History

Ram Swarup Joon[10] writes about Rawat, Sahrawat, Rae (Tanwar): Rai, Rao, Rawat and Sahrawat were only titles used by Tanwar sardars which later began to be used as gotras. The Rawat Jats have 800 villages in district Gurgaon and 8 villages in district Aligarh.

The capital of Sahrawats was Mohpalpur near Delhi where a very old house is still called a palace.

12 villages near Mehrauli belong to the Sahrawat Jats. In Haryana they are found in Kair, Dipalpur, Bhadani, Kultana and other villages, and some are found in district Meerut also.


Saravas have been mentioned amongst the heroes of the Pandava army in Kurukshetra War Day-2 along with Kundavishas, Mandakas, Ladakas, Tanganas, Uddras, Tumbhumas, Vatsas, and Nakulas.[11]

The Rao Jats were rulers of Nagaur for about 200 years. [12]

All the Rajas with Baba Fulasingh Akali fought wars with Mugals and British. 'Samast Rav' in Hindi became Sarav or Sarava[13]

Jatanpal Stone Inscription of Saka Year 1140 (A.D. 1218) provides us some information about Rao king in Bastar. Jatanpal (जटनपाल) is a village 40 miles from Dantewara in the Bastar State (now Chhattisgarh). The inscription records the grant of land by one Kama Nayaka, a subordinate of a chief named Somaraju, under Maharaja Narasimhadeva Rao, in the Saka year 1140, or A. D. 1218. (See Nagavanshi Inscriptions)
