Saran (सारण)[1]/ (सारन)[2] Saharan (सहारण)/(सहारन)[3] is a gotra of Jats in Rajasthan,[4] Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh in India. They were supporters of Bhati Confederacy. [5] [6] [7]



Ram Swarup Joon[8] writes about Saran, Randhawa, Kajla: The Saran gotra is a branch of Bhatti gotra and the Saran Jats are associated with the royal dynasty of Jaisalmer. Their capital was in Bikaner State, which was later occupied by the Rathors. The Sarans live in this area even today.

In the history of this gotra there have been two famous men named Kajal Singh and his son Randhir Singh. Kajal Singh is the forefather of the Kajala gotra of the Jats who mostly live in Bikaner and Haryana.

History of the Jats, End of Page-99

Randhir Singh founded the village of Jhandiala in 1580 in the Punjab and his descendants are called Randhawa. His grandson Targha adopted the Sikh religion and while serving as Jathedar in Patiala misl ruled over Targha Pargana.

Ram Swarup Joon[9] writes about Sheoran, Shivran: According to the bard of this dynasty king Gaj of Ghazni had two sons named Mangal Rao and Masur Rao. Mangal Rao was the ruler of Lahore and Masur Rao of Sialkot. Foreign invaders drove both of them out of their kingdoms. Masur Rao fled away to the deserts of Rajasthan. He had two sons named Abhai Rao and Saran Rao. Descendants of Abhai Rao came to be called Bhurhya Bhatti and those of Saran Rao, Saran. Mangal Rao had six sons, named Mojam Rao, Gulrish, Moolraj, Sheoraj, Kewl Rao and Phul Rao. Descendants of Gulrish came to be called Gloraya or Kiliraya, those of Moolraj, Munda and those Sheoraj, Sheoran. Descendants of Kewal Rao and Phul Rao adopted pottery as their profession and were called Kumhar.

The Sheoran gotra is a big gotra having 52 villages in Luharu 25 in Dadri and 25 big villages in Hissar. People belonging to Kiliraya and Munda gotras are found in Bikaner State.

In the History of Herodotus

Bhim Singh Dahiya[20] writes that the in the period from ninth century B.C. to the fourth century B.C., roughly the time between the Manda and Van empires and Alexander's invasion, we find numerous tribes of the Jats finding a name in the history of Herodotus and others. Among the tribes of the Medians, we find:

The ruling people are called Arizanti or Arizatoi. The word Ari is a form of Arya and Zanti/Zatoi are of course the Jats, the Djati of ancient Egypt and the Guti of Sumer and China.

Sanchi inscription

They are mentioned by Cunningham[21] in an inscription at the Buddhist Stupa of Sanchi of the Ashoka period as under:

No. 87. — Aya Rahilasa Sārhineyakasa-Mātu dānam.

"Gift of Arya Rahila, the mother of Sarhineyaha.

Saran as per Records of Bards

According to the bard of this dynasty king Gaj of Ghazni had two sons named Mangal Rao and Masur Rao. Mangal Rao was the ruler of Lahore and Masur Rao of Sialkot. Foreign invaders drove both of them out of their kingdoms. Masur Rao fled away to the deserts of Rajasthan. He had two sons named Abhai Rao and Saran Rao. Descendants of Abhai Rao came to be called Bhurhya Bhatti and those of Saran Rao, Saran. Mangal Rao had six sons, named Mojam Rao, Gulrish, Moolraj, Sheoraj, Kewl Rao and Phul Rao. Descendants of Gulrish came to be called Gloraya or Kiliraya, those of Moolraj, Munda and those Sheoraj, Sheoran. Descendants of Kewal Rao and Phul Rao adopted pottery as their profession and were called Kumhar. [22]

People belonging to Kiliraya and Munda gotras are found in Bikaner State. [23]

Migration of Saran's

Traditionally Jats consider their origin from the far northwest and claimed ancient Garh Gajni (modern day area between Ghajni, Afghanistan to Rawalpindi, Pakistan) as their original abode.[24] Persian chronicler Firishta strengthened this view and informs us that Jats were originally living near the river of the Koh-i-Jud (Salt Range) in northwest Punjab.[25] The Jats then occupied the Indus valley and settled themselves on both the banks of the Indus River.

