Naharwar (नाहरवार) Naharwal (नाहरवाल)[1] Naharwal (नहारवाल) [2]Nahar (नाहर)[3] is gotra of Jats found in Rajasthan,Haryana and Madhya Pradesh. Naghar clan is found in Afghanistan.[4]


One of their ancestors had a fight with Tiger (Nahar), who killed the Tiger and hence called Naharmar or Naharwal. [5]


Nahar, in the time of the Mughal emperors, furnished the chieftain of the Khatran, his residence being at Nahar Kot. [6]

H. W. Bellew [7] tells that For the other sons of Dani (after whom, in the early Muhammadan period, the northern part of the present Kakar country was named Danistan, as the southern was named Kakaran or Kakaristan), namely Dadi, Naghar, and Pani, are expressly distinguished in Afghan histories, as differing, in many of their manners and customs, as well as in dialect, from the true Kakar. Thus the Naghar are expressly designated as Rajputs, and by the Afghans are commonly called Baloch. They are described as closely allied in origin and domestic customs, as well as in political relations, with the Pani, and they both have most of their clans settled in Shekhawati and Hydarabad, the lesser parts only residing in Kakar territory As to the Dadi, their history is lost in the obscurity to which they have sunk, and nothing more seems to be known about them now than that they have become absorbed into the Kakar tribe, and attached themselves to an immigrant colony from Khojand, with whom they are generally known as Khojandi or Khundi.
