The Rajputs

First Online: January 01, 2007
Date Last Updated: May 09, 2017

The Rajputs are a prominent martial community in India. They are descendants of the ancient warrior dynasties (Kshatriyas) who ruled Rajputana (present day Rajasthan) and in fact, other greater parts of India. The community is spread in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh.

The Rajput dynasties played a prominent role in the history of India. They developed an ethos of warlike chivalry that served as the benchmark for other Indian warrior communities. 

The Rajputs were great patrons of art and culture during their prosperity. Distinctive forms of painting and architecture developed under the aegis of Rajput courts, and classical music found support.