By the fourth century region of Multan was under their control.[26] Then they rose to the sovereign power and their ruler Jit Salindra, who promoted the renown of his race, started the Jat colonisation in Punjab and fortified the town Salpur/Sorpur, near Multan.[27]By the end of seventh century, Jats were thickly populated in Deybal region.[28]Their main population was settled in the lower Sindh.The Chachnama stratified these large population of Jats, as 'the western Jats' (Jatan-i-Gharbi) and 'the eastern Jats' (Jatan-i-Sharqi), [29] living on the eastern and western side of the Indus River. The chronicler s further classified them as 'The Jats living on the banks of the rivers (Lab-i-Daryayi) [30] and the Jats living in plain, desert (Jatan-i-Dashti); and 'the rustic Jats' (rusta'i Jat) living in villages.[31]As Jataki, the peculiar dialect of the Jats, also proves that the Jats must have come from the NW Punjab and from other districts (e.g. Multan) dependent upon the great country of the Five rivers.[32]

By the end of fifth and the beginning of the sixth century, Saran's and Jat's southward migration, second in line, took place and they reached Kota in Rajasthan, probably via Bikaner regions. From Kota they migrated further east and established their rule at Malwa under the rule of Salichandra, son of Vira Chandra. Salichandra erected a minster (mindra) on banks of the river Taveli in Malwa.[33] Probably after their defeat by Sultan Mahmud in 1027 AD, and later hard pressed by the Ghaznavi Turkish Commander, the Jats of Sind again migrated to Rajasthan and settled themselves in Bundi regions.[34] The second inscription found at Bundi probably dates from circa samvat 1191 (1135 AD) possibly refers to the Jats as opponents of the Parmara rulers of Rajasthan.[35]

When Muhammad bin Qasim attacked Dahlilah, a fortified town in between Roar and Brahmanabad, most of the inhabitants (the Jats) had abandoned the place and migrated to Rajasthan via desert and took shelter in the country of Siru (modern Sirohi distict) which was then ruled by King Deva Raj, a cousin of Rai Dahir.[36]

However, the third migration took place in early eighth century, Sihag, Godara, Saran,Punia and Jats of lower Sind migrated to Rajasthan, probably via Barmer regions to Bikaner, Ganganagar and Hanumangarh. By the twelfth century, the Jats settled in western Punjab, as the native poet Abul Farj Runi mentions them along with the Afghans.[37] Meanwhile, they also extended their abode in the eastern part of the Punjab (now Haryana to Sirsa and Hisar), as in the end of the twelfth century they resisted Qutb-ud-din Aybak in the region of Hansi.[38]

Saran Rulers in Jangladesh

Earlier they were in Central Asia than they migrated to northern Salt-range Punjab region in India and at the time of Alexander invasion in Punjab in 326 B.C. they fought with Alexander The Great and then Saran along with Sihag,Punia,Godara,Beniwal and Johiya migrated to north Rajasthan region known as Jangladesh and ruled there till 15th century.

Sarans were rulers in Jangladesh. Jangladesh coincided with the princely state of Bikaner in Rajasthan. When Rathores under the leadership of Bika and Kandal were spreading their rule in Jangladesh. At that time Saran Jat were ruling in about 360 villages in Jangledesh. Pula Saran was their king and their capital was at Bhadang town. Bharang (भाड़ंग) is an ancient village in Taranagar tahsil in Churu district in Rajasthan. It is in Raiyatunda Panchayat in east of it. The ancient town was slightly away from the present town some where in between Bhurawas and Sahawa. We find traces of the ancient town in form of ruins and coins etc.

Prior to the rule of Rathores, it was capital of Saran Jats. Khejra, Phog, Buchawas, Suin, Badnu and Sirsala were its districts. Their king's name was Pula Saran and he had 360 villages under him.

As for the Jats prior to coming of Rathors in Rajasthan Nainsi refers to Jat settlements at Bhadang which is identified as the Saran Jatan Ra Des or des belonging to the Saran sept of Jats. [39]

Table of Jat republics in Jangladesh

Dr Karni Singh, a well known political personality and author, records that Jats had established powerful governments in north India. Prior to 1488 Jats had seven Janapadas of Godara, Saran, Sihag, Beniwal, Puniya, Johiya in desert region of Bikaner. Following are the main clans and their heads with capital and number of villages in each territory. [40], [41]

S.No. Name of janapada Name of chieftain No. of villages Capital Names of districts
1. Punia Kanha Punia 300 Jhansal[42]/Luddi[43] Bhadra, Ajitpura, Sidhmukh, Rajgarh, Dadrewa, Sankhoo
2. Beniwal Raisal Beniwal 150 Raisalana Bhukarkho, Sanduri, Manoharpur, Kooi, Bae
3. Johiya Sher Singh Johiya 600 Bhurupal Jaitpur, Kumana, Mahajan, Peepasar, Udasar
4. Sihag Chokha Singh Sihag 150 Suin/Pallu Rawatsar, Biramsar, Dandusar, Gandaisi
5. Saharan Pula Saran 300 Bhadang Khejra, Phog, Buchawas, Sui, Bandhnau, Sirsala
6. Godara Pandu Godara 700 Shekhsar Shekhsar, Pundrasar, Gusainsar Bada, Gharsisar, Garibdesar, Rungaysar, Kalu

It is thus clear that out of 2670 villages in the Jangladesh, 2200 villages were under the rule of Jats. Each canton bore the name of the community, and was subdivided into districts.

