Bhatti

Bhati People in rajasthanBhati Rajputs mostly reside in region of Jaisalmer and partly in border villages of Bikaner and some tehsils of jodhpur (Osian and Shergarh). Rawal Jaisal was descendent of the Yadu vansi Clan and a Bhati Rajput. Bhati Rajputs were chandra vansi Rajputs. Rawal Jaisal founded the city of Jaisalmer in 1156 AD. The new fort he built was on hill called Trikuta.

Bhati Rajputs were great camel riders and warriors. Their reign spread as far as punjab, pakistan and Afganistan. Their are certain monuments in Lahore such as Bhati gate which states their rule on Lahore which they conquered from Mahmood Ghazanavi.

The state of Jaisalmer was positioned right in the way of the route from Afganistan- Pakistan - Delhi. Taking advantage of this strategic position they levied taxes on the passing carvan. Bhati Rajputs were said to be great shooters with gun.

Sidhu, who are Sikhs has their origin from the Bhati Rajputs of Jaisalmer. Bhatti rajputs of Punjab and Pakistan have their origin from Bhati Rajputs of Jaisalmer.
