Tomar is the biggest khap of Jat gotra found in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.. Tomars have created history a number of times. They are simple living, high thinking and bold. Dilip Singh Ahlawat has mentioned it as one of the ruling Jat clans in Central Asia. [4]


  • Tomara (तोमर) is a sanskrit word which means javelin or crowbar. This indicates that they were expert warriors with javelin as their weapon during Mahabharata period, the Ayudhajivi Kshatriya of Panini.


Bhim Singh Dahiya writes that as mentioned in Mahabharata Bhisma Parva (VI. 10.68) Tomar and Hans are both names of Jat clans. Vayu Purana (47/56) says that the river Nalini, rising from Bindasara in Central Asia and going eastward, passed through the lands of Tomar and Hans. [6]

B S Dahiya[7] writes:They are named in Vayu, Brahmanda and Visnu Pruanas. [8] According to Boher Inscription of 1337 V.S. they were ruling over Delhi before the Chauhans. [9] The Pehawa Inscription mentions a Tomar Family descending from Jaula King. Vayu Purana Says they were originally on the river Nalini in Central Asia, which arises In Bindusarover and goes eastwards (for identity of these rivers, etc. see under Hans) They are also mentioned in the Mahabharata. [10]

Ram Sarup Joon [11] writes that ...Antal Tanwar: It cannot be said with certainty why they wee called Antal. They might be (antim=last) Tanwar rulers, about Sonepat. They have 24 villages near about Sonepat.

Ram Swarup Joon[12] writes about Sulankhlan or Sulokhan : The ancestor of this gotra was one Sulkhyianpal Tanwar. After settling down near Delhi in village Samchana and Gorad they crossed the Yamuna and occupied the fertile land beyond it, while 84 villages are inhabited by this gotra.

Ram Swarup Joon[13] writes about Tanwar or Tur: It cannot be exactly said whether these people are Tushars or Mauryas. Before the establishment of their rule in Delhi their capital was in Tusharsthan.

According to Todd's Rajasthan, Tanwar is a branch of the Mauryan dynasty, but according to the bard of the Tanwar family they are associated with the Pandava. It may be that the Mauryas and Tushars belong to the Puru dynasty and from time to time their family names changed. For some generations this dynasty ruled over Delhi. After losing the throne they rejoined the Jats in large numbers, but some continued to be called Rajputs.

Ram Sarup Joon[14] writes that...about 70 Jat Gotras joined the Gujar force and started calling themselves Gujars. Tanwar is one of them.

Ram Sarup Joon[15] writes that...The Tanwars call themselves descendants of Pandavas. Actually Raja Anangpal's ancestors had migrated from Punjab to Delhi and were known as Tushars. The territory between Satluj and Chenab was called Tusharstan. The Tushars were closely related to Rasks both of who were Jat gotras.

Ram Sarup Joon[16] writes that ...The Tanwar and Rathore Gotras are found amongst Jats also. These were the people who did not give Widow remarriage as a custom, and stayed with the Jats, Ahirs and Gujars and did not join the Rajputs.

Anangpal Tomar I - son of Kandha, re-established Tomar rule at what is now Delhi, the ancient capital of his ancestors. AD 736 - March- xx, Ruled 18Yrs.

After handing over delhi to Prithvi Raj Chauhan Tomars went to Modern day Baghpat and settled in 84 nearby villages. When Britishers came they saw that their are tomars in all the nearby areas so they called it nation of tomars. Since then that area is known to be as Desh-Khap.

