Khiva Rao sired Sidhu Rao in around 1250 AD. Sidhu Rao’s descendants merged back with the Jat community. Sidhu is the founder of the Sidhu Clan.

Sidhu was also married into a Gill Jat family. He sired six sons from this marriage:

Dahar’s descendants are know as Bhaike of Kainthal and Jhumba.

'Dhar’s descendants are know as Pirkotias.

Roop’s progeny are Rosse of the village of Tehna in Faridkot.

Suro’s progeny are know as Meharmia.

Mano’s descendants are settled in Malkana and Naurang villages and known as Manokes.

Bhura’s descendants are known as Harikas and Brars.

Hari Rao was born in the family of Sita Rao, the elder son of Bhura. He was the founder of the Harkike Sidhu branch. Kaonke, Attari, Harike and Fattanke belong to this lineage. They are not of Brar lineage.

Jarth, the second son of Sita Rao, sired Brar who founded the Brar Clan.

Sidhus have seven sub-clans:









Ram Swarup Joon[5] writes that Siddhu is a very ancient gotra. The ancestor of this gotra was Siddhu Barar. The gotra was named after him and came to be known as Siddhu.

Among his descendants Phul was a fortunate one, as his five sons founded five kingdoms. All of them together are called Phulkiyan states including Nabha, Patiala, Jind, Malot and Kapurthala. The Bhatti Rajputs are just a branch of the Madrak Jat gotra.

Rajatarangini[6] tells that Siddha was brother of Jajja

Among his descendants Phul was a fortunate one, as his five sons founded five kingdoms. All of them together are called Phulkiyan states including Nabha, Patiala, Jind, Malot and Kapurthala.

B S Dahiya[7] writes: They are mentioned in the Vishnu Purana. [8] The royal house of Patiala, ect. are from this clan. Brar, another clan has separated from Sindhus and so Brars are Sindhus.

  • Col. T. S. Sidhu - Gurpratap Singh Sidhu has provided this information. His ancestral village is Mehraj. My father, Lt. Col. T. S. Sidhu is an Ex-Armd Corps Veteran (45 Calvary Regiment) having lead the Indian Army offensive against Pakistan at the Battle of Garibpur 1971 resulting in the subsequent liberation of Bangladesh. My father being the youngest officer was leading his battery of tanks against the Pakistani 'Peepa's'. You would be pleased to know that a motion picture named 'Peepa' is under way production depicting the same Battle of Garibpur with Ishaan Khattar as the protagonist. They actors would be playing the part of Brig. Balram Mehta & his colleague, i.e. my beloved Father, Col. Sidhu. Though it's anyone's guess how true to the facts do the motion picture production team stays. My father was gravely injured in the offensive having an enemy AP (Armour Piercing) shell hitting his tank blasting through Dad's gunner's chest and landing between my father's legs. He had to climb out of the utterly damaged tank and crawl using just his elbows before he was luckily picked up by one of the front line army ambulances. Dad's legs still have multiple lead pellets embedded within them since the AP shell hit him. They too have become a part of the legend that he is. (Source:Gurpratap Singh Sidhu, S/O Lt. Col.
