Singhroha (सिंहरोहा) Sigroha (सिगरोहा) Sigroa (सिगरॊआ) Singhrowa (सिंघड़ोवा)[1] Sangroha (संगरोहा)[2] (Singroha, Sangroya‎, Singroya) Jat gotra is found in Haryana.


They have originated from Shigru of Rigvedic tribe.[3]


Hukum Singh Panwar (Pauria) writes:[4] The Jat tribes[5] Sigroa or Sigroha bear unmistakable identity With the so-called Rigvedic non-Aryan people named Sigru of the east. other Jat tribes[6] closely resemble several other Rigedic Aryan tribes. Among such Jat tribes are Singala or Singla or Singar or Sangar;

H.A. Rose [7] while describing Kumhars writes that According to a tradition current in Lahore the forebear of the Mahar Kumhars had four sons ; to the eldest of whom he assigned the task of sifting the brick dust, whence he was called Sangroha ('sifter'). But this seems to be a bardic explanation and not historically correct.
