Mention by Pliny

Pliny[3] mentions The Ariani and the adjoining Nations. ....The city of Cartana6 lies at the foot of Caucasus; in later times it has been called Tetragonis.7 This region lies over against that of the Bactri, who come next, and whose chief city is Alexandria8, so ,from the name of its founder. We then come to the Syndraci9 the Dangalæ10 the Parapinæ11, the Catuces, and the Mazi; and then at the foot of Caucasus, to the Cadrusi, whose town12 was built by Alexander.

7 Or the "four-cornered city."

8 This place has not been identified. It has been suggested that it is the same as the modern city of Candahar; but that was really Alexandria of the Paropanisadæ, quite a different place.

9 Inhabiting the district now called Arassen, according to Parisot.

10 Inhabiting the modern Danra, according to Parisot.

11 Inhabitants of the modern Parasan, according to Parisot.

Sindher in Haryana - In Haryana these people are called Sindher. Actually this is wrongly interpreted. Sandhu and Sindhar are different gotras. The biggest Sandhu Gotra villages in Haryana are Koth Kalan also called Koth Kalan and Koth Khurd. There is also one village near Panipat called Khotpura, which was inhabited by the decedents of Koth Kalan.The residents of Kheri Sadh (Rohtak) and Nunond (नौणंद) (Rohtak) are actually Sandhu not Sindhar.

It is one of Jat Gotras who joined Gujar force.[4]

सींदड़ गोत्र का इतिहास

पंडित अमीचन्द्र शर्मा[5]ने लिखा है - तहसील हांसी जिला हिसार में सींदड़ गोत्र के जाटों का खांडा एक प्रसिद्ध ग्राम है। ये चौहान संघ में थे और इनके बड़े का नाम सींदड़ था जिसके नाम से यह गोत्र प्रचलित हुआ। सींदड़ ने कराव किया और चौहान संघ से अलग हुआ। खांडा में सर्वप्रथम आर्य धर्म का प्रचार हुआ। हिसार प्रांत का पौराणिक पंडितों ने आर्य धर्म को रोकने के लिए खांडा पर बड़े बड़े आक्रमण किए। खांडा के आर्य पुरुषों ने बड़ी शांति के साथ पौराणिक लोगों का मुक़ाबला किया।

पंडित अमीचन्द्र शर्मा[6]ने लिखा है - ढ़ुल गोत्र के बड़े का नाम ढ़ुल था। ढ़ुल और सींदड़ सहोदर भाई थे। इसलिए आज भी परस्पर विवाह संबंध नहीं होते। ढ़ुल गोत्र चौहान संघ से अलग होकर बना है। ढ़ुल ने कराव किया और चौहान संघ से निकलकर जाट संघ में आ गया। चौहान संघ मुख्यत: जाट गोत्रों से ही बना था। रामराय और इकस इनके बड़े और प्रसिद्ध गाँव हैं।