There are evidences of town being in existence in 725 AD. There is temple of Pula Saran. Pandiyas were the priests of Sarans of this area.

Pulasar (पूलासर) is a village in Sardarshahar tahsil in Churu district in Rajasthan. It is situated in southeast direction of Sardarshahar at a distance of few kms. It was founded by its ruler Pula Saran.

Pula Saran's wife was Malki who was abducted by Godara chief Pandu and there was a war with Godara regarding Malki. Sarans had war with Rathores but the Godara Jats had aligned with Rathores due to which Sarans faced a defeat. Godaras were the most powerful among the Jat rulers of Jangladesh. The lack of harmony and coordination among other Jat rulers led to the defeat of Jat states in Jangladesh and established the Rathore Kingdom.

Saran Hinglaj temple - Saran Hinglaj temple is situated near the banks of Hingol River in Samakarata and Khald Pradesh, positioned on the trade routes connecting Baluchistan and Sindh with Gujarat, Jaisalmer, Marwar and Bikaner etc. [44]

Sub sections of Bhatti

According to H.A. Rose[45] Jat clans derived from Bhatti are: Lahar, Sara, Bharon, Makar, Mond, Kohar, Saharan, Isharwal, Khetalan, Jatai, Khodma, Bloda, Batho and Dhokia.[46]

ठाकुर देशराज लिखते हैं

ठाकुर देशराज लिखते हैं कि भाट-ग्रन्थों में राव सारन नाम के भाटी और औलाद में हुए लोगों का नाम सारन है। भाट लोग कहते हैं कि सारन ने जाटनी से शादी कर ली थी। इससे उनके वंशज सार कहलाए, यह कथा नितान्त झूठी गढन्त है, जिनका हमने पिछले पृष्ठों में काफी खंडन कर दिया है। सारन वंशीय जाट-क्षत्रिय हैं। सारन व उनके पूर्वज जाट थे। वे उस समय से जाट थे, जिस समय कि लोग यह भी नहीं जानते थे कि राजपूत भी कोई जाति है। जांगल-प्रदेश में उनके अधिकार में 300 से ऊपर नगर और गांव थे। रामरत्न चारण ने उनके अधिकृत गांवों की संख्या 460 बताई है। उनकी राजधानी भाडंग में थी। खेजड़ा, फोगा, बूचावास, सूई, बदनु और सिरसला उनके अधिकृत प्रदेश के प्रसिद्ध नगर थे। राठौरों से उनके जिस राजा का युद्ध हुआ था, उसका नाम पूलाजी था। प्रजा इनकी धन-धान्य से पूरित थी। राज्य में पैदा होने वाली किसी चीज पर टैक्स न था। वहां जो चीजें आती थीं, उन पर भी कोई महसूल न था। कहा जाता है कि जांगल-देश के ब्राह्मण घी, ऊन का व्यापार किया करते थे। राज्य में जितनी भी जातियों के प्रजा-जन थे, सबके साथ समानता का व्यवहार किया जाता था। सारन शांति-प्रिय थे। उनकी प्रवृत्ति थी, ‘स्वंय जियो और दूसरों को जीने दो’। रामरत्न चारण ने अपने लिखे इतिहास में बताया है कि गोदारों जाटों का सरदार पांडु सारणों के अधीश्वर की स्त्री को भगा ले गया, इस कारण जांगल-प्रदेश के सभी जाट-राज्य गोदारों के विरुद्ध हो गए। कहना होगा कि जाटों के लगभग तीन हजार गांवों की सल्तनत को कुल्हाड़ी के