Hukum Singh Panwar on Tomars

Hukum Singh Panwar (Pauria)[34] is a noted Jat historian and considers that Sinsinwar Jat rulers have originated from Tomars. He writes that Since we hold the ancestors of the Bharatpur House to be Tomar, it will not be out of place to know who the Tomars were. We have already noted that the triangle formed by Agra, Delhi and Jaipur, including Bayana and Bharatpur, was, as the inscriptional and numismatic evidence indicate, dominated by the Arjunayanas, Yaudheyas and Uddehikas, whose descendents are said43 to exist among the Jats and Rajputs. However, it is well nigh impossible to imagine that these tribes might have disappeared in the thin air. The Yashastilakchampu44, a Jain work compiled by Soma Deva Suri, attests the presence of the Yaudheyas in the 10th and 11th centuries AD. Awadh Biharilal AWasthi45 finds the Yauddheyas of Bayana teaching a lesson to Balban in Mewat so as not to put his hand again in the hornet's nest. Kalyan Kumar Das Gupta46 also confirms their existence as well as that of the Arjunayans in the 11th and 12th centuries AD. in the triang1llar territory mentioned above. We also know from the Brihatsamihita of Varahamihira47 that the Yaudheyas and the Arjunayanas formed a close association. In fact, they were the constituent members of the one and the same Samgha (confederacy).

The Jats:Their Origin, Antiquity and Migrations: End of p.104

Interestingly, writers48 trace the origin of the Yaudheyas from Yudhishthira and that of the Arjunayanas from Arjuna, the brother of Yudhishthira. This tradition is echoed in the Puranas and subsequent literature also. If these origins of theirs are correct, both of the tribes can be unquestionably reckoned as the descendents of the Pandava brothers. In other words, it may be said that they were agnatic cousins. The Arjunayanas are said49 to have merged with their friend-confederates or Cousins, the Yaudheyas. In fact, they were the people, who populated50 and dominated the area which later on constituted and was known as the Bharatpur State. So much so, that the region occupied by them was known as Arjunayanaka for a period.

The more interesting facts relevant to out purpose are the revelation;-by K.K. Das Gupta51 that the Arjunayanas, according to,Chandra's Vyakarana (11,4,122) and Kasika (on Panini, 11.4.66), belonged to Bharat gotra. Some of the branches of the Tomars, according to Yoginderpal Shastri52, were also known as Arjunayana Pundir or Paundir. In the Rohitashgarh stone inscription53 of Mitrasen dated V.S. 1688 (1630 AD.) the Tomars of Gopachal (Gwalior) are said to be of the Pandava lineage. The tradition of the Tomars also support their descent from Parikshita54, Mitrasen was himself, according to Harmiwas Dwivedi, a Tomar who hailed from the royal branch of the Tomars of Gwalior55.

In view of the above evidence we are in a position to safely conclude that the Arjunayanas, the agnates of the Yaudheyas in the triangular territory formed by Delhi, Jaipur and Agra, enclosing Bayana Bharatpur, were the descendents of the Pandava hero Arjuna and Tomars, who belonged to Bharat gotra, were the descendents of Parikshita, the grandson of Arjuna. The fact that Churaman (1695-1721 A.D.), the founder of the Bharatpur dynasty, also founded a city of the name of Bharatpur which subsequently was made the capital of the state, in the beginning of the 17th century AD., proves beyond doubt that he must have been related with the Tomars who belonged to Bharat gotra and must have built the city in memory of their celebrated ancestor Bharata, (who gave his name not only to his descendents but also to the country as a whole- Vaidya, 1904: Ch. III), or more probably to commemorate the victory of their ancestors (Pandavas) in the Bharat war, for surely we know that it has been a universal practice to name

countries, towns, mountains and rivers, especially in newly developed regions, after discoverers, conquerors, founders and celebrated men or some of their extra-ordinary exploit or unique characteristic.

