विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[8] ने लेख किया है ...ढुंढार, आमेर (जयपुर, राजस्थान) की रियासत का मध्य युगीन तथा परवर्ती नाम है। इस रियासत की स्थापना कछवाहों ने ग्वालियर से निष्कासित होने के पश्चात् जंगली मीनाओं की सहायता से की थी। 'ढुंढार' राजस्थान की राजधानी जयपुर का पुराना नाम था। ढुंढार का उल्लेख तत्कालीन साहित्य तथा लोक कथाओं में है- 'मेवार ढुंढार मारवाड़ औ बुंदेलखंड, झारखंड बांधौधनी चाकरी इलाज की।'[9] कहा जाता है कि 1129 ई. के लगभग जब ग्वालियर से कछवाहों को परिहारों ने निष्काषित कर दिया तो उन्होंने आमेर के इलाके में मीनाओं की सहायता से ढुंढार रियासत की नींव डाली। ढुंढार के स्थान पर बाद में आमेर की प्रसिद्ध रियासत बनी। (दे. आमेर, जयपुर)

James Tod[10] writes that The warriors assembled under Visaladeva Chauhan against the Islam invader included the ruler of Kachhwaha. The Mori and Bargujar also joined with the Catchwahas of Anterved.

Ram Sarup Joon[11] writes that General Cunningham has proved that the Kachwaha Rajputs are also from the Pratihars and were not the descendants of Ram Chandraji's son Kush as they claim to be.

Ram Sarup Joon[12] writes that ...The Pehwa edict describes the rule of three Tomar kings. It is mentioned that they were the descendants of 'Jabala', the Hun who had ruled there before them- the third edict narrates the rule of Jabla Toraman.

There is an old saying in Rohilkhand that the Chief Toraman Kachwaha attacked Iran in 943 A.D. He conquered the territory from Iran to Bhopal. He constructed a fort at Gwalior. The descendants of Bhur Sen came to be called Kachhwaha in 945 A.D., and ruled Gwalior till 933 A.D., when Pratihars seized power. Therefore, if we accept this the Kachwaha Rajputs are the descendants of Torman, Jabla Gujars.

Charak Rai (the Bhat] who lived during the reign of Emperor Shah Jehan writes that the king of Iran was Torman. Shri Bhanderkar and General Cunningham and Mr. Smith all prove that Torman, Kachwaha and Pratihars are all descendants of Jabla Gujars. One of the edicts of Hun Chief Jabla was excavated in Malwa, at Mandsor, and is said to have been inscribed in 533 A.D.

According to this edict King Meharkul was the son of Torman, who was defeated and driven out by Yashodharaman.
