Sanjaya (संजय) was a King of Shivi tribe. His son was Jali.

Jat Gotras from Jali

Jurel (जुरेल) - Jurel gotra of Jats has originated from Raja Jali (जाली) son of Raja Sanjaya. Jalo, Jali and Jurel Jat gotras are from the same ancestor Jali. This word developed from Juvaraniya (जुवराणिया) where the role of Yuvaraja was more than the king. Juvarajika (जुवराजिक) changed to 'Juvarail' and finally to Jurail. [1]


The Jatakas mention about rulers of Shivi tribe. One of them was a religious and kind king named Sanjaya, who donated every thing and moved himself with his wife Madri, son Jali Kumar and daughter Krishnajina Kumari to 'Bankagiri'. The Buddhist literature 'Avadan Kalplata' writes Sanjay a Vishwamitra. These people were democratic rulers of Ganasangha type. All works were done in these ganas with the consent of clan people. [2]