Chronology of Jat rulers of Delhi

Satyartha Prakash by Swami Dayanand Saraswati has published a list of Aryan kings of Delhi. [35]Raja Virsalsen was killed by Raja Virmaha. His 16 generations ruled Delhi for 445 years, 5 months and 3 days. Thakur Deshraj has given the details of thse Pandavavanshi Tomar Gotra Jat rulers.[36]

The chronology of these Jat rulers:

According to Risala their period has been prescribed as under – Mahabal ascended to the throne of Delhi in 800 BC. At that time the ruler of Ujjain city in India was Buddha and Bahmanshah was ruler in Persia. After Mahabal, Sarvdutt or Swarupdatt ascended to the throne of Delhi in 744 BC. During this period Tamisang was born to Ladkun in Khata. Maharaja Virsen became the ruler in 708 BC when Darashah I was ruler of Iran. In 668 BC Maharaja Mahipal ascended to the throne of Delhi. He was so brave that he was popular as Singhdaman. During his regime Kastap had become the ruler of Iran. After death of Singhdaman, Kalink or Sanghraj sat on the throne in 624 BC. Raja Jitmal ascended to throne of Delhi in 595 BC. Kaldahan or Kamsen became ruler of Delhi in 515 BC. His rule extended up to Brahmpur which was known as Kamyvan (Kaman) after Kamsen. In 506 Strumardan became the ruler of Delhi after Kamsen. Thakur Deshraj has worked out the year 481 BC, when Raja Jiwan ascended to the throne of delhi. Maharaja Jiwan became the ruler of Delhi in 478 BC. During the rule of Maharaja Jiwan, one Persian delegation had come to India which studied the conditions of India by visiting various places. After Maharaja Jiwan, Virbhujang or Hari Rao, Virsen II, Udaybhat or Adityaketu were three Jat rulers of Delhi till 372 BC. Adityaketu lost his throne to his own Chieftain Dharandar or Dhaniswar due to conspiracy.

Thus Jats ruled Delhi for about 445 years. Raja Jiwan and his descendents were Pandav vansi. The rule of Delhi went to other people after 27 generations of Yudhidthira. After them Jogi, Kayastha, Pahadi and Vairagi people ruled Delhi. Vikramaditya was also a ruler of Delhi during this period.

Raja Jiwan (481 BC-455 BC) (जीवन जाट) was ruler of Delhi who was Pandav vansi Jat.Tomar jats are also Panduvanshi.

According to Thakur Deshraj the descendants of Maharaja Yudhisthira have ruled here for many generations. ‘Satyarth Prakash’ has mentioned the chronology of rulers of Indraprastha. The author of ‘Rajtarangini’ and editor of ‘Haripriya’ have published this list in their books. In this list there appears the name a king a ‘Jiwan’ descended from ‘Viramaha’. Waqyat panch hajar risala has mentioned him as ‘Jiwan Jat’. Maharaja Jiwan ascended to the thrown of Delhi prior to 481 BC. He ruled for about 26 years.

देश खाप

35. देश खाप - इसमें तोमरों के 84 गांव आते हैं. इसका मुख्यालय बड़ौत में है तथा इस खास के वर्तमान चौधरी सुखवीर सिंह जी हैं. बिजरौल, बामडौली, कासिमपुर, किशनपुर, बावली आदि इस खाप के प्रमुख गाँव हैं. 1857 के स्वतंत्रता संग्राम में इस खाप के गांव बिजरौल के चौधरी शाहमल को अंग्रेजों ने धोखे से फांसी दी थी. [38]


विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[39] ने लेख किया है ... हर्ष के साम्राज्य के छिन्न-भिन्न होने के पश्चात उत्तरी भारत में अनेक छोटी-छोटी रियासतें बन गई और इन्हीं में 12 वीं सदी में पृथ्वीराज चौहान की भी एक रियासत थी जिसकी राजधानी दिल्ली बनी. दिल्ली के जिस भाग में क़ुतुब मीनार है वह अथवा महरौली का निकटवर्ती प्रदेश ही पृथ्वीराज के समय की दिल्ली है. वर्तमान जोगमाया का मंदिर मूल रूप से इन्हीं चौहान नरेश का बनाया हुआ कहा जाता है. एक प्राचीन जनश्रुति के अनुसार चौहानों ने दिल्ली को तोमरों से लिया था जैसा कि 1327 ई. के एक अभिलेख से सूचित होता है--'देशोस्ति हरियाणाख्य: पृथिव्यां स्वर्गसन्निभ:, ढिल्लिकाख्या पुरी यत्र

