Sinsinwar is a gotra (Clan) of Jats found in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, India. The Bharatpur rulers of the Sinsinwar gotra originate from Sini/Shini in the ancestry of Krishna; which itself is derived from Krishna's own gotra, Vrishni. They are Chandravanshi kshatriyas. Before the formation of Bharatpur state, the capital of Sinsinwars is said to be at Sinsini.
The rulers of Bharatpur claim to have originally been Yadavs, the descendants of Krishna. Historians suggest that Sinsinwar gotra originated from a village named Sinsina, named after Sinsina, who is considered to be the patron saint of all Sinsinwars. Sinsina has a temple in his name "Sinsina Baba ka Mandir" in Bharatpur. It has also been claimed that a Chandravanshi Yadav is said to have migrated from Bayana to the Deeg jungles and founded a village named Sinsini, named after the tutelary deity.
