Jaswal is a Rajput clan found in India and Pakistan.


The Jaswal Rajputs are a branch of the Katoch clan of Kangra. Their ancestor Raja Purab Chand was a brother of the Raja of Kangra, who carved out an independent kingdom in the Swaan valley, which came to be known as Jaswan.[1]

The present head of the clan is Raja Naginder Singh, son of Raja Chain Singh Jaswal (since 1945) who lives in his ancestral palace at Amb (Una District).[2]
