Jayas rajput, and sikarwar rajput clans claim descent from Suryavanshi king Raghu, his grandson Lord Rama, and Rama's son Lava. These clans use Raghav as their surname (or last name). Raghavs are suryavanshi rajputs.[1] They ruled several kingdoms and princely states in premodern India.[2][3]

Kuldevi of Raghavs is Durga and kuldev is Rama. Raghavs are internal clan fathers of Sikarwar rajputs. Raghavs are one of the ancient clans of rajputs. Raghavs are also known as Raghuvanshi rajputs.