जाट इतिहास:ठाकुर देशराज,पृष्ठान्त-619

बेंट गोदारा पांडु ने नष्ट करा दिया। पांडु यदि राठौरों के हाथ अपनी स्वाधीनता को न बेच देता, तो राठौरों पर इतनी आपत्ति आती कि फिर बेचारे जांगल-प्रदेश की ओर आने की हिम्मत तक न करते। गोदारों की शक्ति अन्य समस्त जाट-राज्यों की शक्ति के बराबर थी। यह नहीं कहा जा सकता कि जांगल-प्रदेश के जाटों को राठौरों ने जीता। जाटों के सर्वनाश का कारण उनकी पारस्पारिक फूट थी। उसी फूट का शिकार सारन जाट हो गए। उनका प्रदेश युद्धों के समय उजाड़ दिया गया और वे पराजित कर दिए गये, किन्तु शांति-प्रिय सारनों ने जो वीरता अपने राज्य की रक्षा के लिए दिखाई थी, वृद्ध सारन जाट उसे बड़े गर्व के साथ अपनी सन्तान को सुनाता है।

भाड़ंग के सारण

भाड़ंग चुरू जिले की तारानगर तहसील में चुरू से लगभग 40 मील उत्तर में बसा था. पृथ्वीराज चौहान के बाद अर्थार्त चौहान शक्ति के पतन के बाद भाड़ंग पर किसी समय जाटों का आधिपत्य स्थापित हो गया था. जो 16 वीं शताब्दी में राठोडों के इस भू-भाग में आने तक बना रहा. पहले यहाँ सोहुआ जाटों का अधिकार था और बाद में सारण जाटों ने छीन लिया. जब 16 वीं शताब्दी के पूर्वार्ध में राठोड इस एरिया में आए, उस समय पूला सारण यहाँ का शासक था और उसके अधीन 360 गाँव थे. इसी ने अपने नाम पर पूलासर (तहसील सरदारशहर) बसाया था जिसे बाद में सारण जाटों के पुरोहित पारीक ब्राह्मणों को दे दिया गया. पूला की पत्नी का नाम मलकी था, जिसको लेकर बाद में गोदारा व सारणों के बीच युद्ध हुआ. [48] मलकी के नाम पर ही बीकानेर जिले की लूणकरणसर तहसील में मलकीसर गाँव बसाया गया था.[49] सारणों में जबरा सारण और जोखा सारण बड़े बहादुर थे. उनकी कई सौ घोड़ों पर जीन पड़ती थी. उन्हीं के नाम पर जबरासर और जोखासर गाँव अब भी आबाद हैं, मन्धरापुरा में मित्रता के बहाने राठोडों द्वारा उन्हें बुलाकर भोज दिया गया और उस स्थान पर बैठाने गए जहाँ पर जमीन में पहले से बारूद दबा रखी थी. उनके बैठ जाने पर बारूद आग लगवा कर उन्हें उड़ा दिया गया.[50][51]

सहारण गोत्र का इतिहास

उदाराम सहारण[52] ने भाट अभिलेखों के आधार पर सहारण जाति का इतिहास निम्नानुसार बताया है:

सहारण गोत्र की प्रसिद्धि संवत 1122 (सन 1065 ई.) हुई जब राजा सारण द्वारा पुराना नाम वरबुड़ियावास था, सहारनपुर के नाम राज्य की स्थापना वर्ष संवत 1122 (1065 ई.) में हुई। [53]

सहारण वंश वृक्ष इस प्रकार बताया है - राजा बलि - राजा सहारण - (पौंडर व) जसरा - पिथरा - मंगलसी -

राजा मंगलसी भाडंग में संवत 1320 चेत बदि 5 (सन 1263) में थे जिनके पुत्र - (जालय व) लूनकरण - सोनगरा- देदा- बीरू- उदा -कालू - देवराज- जास्सा. जास्सा जी ने जास्सासर संवत 1421 (1364 ई.)

जासा के सात पुत्र थे सहसरों, मालक, भेरू, पानी, खानी, गोपी एवं बुद्धा.

बुद्धा जी के पुत्र दलावर -रिड़मल- फ़त्ता- लिखमा- (र्मद व) बीरू - (जसपाल व) दल्लू जी.

दलूजी के 3 पुत्र महरा, मूणा, डूंगर.

डूंगर जी संवत 1845 (सन 1788 ई.) सरदारशहर में बसे. डूंगर जी के पुत्र चेतन जी व जोरू जी, जोरू जी के चार पुत्र सेहो जी, हेमोजी, बीजो जी, टीकू जी.

हेमोजी के पुत्र- पुरुखो जी एवं जेसोजी थे.

पुरुखो जी संवत 1919 (सन 1862 ई.) में मिर्जावाली बस गये, जिनके तीन पुत्र नारायण जी, भादर जी, उदाराम सहारण हैं.

