineage of that branch by stating “nissantu” -not having any children, even if they have a girl(s) in that lineage. This hurts us a bit in these modern days.
    Vedic texts belong to the patriarchal society where we see the bards/rishis often praying to the gods to give them “sons” and there is no mention of daughters! This kind of thinking can also be found in some editions of The Ramayana where Dasaradha had a daughter named “Santa”, but still Dasaradha went on to perform Putrakamesthi to have sons/children. It is also interesting to know that King Harischandra (as mentioned in Aitereya Brahmana) had 100 wives, but no sons (no mention of daughters here). After that he prays to Varuna on the advise of his family priest Vasistha to beget a son named Rohita (the red one).

  36. Another interesting social aspect of this Vamsavriksha is the mention of Sati by a woman around the time of Krishna Devaraya of Vijayanagara empire.

  37. Hi,

    This is SISTLA Phani Chandra from Vijayawada. For your surprise, initially the surname was “etukuchi”. Because of the very stringent and strict aachara-vyavahara that was folowed by our ancesotrs, they were termed as “Sishtulu” – which got translated eventually into “Sistla” and settled as our surname. Our ancestors settled at various places, in and around Krishna/Guntur districs basing out of Manchala, Vennuthala, Pallapatla etc. villages/agraharams. Though our ancestors belong to the same family, due to this settlements at various places for living needs, we are all separated and formed sects within the “Sistla” community with place prefixes. Long ago I had access to a copy of Vamsha Vriksham developed by one of our relative, who was residing in Hyderabad. Unfortunately I couldn’t protect the copy. However, if all of us unite, we can develop one on the net and help the “Sistla” families come together and cooperate towards development of individuals and families with the help of our brothers/sisters/uncles and all other family members who are in capable positions.

    You may contact me on for relationship building.

    Thank you all,
    Phanichandra Sistla,
    Srinagar Colony, Hyderabad.

  56. happy to know more about sistla surname..origin 12-13 th century AD..

  57. Hello Sistlas.

    This is a good effort to build up the Vamsa Vriksha.. Let’s be modest in our efforts. I would like the name for this website as Sistlas’ Vamsa Vriksha. People around us should recognize our efforts to the society and then call us ‘great’. We don’t self-praise our surname or our ancestors. That way the concept of social networking will work. Whoever finds a sistla will guide them to this website so long we don’t blow our own trumpet. Further get modernized, whether it is a male child or a female child.. if they want to identify with sistlas what’s wrong?
    Hope the admin realizes this..
    with all the best wishes..

  58. Hi, I am Ramesh Chandra Sistla, Currently living in UK, our ancestors are from the Lankapalli Agraharam, a few of my
    predecessors and family members have contributed and researched to make the lineage (Vamsa Vriksha) of Sistlas which is published in 1995. I was searching for this book and recently got hold of it
    it has a hierarchy of male members only in various branches (shaka) upto around 8 generations. This publication is in Telugu and only has names of the decendants. I am trying to put this into more detail
    and maybe with all your help trace this further. I will post on this site when I have the data in some presentable form.

  59. Hi Ramesh

    It is indeed a great job to our Sistla clan. We, Sistlas, are eagerly waiting buddy. Keep it up. I have one pdf file which also deals vamsa vriksha, you may need to check it up. Pl. email me (, in case if you like to see.
