  • Parshu was an ancient republic of Ayudhjivi Sangha known to Panini (V.3.117) and mentioned as Parshva (पार्श्व) in Mahabharata (VI.10.54). It may be the origin of this clan.
  • They are said to be the descendants of King Porus.


Ram Swarup Joon[8] writes about Purnwal, Phalswal or Poruswal: This gotra is spread all over the Punjab. A Puru King fought against Alexander. According to Arrian the historian of Alexander there were two Porus- es. These were not actually their names, but their gotras. In the Mahabharata they are mentioned as the "Purusik" tribe.

They are considered to be the descendants of the king Porus, who had war with Alexander the great.

This clan has been described by Megasthenes as the Parasangae (Paraswal), The hill-tribes between the Indus and the Iomanes, along with the Chrysei (Karesia), Cetriboni (Khatri), the Megallae (Mukul), the Chrysei (Karesia), the Cesi (Khasa) , and the Asange (Sangwa) Jat clans.
