Hinduism And Hindu Theology - What Is Agnikula?

Agnikula refers to the “lineage of fire”. 

  • The Pariharas, Chauhans, Solankis, and Pawars are the four major Rajput clans (warrior princes) that make up the Pariharas, Chauhans, Solankis, and Pawars. 
  • This collective name, according to legend, alludes to the Rajputs' lineage from a single legendary monarch who sprang into being as a result sacrificial fire pit at Mount Abu in Rajasthan. 
  • After their emergence at the end of the first millennium, these four clans reigned over most of northern India, either as independent kings or feudal vassals, despite their uncertain historical origins. 
  • Southern Rajasthan was controlled by the Pariharas
  • The Chauhans reigned over the Delhi area. 
  • Gujarat was governed by the Solankis
  • In western Madhya Pradesh, the Pawars dominated. 

Despite the fact that their days as warrior princes are long gone, they continue to have an impact on politics, both as politicians and as constituent groups.
