Patial is a suryavanshi Rajput clan of Chattari lineage in North India that claims solar origin by direct descent from Sri Rama Chandra of Raghav (Raghuvanshi) Rajput clan. Their traditional areas of residence are Rajputana, Trigarta Kingdom (the modern Jalandhar District), i.e. the areas of residence are mainly in the Indian states of Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. They are a branch of Sisodya Rajputs of Rajputana who moved out of Mewar during the reign of Rana Amar Singh as he accepted the Mughal Supremacy of Jehangir and settled in Eastern Hills. They are considered to be high class rajputs who only perform marriages in few selected rajput clans like Katoch, Jamwal, Rathore, Jaswal, Guleria, Jasrotia, Bhangalia, Mandial, Chandel, Manhas, Parmar, Pathania, Dadwal, Parihar, Chauhan, and others.

Marriage[edit]

Patial rajputs only perform marriages in few selected rajput clans like Katoch, Jaswal, Guleria, Jasrotia, Jamwal, Manhas, Pathania, Dadwal, Jarial, Rathore and Parmar .

A mare was given in dowry in marriage. Married women still follow Purdah.

Patial women wear Gold jewellery on their feet as a tradition. Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur explains:

Because they respected Gold, ordinary (Rajput) women did not wear gold on their feet. Only if you were of royal blood did you wear gold on your feet and if you were that class you never put on silver.[1]

Ordinarily, Rajput women and women of all other Kshatriya groups use silver jewellery on their feet.

In considering proposals for marriage, four gotras are excluded by Patial families:
