Introductory Note

Here we have provided the information about Nagavanshi rulers. It is a compilation of Nagavanshi Inscriptions in various parts of India. This may provide good information about origin and migration of Jats. At the end of each Inscription, some notes are given to explain the location of places and identification of names. If there is any relation with any of Jat clan it is also explained.

According to Dilip Singh Ahlawat (Hindi - Jat Viron ka Ithihass), These Naga Jats ruled over Kantipur, Mathura, Padmavati, Kausambi, Nagpur, Champavati, (Bahgalpur) and in the central India, in western Malwa, Nagaur (Jodhpur- Rajasthan). In addition they ruled the ancient land of Shergarh, (Kotah Rajasthan), Madhya Pradesh (Central India), Chutiya, Nagpur, Khairagarh, Chakra Kotiya and Kawardha. The great scholar, Jat Emperor, Bhoja Parmar, mother Shashiprabha was a maiden of a Naga Clan.

The great warrior-saint Tejaji 's (A Jat of the Dhauliya Gotra of Rajasthan) brave wife Bodal, lost her life fighting a Naga youth named Balu. A shrine to the warrior saint Teja is erected there. In Rajasthan today there are many Jats of this Naga clan.

In Uttar Pradesh there are many villages of Naga Jats, some villages are - Rampuria, Khudaganj, Dharampur in the district of Badayun and Ahar in the District of Bulandshahr. Legend has it that Ahar is the same ancient village where, Bhimsen was poisoned by Duryodhana and thrown into the Ganga River. Bhimsen was saved by the Nagas. [1]
