Talesar (तलेसर) or Talesara (तलेसरा) is a village in Iglas tahsil, Aligarh district in Uttar Pradesh. [1]

Jat Gotras


It is situated on River Karvan of Lagsama region. It is located at a distance of 25 km from Aligarh in west, 20 km from Iglas in north, and 5 km from Gonda in north.


It is believed that in the long past Kakran gotra Jats migrated from the foothills (talahati) of Himalayas due to unavoidable circumstances there. some of these groups settled in Rajasthan and some in Muzaffarnagar but a group headed by a woman warrior Lakshami settled here at the site of Talesar. Since group had come from talahati, hence the village was called Talesar and the region was known as Lagsami and now Lagsama, the corrupted form of Lakshami. A fair is organized here on every chaitra krishna saptami. It is a matter of research how and when these Kakran people became Thakurela. [3]


The Population of the village is 4500.
