Kullar (कुल्लर) Kular (कु्लार)[1][2] is a gotra of Jats found in Punjab, India and Pakistan.


They are said to be descendants of Kulika (कुलिक) Naga. [3]

They originated from Kullar, third son of Raja Baland. [4]

Genealogy of Kullar

Hukum Singh Panwar[5] has given the ancestry of Bharatpur rulers starting from 1. Yadu. Shini is at S.No. 38, Krishna at S.No. 43 and Vajra at S.No. 46[6]. From Naba at S.No. 47 onward we follow James Tod[7] who has based on records of Brahman Sukhdharma of Mathura.

For detailed History starting from Yadu you may see Raja Baland.


In the Sixth century A.D. they were fighting the Holy Roman Empire, along with the Bals and the Utars.

H.A. Rose writes that Kular (कुलार) is a small Jat clan in Jind which has a Sidh whose samadh is in Kular Khas. He was killed by a carpenter, so they never give or sell ghi or beestings to a man of that caste. [8]

According to Bhim Singh Dahiya[9] the Gondal clan represents the “Go-nanda” dynasty of Kashmir, the Lohar jats are the descendants of the Lohar kings of Kashmir, just as the Lalli, the Sahi, the Balhara, the Bring, the Takhar, the Dhonchak, the Samil, the Kular, and so on represent the people mentioned in the Rajatarangini of Kalhana.

They are a numerous race, inhabiting the mountainous countries west of the river, and notorious robbers.[12]
