The Gandhavariya (also known as Gandhawariya and Gandhawaria) are a Rajput clan based in northern Bihar.[1] They ruled over parts of Madhepura district[2] and Saharsa district during medieval times after the decline of the Oiniwar Dynasty.[3]

History[edit]

The writer Jyotirishwar Thakur recorded the existence of the Gandhavariyas Rajaputas in his 14th century book Varṇa Ratnākara and detailed how they held sway over much of North Bihar.[4]

The zamindari estate of Sonbarsa Raj was established by Raja Ranjit Singh who belonged to the Gandhavariya clan. They also controlled Baruari and Barail.[5]
