The Mori clan is one of 36 royal Rajput clans of India and falls in 24 Eka clans which are not divided further.They are Suryavanshi Kshatriya ,There are very few mori rajput existing on this earth now,The Mori Rajputs claim that they are the descendants of the Mauryan emperors; this is not widely believed by others. Mori Rajputs claims being a sub-clan of the Parmara Rajputs of Suryavanshi Lineage. They ruled Chittor and Malwa until the early part of eighth century and built the biggest fort in India at Chittor in the reign of Chitrangad Mori. Later, Sisodias made additions and modifications to the fort. The last king of the Mori Dynasty of Chittor was Maan Singh Mori, who fought against an Arab invasion, in which Muhammad bin Qasim attacked Chittor via Mathura. Bappa, of the Guhilote (Sisodia) dynasty, was a commander in the Mori army. After defeating Qasim, Bappa Rawal obtained Chittor in dowry from Maan Singh Mori in 734. From then onwards, Chittor has been ruled by Sisodia Rajputs. Later, Mori & Parmar Rajputs continued to rule Malwa until Muslim incursions. Of late, they have remained as smaller royal states and jagirdars in central India in the present state of Madhya Pradesh; they are presently settled in Wadhwan Dhar, Indore, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Narsinghpur and Raisen.
