Gussar (गुस्सर)[1][2] [3] [4] Gusar (गुसर) Gusur (गुसर) Gosal (गोसल)[5] [6] [7]is a gotra of Jats found in Punjab and Haryana in India and in Pakistan. Gusar/Gusara/Gasora clan is found in Afghanistan.[8] Gosal (गोसल) is small Jat clan found in Jind and has a Sidh, Bala, at Badrukhan, where offerings are made to his samadh. [9]


This gotra is said to be originated after place name Gosal.


B S Dahiya[10] writes: They are a minor clan now, but inscriptional evidence shows two persons of this clan. One is Maka, son of Saphar, and the second is the Swami Simhabala Gussar of Sanchi Vihara.[11] It is quite possible that Gussur here may stand for the Gujars, as Herodotus says that Gorgoi were the agriculturists of the Scythians.

Bhim Singh Dahiya[12] writes that We know that an individual named Shaphar, son of Maka, and a member of the Gasura clan is mentioned in an inscription.[13] Resisting this identification of Gusur with Gujar, Upendra Thakur says that the word 'Gusur' is not available in any standard Sanskrit or Prakrit dictionary.[14] It may be so, but this word is certainly available in one of the inscriptions of this period under consideration. The Sanchi Stone Pillar inscriptions, No. 73, PI. No. XLII A speaks of a person named Gosura Simha Bala. Here the word 'Gosura', the forerunner of Gujjars, occurs but as is obvious, the name of the individual is completely Indian. These two inscriptions show how the Central Asian Gosuras were Indianised.

Bhim Singh Dahiya[15] writes that A place is named Gasur (Kasur) and Gusur is a clan name among the Jats.
