The full name of the gotra is 'CHAUDAHRANASAROHA' (14 in Hindi). Sagroha is a derivative of the word Saroha and exists as a separate gotra. Malak, Gathwala, Tank, Bura and Sagroha are the gotras of the same dynasty.[3]


Taank Kingdom in 565 AD

In popular Parlance, the Tank - Sarohas are mentioned together like 'Dahiya-Dabas' and 'Siddhu - Brar' combination). The Cities of Tonk, Sirohi are named after them. At one time, the entire Punjab was called Tank Desa. The reports of The Chinese pilgrims confirm this fact. Originally they were worshippers of the Snake-Garlanded form of Shiva. Hence they were called Nagas also. [4] [5]
