History

Ancient Indian Kingdoms in 600 BC

Dr Pema Ram writes that after the invasion of Alexander in 326 BC, the Jats of Sindh and Punjab migrated to Rajasthan. They built tanks, wells and Bawadis near their habitations. The tribes migrated were: Shivis, Yaudheyas, Malavas, Madras etc. The Shivi tribe which came from Ravi and Beas Rivers founded towns like Sheo, Sojat, Siwana, Shergarh, Shivganj etc. This area was adjoining to Sindh and mainly inhabited by Jats. The descendants of Madras in Rajasthan are: Jinja, Bana, Thoria, Lagman, Kamodia, Madal, Devsalya, Junawa, Maderna, Judi, Madrewa, Khokh, Asihag etc. [2]

They are descendants of rishi Kondilya (कोंडिल्य) or Kondinya (कोंडिन्य). They are also called Kamboj. [3]

They are mentioned by Cunningham[4] in an inscription at the Buddhist Stupa of Sanchi of the Ashoka period as under:

No. 15. — Nadinagarā Kabojasa-bhikhuno dānam.

Evidence compiled by Nainsi on the clans of the Jats and their original homes and migration there from to different places in Merta in Nagaur are of Immense importance. It is one of the prominent immigrant clans who came to Merta.
