Babal (बाब‍ल)[1] Vabal (वाबल)[2] is Gotra of Jats.[3] They live in Rajasthan.[4] Babal is one of royal Jats living in Nandoli Mertiya near Makrana (world popular white marble land) in Rajasthan and gave many engineers, doctors and businessmen. It is a branch of Johiya.



Dr Pema Ram writes that after the invasion of Alexander the Great in 326 BC, the Jats of Sindh and Punjab migrated to Rajasthan. They built tanks, wells and Bawadis near their habitations. The tribes migrated were: Shivis, Yaudheyas, Malavas, Madras etc. The Shivi tribe which came from Ravi and Beas Rivers founded towns like Sheo, Sojat, Siwana, Shergarh, Shivganj etc. This area was adjoining to Sindh and mainly inhabited by Jats. The Jats of Gotra Babal came to Marwar via Patiala. [6]

Babal is Gotra in Bisnois also. Three Hundred and Sixty Three (363) Bishnois died in protecting trees in the year 1730 to save green trees being felled by the Maharaja of Jodhpur at a place known as Khejarli in Marwar. 22 out of them belonged to Babal gotra.

H.A. Rose [7] writes:In Gujrat, Pakistan, the Muhammadan Jat tribes claim very diverse origins. Thus Mughal origin is claimed by the Bhaddar, Malana, Marar and Narwai, who claim to be Barlas ; and by the Bahlam, Chaughatta, Phiphra, Mander and Babal, who claim to be Chaughatta.
