Sandhawalia is a very small Jat tribe (or gotra) originally from Rajasthan and now living in Punjab. In the 1881 Census it was listed as one of the smallest of the Jat tribes.[1][2] Sandhawalia is a small Jat gotra consisting of landowners and landed-farmers.

Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the Jat Sikh ruler of Punjab, and his family asserted lineage from this Jat tribe[3][4][5] that originated from their ancestor Raja Shah (Salvahan), son of Raja Gaj Singh of Jaisalmer.[6][7][8] The Sandhawalia Jatt tribe was inconspicuous before Ranjit Singh's assertion.[9]

The Sandhawalia tribe population was 682, in Amritsar district, during the 1911 British Punjab Census[10] and esimated to have grown to 2,046 within Amritsar district in 1994.[11]
