They have descended from King named Dukula (दुकूल)/ Dugula (दुगूला) of the Mahabharata period. [1][2]

They may also have descended from a King Dogala (दोगला) of fifth century in Kota, who was son of Maharaja Shalendra


We find in the history of Maharaja Shalendra, a Jat King in early fifth century in Punjab, whose son was King named Dogala. After the fall of Kushan empire in India Jats had many small republics. There was no prominent Jat king for about two centuries after Kushans. But Maharaja Shalendra in fifth century again established a kingdom, which extended from Punjab to Malwa and Rajasthan. James Tod found an inscription in 1820 AD at village ‘Kanwas’ in Kota state. Tod in ‘Tod Rajasthan’ has described it and salient features of this inscription. [3]

The chronology of the ruler Maharaja Shalendra is as under:

According to Thakur Deshraj one of the descendants of Maharaja Shalendra was known as Dogala (दोगला) married with a Yaduvanshi girl. [4]

Sabha Parva, Mahabharata/Book II Chapter 48 Describes Kings who presented tributes to Yudhishthira. It mentions about the clan Dukula (दुकूल):

वङ्गाः कलिङ्ग पतयस ताम्रलिप्ताः सपुण्ड्रकाः
दुकूलं कौशिकं चैव पत्रॊर्णं परावरान अपि Mahabharata:(2.48.17)

Bhisma Parva, Mahabharata/Book VI Chapter 10 Describes geography and provinces of Bharatavarsha. We find mention about the province of Dugula (दुगूला) clan along with Shakas, Nairas, Matshyas, Kundus etc. as under:

शका निषादा निषधास तदैवानर्तनैरृताः
