Origin of the Rajputs :

A Rajput (from Sanskrit raja-putra, “son of a king”) is a member of one of the patrilineal clans of western, central, northern India and some parts of Pakistan. It is also claimed that the Rajputs are descendants of North India’s warrior classes. The Rajput clan basically rose to fame in the 6th to 12th centuries, and until the 20th century, they ruled over the princely states of Rajasthan and Surashtra. In some parts of Rajasthan it is believed that the Rajputs were of foreign origin and were created by the Brahmins to accord them the Kshatriya (warrior) caste.

The lineage of the Rajputs is traced to a historic event related to a fire on the mountain top at Mt. Abu. The Rajputs of the state of Rajasthan were noble, handsome, brave, and lived a life of honor and chivalry. Even today the heroic deeds of the rajput rulers like Prithviraj Chauhan, Rana Kumbha, and Bhappa Rawal echoes all over the state.

After the Indian Independence, 23 princely states were combined to form Rajasthan.