[p.435]: तोमरैरस्ति निर्मिता। चहमाना नृपास्त्र राज्यं निहितकंटकम्, तोमरान्तरम् चक्रु: प्रजापालनतत्परा:'

यह भी कहा जाता है कि चौथी सदी ईस्वी में अनंगपाल तोमर ने दिल्ली की स्थापना की थी. इन्होंने इंद्रप्रस्थ के किले के खंडहरों पर ही अपना किला बनवाया. इसके पश्चात इसी वंश के सूरजपाल ने सूरजकुंड बनवाया जिसके खंडहर तुगलकाबाद के निकट आज भी वर्तमान हैं. तोमर वंशीय अनंगपाल द्वितीय ने 12 वीं सदी के प्रारंभ में लाल कोट का किला कुतुब के पास बनवाया. तत्पश्चात दिल्ली बीसलदेव चौहान तथा उनके वंशज पृथ्वीराज के हाथों में पहुंची. जनश्रुति के अनुसार क़ुतुब मीनार और कुव्वतुल इस्लाम मस्जिद पृथ्वीराज के इस स्थान पर बने हुए 27 मंदिरों के मसालों से बनवाई गई थी.

कुछ विद्वानों का मत है कि महरौली जहां कुतुब मीनार स्थित है-- पहले एक वृहद वेधशाला के लिए विख्यात थी. 27 मंदिर 27 नक्षत्रों के प्रतीक थे और कुतुब मीनार चांद-तारों आदि की गतिविधि देखने के लिए वेधशाला की मीनार थी. इन सभी इमारतों को कुतुबुद्दीन (r. 1206-1210) तथा परर्वती सुल्तानों ने इस्लामी इमारतों के रूप में बदल दिया. पृथ्वीराज के तराइन के युद्ध में (1192 ई.) मारे जाने पर दिल्ली पर मुहम्मद गोरी (1149 – 1206) का अधिकार हो गया. इस घटना के पश्चात लगभग साढ़े 6सौ वर्षों तक दिल्ली पर मुसलमान बादशाहों का अधिकार रहा और यह नगरी अनेक साम्राज्यो की राजधानी के रूप में बसती और उड़ती रही. मुहम्मद गौरी के पश्चात 1236 ई. में गुलाम वंश की राजधानी दिल्ली में बनी. इसी काल में कुतुब मीनार का निर्माण हुआ. गुलाम वंश के पश्चात अलाउद्दीन (r. 1296 to 1316) ने सीरी में अपनी राजधानी बनाई.

तोमर वंश

दिल्ली सम्राट अनंगपाल द्वितीय को जो तोमर की उपाधि दी गई थी, बाद में वह विश्व प्रसिद्ध तोमर वंश में परिवर्तित हो गई[40]

छपरौली खाप

20. छपरौली खाप - उत्तर प्रदेश के जनपद बागपत में छपरौली कस्बे के आसपास इस खाप के 24 गांव हैं. इस खाप को चौबीसी भी कहते हैं. इस खाप में तोमर जाटों के साथ साथ अन्य कई गोत्र के गांव की आते हैं. छपरौली क्षेत्र से ही चौधरी चरण सिंह राजनीति में आए और अंततः प्रधानमंत्री पद तक पहुंचे.[41]

तँवर पाल

31. तँवर पाल - इस पाल के 82 गांव गाजियाबाद जनपद में हैं. इस खाप के कुछ गांव दिल्ली, मेरठ, मुरादाबाद, बिजनौर और अलीगढ़ में भी हैं तथा जयपुर में पाटन, दौसा और तंवरावटी इस खाप के प्रमुख गांव हैं.[42]

