The Founders

In about 1952, 2 or 3 Jats came here and on finding good land and water for agriculture decided to settle here.

Jat Gotras


In about 1950 mainly 2 Sheoran families came from village Dhanasri, which is situated in Bhiwani district and a major village of Sheorans. First they came to keshonagli a village in Swar tehsil in search of good land and water suitable for farming. But they found it unsuitable place for them so in 1952 they moved from there and reach Mewla Kalan. Mewla Kalan at that time was all forested and all types of animals such-lions, tigers etc. could be seen. Slowly they brought their other gotras relatives here and it is now fully a Jat village.
