Rajasthan - the land of imperial warriors has a history that fascinates. With origins clouded in legend, Rajasthan came to prominence in the middle ages as Rajputs began to make their presence felt.
Available records indicate that the Rajput clans emerged in the early 6th century. Most of these clans trace their origin to Suryavanshi's (the descendants of Lord Rama) and Chandravanshi's (the descendants of Lord Krishna). A third set of clans emerged when the great sage Vashistha performed a yagna in Mount Abu that led to the emergence of four Agnikula clans.
Sisodias, Kacchawas and Bhatti's have played important roles in shaping the history of Rajasthan, India.
Some important towns and cities in Rajasthan are: Jaipur, Jodhpur, Mount Abu, Udaipur, Bikaner, Pushkar, Alwar, Barmer, Bundi, Bhilwara, Beawar, Bharatpur, Chirawa, Deeg, Dholpur, Dundlod, Dungarpur, Shekhawati, Jaisalmer, Pilani, Pindwara, Sikar, Tonk and Osian.
