The term Jasrotia is evolved from Jasrota, which was a rajput state founded in 1019 A.D. by King Jasdev of Jammu. During Aurangzeb's reign, they migrated from Rajasthan to northern India. Jasrotias claimed to be of solar origin,[dubious ] and belonged to the Mian class which was considered superior to other five[a] rajput classes of the region.[dubious ] The kingdom became extinct in 1834 and now a larger part of it has been converted into a wild-life sanctuary. The members of Jasrotia clan meet annually at their ancestor place to pay homage to their ancestors.
- The other five rajput class beside Mian were, Thakkars I, Thakkars II, Rajputs, Rathis I and Rathis II.
