They are found in Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab. Jangal (जंगल) is also a Gujar clan found in Amritsar.[5] .

HAZARAJAT - Jaglan in Afghanistan are known as warrior Hzara jat.[6] .They are known for their patriotism, fighting strategies against USSR in 1990.[7]


They have originated from Jangala (जाङ्गल) people of the Mahabharata period. Other sources tell that Jaglan gotra started after place called Jagayadra (जगयाद्र). Their ancestor was named Jagga which gave the name to this gotra. [8]

भयाण एवं जागलान जाट गोत्रों वत्स जाट गोत्र की शाखा चौहान जाटों के वंशज हैं। वत्स गोत्र के जाट वीरों का राज्य महाभारत काल में था और महाभारत युद्ध के बाद इनका राज्य भटिण्डा (पंजाब) क्षेत्र पर रहा, जिनका राजा उदयन था। इसी वत्स जाट गोत्र की शाखा चौहान जाट हैं। सातवीं शताब्दी में राजपूत संघ स्थापित होने पर जो चौहान जाट उसमें मिल गये वे चौहान राजपूत कहलाने लगे और जो उस संघ में न मिले वे चौहान जाट ही कहलाते रहे जो आज भी कई प्रांतों में विद्यमान हैं। इसी चौहान जाट गोत्र के दो प्रसिद्ध वीर भैया व जग्गा नामक हुए। उनकी प्रसिद्धि के कारण चौहान जाटों का एक संघ, भैया से भयाण तथा दूसरा संघ जग्गा से जागलान शाखा गोत्र प्रचलित हुए।


Ram Sarup Joon[9] writes that...about 70 Jat Gotras joined the Gujar force and started calling themselves Gujars. Jaglain is one of them.

Bhim Singh Dahiya writes that this clan is named as Jāngala in the Vayu Purana, alongwith Bodhas and Bhadhrakars. [10] Matsya Purana says that the river Indus flowed through the country of Jāngalas. Mahabharata also mentions them. [11]

Bhisma Parva, Mahabharata/Book VI Chapter 10 Describes geography and provinces of Bharatavarsha. It mentions Jangalas in shloka 37 along with Madras, Shalvas etc. [12]

Local tradition says that there was a Rajasthani Jat with 'Chauhan' surname. He migrated to southern Haryana region few hundred years ago. He had two sons - Bhaina and Jugaa. Off springs of Bhaina came to be known as 'Bhayan' and Off springs of Jugga came to be known as 'Jaglan'. Given their same roots, Hindu Jats of Jaglan, Bhayan do not intermarry.

Kalika Ranjan Qanungo [13] mentions about the village Naultha and the Jaglan clan:

"A similar phenomenon of a tribal feud in which even aliens range themselves under one faction or another has not altogether disappeared in the Rohtak and Delhi [P.12] districts, where the country-side is divided into two factions - Dahiya and Ahulanas: "the Gujars and Tagas of the tract, the Jaglan Jats of thapa Naultha, and the Latmar Jats of Rohtak joining the Dahiyas, and the Huda Jats of Rohtak . . . joining the Ahulanas." [P.13]

H.A. Rose[14] writes that Jaglan (जगलान), a tribe of Jats, found in Karnal. They are descended from Jagla, a Jat of Jaipur, whose shrine at Israna is worshipped by the whole thapa or group of 12 Jaglan villages which forms the barah of Naultha. Their ancestor is also worshipped at the village shrine called deh, which is always surrounded by kaim trees, and if a woman who has married into a Jaglan family, passes a kaimn tree (Stephegyne parvifolia), she always veils her face as if it were her older relative of her husband. In Jind the Jaglan are described as descendants of Jaga, founder of Jaglan in Hissar.

Sub divisions of Chauhan

Bhim Singh Dahiya[15] provides us list of Jat clans who were supporters of the Chauhan when they gained political ascendancy. The Jaglan clan supported the ascendant clan Chauhan and become part of a political confederacy.[16]