जाट वीरों का इतिहास: दलीप सिंह अहलावत

दलीप सिंह अहलावत[44] लिखते हैं कि इस सुप्रसिद्ध तोमर वंश के आदिपुरुष महाराजा ययाति के पुत्र यदु के भाई तुर्वसु थे। इनको अपने पिता की ओर से भारत के उत्तर-पश्चिमी प्रदेशों का शासन मिला था। इन्होंने हिन्दुकुश से लगाकर कैस्पियन सागर और जगजार्टिस एवं तरिम नदी तक के प्रदेश पर राज्य स्थापित

किया। इनके नाम पर ही इनके शासित प्रांत का नाम तुर्वसस्वान - तुर्कस्थान, तुर्किस्तान तथा तुर्की पड़ा। महाराजा तुर्वसु के साथ गई विशाल सेना (जो शुद्ध आर्य चन्द्रवंशियों का दल था) वहां बस गई। इन लोगों के आर्यन रूप-रंग के सौन्दर्य के कारण तुर्वस शब्द का अपभ्रंश तुर्क वहां की भाषा में सुन्दर के लिए प्रयुक्त हुआ। देश के नाम पर भी तुर्की निवासी तुर्क प्रसिद्ध हुए। तुर्वस-तर्वस-तंवर शब्द भी भाषा के सरलता की ओर बढ़्ने के नियमानुसार ही प्रचलित हुआ। यह तंवर शब्द तुर्वस की उस सन्तति के लिए प्रयुक्त हुआ जो कि भारत में निवास करती रही अथवा तुर्कस्थान से लौटकर यहां बसी। यह तंवर जाटवंश है और जो तंवर राजपूतों या किसी अन्य जातियों में हैं तो वे तंवर जाटवंश से ही निकले हैं। इस वंश की महत्ता का प्रत्येक ऐतिहासिक ने आदर करते हुए मनोयोगपूर्वक वर्णन किया है। ले लोग प्रायः गौरवर्ण के सुन्दर गठनवाले होते हैं। इतिहास इनकी वीरता की साक्षियों से भरे पड़े हैं। रघुवंशी, प्रतिहार जब कन्नौज पर शासन करते थे, उस समय दिल्ली से कुरुक्षेत्र तक के प्रदेश पर तंवरवंशियों का एकाधिकार था। टॉड साहब ने ततकालीन तंवरों को कन्नौजिये प्रतिहारों का सामन्त लिखा है। शेखावाटी के हर्षनाथ मन्दिर के शिलालेख पर लिखा है कि “सं० 1030 (973 ईस्वी) में, एक रघुवंशी नरेश चन्दनराज ने विद्यमान राजा रुद्रेन तंवर का वध किया।” उक्त शिलालेख का वर्णन ‘एपिग्राफिका इण्डिया’ पुस्तक के पृष्ठ 121 पर किया है। नं० 2 शिलालेख इस बात का सूचक है कि उपरोक्त चन्दनराज के पुत्र सिंहराज ने तंवर नरेश सलवण का वध किया। इन्द्रप्रस्थ से अलग वर्तमान महरौली नामक स्थान पर 808 संवत् में दिल्ली नगरी की स्थापना का इनके गौरव में वृद्धि करने वाला एक शिलालेख दिल्ली म्यूजियम (इण्डियन ऐन्टीक्वेटी पृष्ठ 218) में है -

देशोऽस्ति हरयाणाख्यः पृथिव्यां स्वर्गसन्निभः।
ढिल्लिकाख्या पुरी तत्र तोमरैरस्ति निर्मिता ॥

जिसमें तंवरों द्वारा दिल्ली बसाने का स्पष्ट उल्लेख है।

दिल्ली संस्थापक महाराजा अनंगपाल तंवरवंशी ही थे, जिन्होंने कुतुबमीनार के पास विद्यमान लोहे की कीली को विष्णुपद पहाडी से उठवाकर गड़वाया था1

