Badgujars rajput, 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]

Etymology[edit]

The Sanskrit word Raghav is found in ancient texts, including the Vedas, the Ramayana, and the Mahabharata. The word Raghav was used for the Lord Rama. Raghavs are Thakurs. 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.