सहारनपुर - इसका नाम पहले बुडिया था. बलि के पुत्र सहारण के नाम पर सहारनपुर हो गया. राजा सारण द्वारा पुराना नाम वरबुड़ियावास था, सहारनपुर के नाम राज्य की स्थापना वर्ष संवत 1122 (1065 ई.) में हुई। [54]

भाडंग - भाडंग नाम का प्रसिद्ध गांव आज भी तारानगर तहसील जिला चुरु में है. संवत 1320 (1263 ई.) में सारण राजा के वंशजों द्वारा भाड़ंग को राजधानी बनाया गया था।[55]

सहारनपुर से राजा मंगलसी सहारण भाडंग पहुंचा. भाडंग उस समय का प्रसिद्ध ठिकाना था जहां जाटों के सहू, सिहाग, जोईया, झोरड़ गोत्र रहते थे. मंगलसी ने उन सबको वहां से निकाल दिया व उस पर संवत 1320 चेत बदि 5 (सन 1263 ई.) में कब्जा कर लिया.

जसासर - यह चुरु तहसील और सरदारशहर तहसील की सीमा के पास चुरु तहसील में आज भी गांव है, जिसको जस्सा सहारण ने संवत 1421 (सन 1364 ई.) में बसाया था.

इस प्रकार सहारण गोत्र का 27 पीढियों का 883 वर्षों का इतिहास उपलब्ध है. पुराने समय में राजस्थान में सहारणों के 360 खेड़े (गांव) की गणना की जाती थी. सहारनपुर के पास 444 गांव सलावा अब तक भौमसिंह पुत्र विजयसिंह राव गांव भड़सिया जिला नागौर की दातारगी में हैं.

पूलासर व राजा पूला सहारण - संवत 1400 (सन 1343 ई.) (तुगलक वंश 1320-1414)

सहारण वंश में संवत 1400 (सन 1343 ई.) में राजा पूला सहारण पूलासर के राजा हुये. पूलासर सरदारशहर से करीब 20 किमी दक्षिण पूर्व में चुरु की तरफ़ एक बड़ा गांव है जहां बोहरा व पांडिया ब्राहमण हैं. पूलासर व राजा पूला के दिल्ली बादशाह की बेगम को जमुना में डूबने से बचाने के बदले दिल्ली का शासन 3-1/2 दिन पूला राजा को देने की कहानी पूलासर के पांडिया ब्राहमण प्रमुख श्री बदरीप्रसाद पांडिया ने लेखक (उदाराम सहारण) को बड़े गर्व के साथ सुनाई. बादशाह ने 2 दिन के पूला के दिल्ली का राज करने के बाद शेष 1 दिन का राज्य चतुराई से बेगम के माध्यम से वापस ले लिया. तब पूला राजा के मंत्री पांडिया ने पूला राजा को कहा कि मुझे क्या दोगे. पूला राजा ने पूलासर ठिकाना इस पर पांडिया ब्राहमणों को दान दे दिया और कहा कि आज के बाद पूलासर में कोई भी सहारण नहीं रहेगा और न ही यहां का पानी पियेगा. इस परम्परा का पालन आज भी जारी है. पूलासर में कोई भी सहारण परिवार नहीं है.

राव भौमसिंह द्वारा भी कहानी तो लगभग यही बताई कि इक्षुराजा के नाम 2-1/2 दिन दिल्ली का शसन किया. 1 दिन वापस दान कर दिया.

पांडिया ब्राहमण आज भी पूलासर व पूला राजा के नाम पर फ़क्र करते हैं व बताते हैं कि पूलासर के पास पूलाना तालाब पर आज भी पूला राजा की समाधी के अवशेष हैं.

राव बीका और राव जोधा की जाटों को समूल नष्ट करने की चाल

राव बीका और राव जोधा ने जाटों को समूल नष्ट करने की चाल चली। उन्होंने राजपूतों को मन्त्र दिया कि हम जाटों से लड़कर नहीं जीत सकते इसलिए धर्मभाई का रिवाज अपनाकर जब विश्वास कायम हो जाये तब सामूहिक भोज के नाम पर बाड़े में इकठ्ठा करो। नीचे बारूद बिछाकर नष्ट करो। इस कुकृत्य से असंख्य जाटों को नष्ट किया गया। [56] बीकानेर रियासत के मुख्य गाँव जहाँ जाटों को जलाया गया -

Saran in Indian epics

We find mention of name Saran in Indian Epics at various places. It is a matter of research if there is any connection of these with the present Saran clan.