दिल्ली की स्थापना के विषय में दूसरा लेख - राजा भर्तृहरि का भाई विक्रमादित्य (विक्रम) मल्ल गोत्र का जाट दिल्ली का गवर्नर एक दिल्लू नाम का जाट था जो इन्द्रप्रस्थ पर शासन करता था। वह ढिल्लों गोत्र का जाट था। उसी के नाम पर इस स्थान को दिल्ली कहने लगे2। यह सम्राट् विक्रमादित्य जाट (मल्ल या मालव गोत्र) था। उचित स्थान पर इनका वर्णन किया जाएगा। दिल्लू से दिल्ली नाम पड़ना ही उचित लगता है (लेखक)। चौथी शताब्दी ई० पू० में ढिल्ल या दहला, ढिल्लों गोत्र के नाम पर देहली-दिल्ली नाम पड़ा। (देखो पंचम अध्याय डिल्लों जाटों के नाम पर देहली प्रकरण)।

जाट वीरों का इतिहास: दलीप सिंह अहलावत, पृष्ठान्त-191

अनंगपाल पृथ्वीराज के नाना नही थे.

प्रमाण निम्न हैं -

1 अनंगपाल द्वितीय की मृत्यु 1081 में हो गयी थी 2 जब 1081 ईस्वी में अनंगपाल की मृत्यु हुई उस समय से ठीक 1 साल पहले चन्द्रदेव ने कन्नौज में गहड़वाल वंश स्थापना की थी। उसने 1080 से 1100 ई. तक शासन किया उसके बाद मदनचंद ने 1100 से 1104 तक शासन किया उसके बाद क्रमश गोविन्द चन्द्र (1114 से 1154 ई.), विजय चन्द्र (1155 से 1170 ई.), जयचन्द्र (1170 से 1194 ई.)। उपरोक्त वंशावली से यह प्रमाणित होता है की जब अनंगपाल की मृत्यु हुई उस समय मे जयचंद के पिता का जन्म तक नहीं हुआ तो उनकी तोमर राजवंश में विवाह की बाते निराधार है चौहान अजमेर वंशावली सिंघराज(944-964) -विग्रहराज द्वितीय (970 -1105) -अजयराज1105-1133 ई. -अणोंराज1133-1153 ई -विग्रहराज/­बिसल देव 1153-1164 ई -जगदेव- पृथ्वीराज द्वितीय-सोमेश्वर1169-1176 -पृथ्वीराज तृतीया (1176-1192 ई)

उपरोक्त दोनों वंशावलियों से यह प्रमाणित होता है की पृथ्वीराज के पिता और जयचंद के पिता का जन्म अनंगपाल तोमर की मृत्यु के बहुत बाद में हुआ तो ऐसे में विवाह होना असंभव है साथ ही

इतिहासकारो रतनलाल वर्मा ,पाक इतिहासकार अली हसन चौहान ,फरिस्ता , तजकाई नसरी , और जैन कवि नयनचन्द सूरी ,कायम रासो (कायमसिंह चौहान जो पृथ्वीराज का वंशज था बाद में वो मुस्लिम बन गया उसके वंशज कायमखानी मुस्लिम है ) के अनुसार पृथ्वीराज चौहान कि माँ और सोमेश्वर कि पत्नी कपूरीदेवी त्रिपुरी (चेदि राजा ) के हैहय (कलचुरी ) राजा तेजलराज (अजलराज ) कि पुत्री थी न कि दिल्ली के राजा अनगपाल तोमर कि बेटी थी अत: अनंगपाल तोमर का चौहानों से कोई भी वैवाहिक सम्बन्ध नहीं थे ना ही वो पृथ्वीराज के नाना थे इतिहासकार बलदेव मिश्र भी इसी बात की पुष्टि करते है उनके अनुसार ना तो पृथ्वीराज अनंगपाल धेवता था अनंगपाल तोमर उसका नाना नहीं था इतिहासकार हेमचंद रे के अनुसार चौहान पृथ्वीराज दिल्ली के राजा अनंगपाल का धेवता नहीं था।

