Shyam (श्याम)[1][2] is gotra of Jats.[3]

Origin

This gotra originated from Vasudeva's brother Shyamaka (श्यामक). [4]

History

Jats and Meds have been the oldest occupants of Sind. The first Persian account of the 11th century Mujmat ut-Tawarikh (1026), originally an ancient work in Sanskrit, mentions Jats and Meds as the ancient tribe of Sind and calls them the descendants of Ham, the son of Noah. [5] [6]

Hukum Singh Panwar[7] quotes different versions of many Indian place and tribal names given by E. Pococke in his book, 'India in Greece'.

Hamman = Hammon = Ham (Sam or Shyam),[8]
