Fogat (फोगाट) Phogat (फोगाट)[1] Fogat (फोगत)/ Phogat (फोगत)[2] Faugat (फौगाट)[3] Phaugat (फौगाट) Fageria (फगेडिया)[4] Fagernya (फगेडन्या)[5] Fagonracha (फगोंडचा) Faug (फौग)[6] Phoghat (फोघट)[7] Fagoria (फगोडिया)Phageria(फगेडिया)/Phagernya (फगेडन्या)/Phagonracha (फगोंडचा)[8] is gotra of Jats found in Haryana, Rajasthan[9] and Uttar Pradesh and in Pakistan. Phog (फोग) clan is found in Afghanistan.[10]


It gets name from the village named Fogat (फोगाट) founded by Wilhan (विल्हण). The organization of Faur (फौर) gotra was called Faurgath (फौरगाथ) which in due time became Faugat. [11] Baba Swami Dayal was the first purohit who founded this gotra in 1179. His samadhi is there in Charkhi Dadri where fair is organized twice a year. The main fair is on Janmashtami.


Ram Swarup Joon[12] writes that Phogat people call themselves descendants of the Chauhans. Jharhu Sardar was their famous leader. In Dadri region they have 45 villages. They have a few villages in district Rohtak also.

Prithviraj Chauhan was the last Hindu king of Delhi. He ruled from 1172 to 1192. During 1178 about 17 people of Prithviraj's vans developed differences with him and left his state and moved to different places. One of such person was Bilhan who was settled in village Sanwar near Charkhi Dadri in Haryana. He went to Dharanand Pawar who was the Zamindar of that area. Bilhan was a brave man and Dharanand wanted to marry his daughter to him. Bilhan agreed to this proposal. Myth is that after Bilhan's marriage the newly married coupled went to the land gifted to them by the Zamindar. They constructed hut made of local bush called "Phog". The purohit went to see them and found them behind "Phog" and gave them the gotra Phogat meaning behind Phog. The descendants of Bilhan are called Phogat. They hold in great reverence the guardian deity and founder, known as "Bhuiyan".

In Jind we find the Phogat with a tribal Sidh and also a Bhumia in every village. [13]

Villages founded by Phogat clan

Phogat Khap

In the fourth generation of Bilhan was born Kanaya. Kanaya had two wives and four sons, namely-Hansa, Singha, Lagha and Rara. The four sons founded four panas (sector) in their names. These were Hansana, Singhana, Laghana and Rarana around Charkhi Dadri. This way 12 villages of Phogats developed around Charkhi Dadri. Later 7 more villages were inhabited on that land and total 19 villages formed a Khap of Phogats. Their head village is Dadri. Main villages in districts mentioned are: Hisar district - Harita (हरिता), Rohtak district - Bhalaut (भालौठ), Rithal (रिठाल), Samchana (समचाना), and Naya Gaon; Sonipat district - Kiradi (किराडी) , Kilana (किलाना);

In Bulandshahr district, UP - Dhamaida (धमैडा), Jasnawali (जसनावली), and Kudaina (कुदैना). [14]