सन् 1375 ई० में एक तंवरवंशी वीरसिंह जाट का दिल्ली के सुल्तान फिरोजशाह तुगलक की सेवा में रहते हुए भिण्ड (ग्वालियर) पर भी अधिकर कर लेना पाया जाता है। वहां पर आज 200 गांव तोमरों के बसे हुए हैं। विक्रमादित्य तंवर जाट का अपने तीन पुत्र शालवाहन, भवानी, परताप सहित महाराणा प्रताप के पक्ष में वीरभूमि हल्दीघाटी के घोर युद्ध में लड़ने का उल्लेख मिलता है।

तँवर जाटों को ही तोमर बोला जाता है। जाट तंवर देहली के चारों ओर मेरठ, मुरादाबाद, बिजनौर, अलीगढ़ में बसे हुए हैं। हुसेनपुर, छाचरी, सराय, उमरपुर, श्यामपुर, हिसामपुर, मुस्तफाबाद, टांडा, इमलिया, चूखेड़ी, भवानीपुर, जटपुरा, पीपलसाना, हाजीपुर, ध्हनसीनी, सिकन्दरपुर, इस्माईलपुर, खलीलपुर, मथुरा में महराना और फालसा गांव तंवर जाटों के हैं।

इस तंवरवंश की बड़ी-बड़ी शाखायें हैं जैसे - 1. कुंतल 2. चाबुक-चोपोत्कट-चावड़ा, 3. मोटा, 4. सहराव 5. राव या सराव 6. सलकलान, 7. जंघारा, 8. भिंण्डतंवर 9. आन्तल 10. जेसवाल, 11. गढ़वाल1। इसका वर्णन अध्याय जाट गोत्रावली में किया जायेगा। [45]


विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[46] ने लेख किया है कि....बुलंदशहर (उत्तर प्रदेश) (AS, p.640) कालिंदी नदी के दक्षिणी तट पर है. अहार के तोमर सरदार परमाल ने इसे बसाया था. पहले यह स्थान बनछटी कहलाता था. कालांतर में नागों के राज्य काल में इसका नाम अहिवरण भी रहा. पीछे इस नगर को ऊंचनगर कहा जाने लगा क्योंकि यह एक ऊंचे टीले पर बसा हुआ था. मुसलमानों के

[पृ.641]: शासनकाल में इसी का पर्याय बुलंदशहर नाम प्रचलित कर दिया गया. यहां अलेक्षेंद्र के सिक्के मिले थे. 400 से 800 ईस्वी तक बुलंदशहर क्षेत्र में कई बौद्ध बस्तियां थीं. 1018 ईस्वी में महमूद गजनवी ने यहाँ आक्रमण किया था. उस समय यहां का राजा हरदत्त था.

मध्य एशिया में

तोमर/तंवर और हंस वंश - ये दोनों जाटवंश मध्य एशिया में नलीनी नदी के तट पर राज्य व निवास करते थे। इन लोगों के साथ ही पौर, कुण्डमान और शिवि जाटों को भी लिखा है। (देखो तृतीय अध्याय, तोमर/तंवर वंश प्रकरण)। [47]

तोमर गोत्र के स्मारक

Tomar Jats in Ukraine

I. Sara, a Canadian barrister and solicitor has pointed out that the recent excavations in the Ukraine and Crimea provide visible links of Jats and Scythians.

Cap. Dalip Singh Ahalawat has reported in an article published in Jat Samaj Patrika (Oct./Nov. 1991), that Jats had ruled in Scythia and Central Asia. He has given a list of about 70 Jat gotras who have ruled over there. Tomargotra is one of them 70 gotras. According to a survey report by , there are about 32000 Jats in Ukraine, and their language is Jatali. B. S. Nijjar suggests:

"The Jats are the descendants of Scythians, whose kingdom's capital was Scythia, in the present Ukraine (Ukrainian), Soviet Social Republic, is the constituent Republic of the European USSR (Population 49,757,000) in 1947. Now Ukraine's capital is Kiev, the third leading city in Russia. Before the invasion of the golden herd, 13th century B.C. Scythian, ancient kingdom of indeterminate boundaries, centered in the area north of the Black Sea."[48]
