Isharwal (ईशरवाल) Ishrwa (ईशरवा) Ishrawan (ईशरावां) Isarwal (ईसरवाल) is a gotra of Jats in Rajasthan and Haryana. They were supporters of Bhati Confederacy. [1] [2] [3]


Bhim Singh Dahiya [4] gives a table showing the alleged Rajput descent of the Jat clans. Isharwal Jat clan is shown as descended from Bhatti clan. He explains that the above chart has been taken from Tribes and Castes Vol. II, p. 375. This supposed Rajput ancestry is patently incorrect. Many clans had hoary history before the name "Rajput" was adopted in the tenth century A.D. or later, as an ethnic name, due to social and religious differences. Those sections of the Jats who were formally converted to Brahmanism and consequently practised widow burning, instead of widow remarriage, were styled "Rajputs". It will also be seen that a majority of the Rajputs, at least their important clans, are of a later arrival from Central Asia, whereas the Jat clans were in India even in the Vedic period.

Sub sections of Bhatti

According to H.A. Rose[5] Jat clans derived from Bhatti are: Lahar, Sara, Bharon, Makar, Mond, Kohar, Saharan, Isharwal, Khetalan, Jatai, Khodma, Bloda, Batho and Dhokia.[6]
