Jasrotias claimed to be of solar origin,[1][dubious ] and belonged to the Mian class which was considered superior to other five[a] rajput classes of the region.[1][dubious ] The kingdom became extinct in 1834 and now a larger part of it has been converted into a wild-life sanctuary.Jasrotias are more familiars with Andotras and enemies of Mahajans as they always try to fall down jasrotias.
