History of Ror In Haryana, India

The Ror are a Suryavanshi kshatriya caste in India and Descendants Of Ikshvaku and RAMA and More can be Read in The Treta Yuga Kings.

Currently, Ror descendant are also living in Haryana near Kurukshetra, Karnal, Kaithal etc. district and some are in Uttar Pradesh.

The community is fairly small and well-knit; as of today, they hold nearly 270 villages in Haryana and 52 more in Western Uttar Pradesh and the Haridwar district of Uttaranchal.

संयुक्त-प्रदेश में कागरौल नामक स्थान के पास इनका राज्य था, जो कि इनके काक Kheragarh नाम के राजा के नाम पर बसाया हुआ जान पड़ता है। कहा जाता है उसका किला एक मील के घेरे से भी अधिक था। जैगारे व कागरौल के बीच में उसके निशान अब तक बताये जाते हैं। रोर या रूर लोग अब से सात सौ वर्ष वैभवशाली थे।

Ror Dynasty
The Ror dynasty (Sindhi: روهڙا راڄ‎) was a power from the Indian subcontinent that ruled modern-day Sindh and northwest India from 450 BC. [1] The Rors ruled from Rori and was built by Dhaj, Ror Kumar, a Ror Kshatriya, in the 5th century BCE. Rori has been known by names such as Roruka and Rorik since antiquity. As capital of the Sauvira Kingdom, Roruka is mentioned as an important trading center in early Buddhist literature. [2] Buddhist Jataka stories talk about exchanges of gifts between King Rudrayan of Roruka and King Bimbisara of Magadha. [3] Divyavadana, the Buddhist chronicle has said that Ror historically competed with Pataliputra in terms of political influence. [4] The scholar T.W. Rhys Davids has mentioned Roruka as one of the most important cities of India in the 7th century BCE. [5]Shortly after the reign of Rudrayan, in the times of his son Shikhandi, Roruka got wiped out in a major sand storm. [6] This event is recorded in both Buddhist (Bhallatiya Jataka) and Jainannals. It was then that the legendary Dhaj, Ror Kumar (Rai Diyach in Sindhi folklore) built Rori Shankar, Rohri and Sukkur in Pakistan in the year 450 BC.

ARCHAEOLOGICAL REPORT, 1871-72. - Alexander Cunningham
Kheragarh is situated about twenty-four miles to the south of Agra, and about eight miles to the west of the (Gwalior Road, on the banks of the Ban Ganga river. It is a large village, or small town, standing on a large and ancient Khera. About 300 or 400 feet to the north side of Kheragarh there is an old Tila in which ancient sculptures are often found ; and there is another Tila, called " Taisu Tila," about 500 feet to the east side of Kheragarh, in which ancient sculptures have also frequently been found. There are the remains of a mud fort at Kheragarh which is said to have been built on the site of an ancient fort built of brick, which is the origin of the word "garh" in the name of " Kheragarh.”

" Kheragarh Ror" “Kaga Ror" or " Kagaroll"

Kagaroll is situated about three kos this side of Kheragarh, and about eighteen miles from Agra. It is a very ancient place, and the present village stands on an ancient Tila, composed of the debris of an ancient fort. There are the remains of a very strong and thick wall which runs through below the western part of the village of Kagarol1. This wall is composed of huge blocks of red sandstone, some of them beautifully carved. A great portion of this wall lies still buried under the earth of the old Tila on which the village of Kagroll stands ; but another portion of the wall which extended beyond the Tila had been almost entirely dug up by the peasantry, until at length they began to quarrel about their respective right to the materials. There is no wall now standing isolated by itself. I find, by enquiries made of the inhabitants of the place, that the statement which recently appeared in the Delhi Gazette is quite true so far as, that the ancient fort buried under this place was actually founded by a " Raja Bor," who is said to have been the son of “ Khangar." There is a tradition preserved in the neighbourhood about a "white crow" or kag, in consequence of the appearance of which, as an omen of augury, Raja Ror built a fort here, and from which circumstance it was called " Edge Ror," now corrupted to "kangroll." But to my mind the name of the fort is evidently derived from the combined names of Raja Khangar and his son Raja Ror, which would form the name of Khangar Ror, which in time might easily have been corrupted to Khangar Ror or kangro11. It must also be remembered that there is a tribe of Rajputs* called " Rora." It seems that there are many remains frequently found, or dug up at Kagroll, such as sculptures, images, old coins, &c. Two trustworthy men whom I lately sent there to explore the place brought me the following things, which had been dug up at Kagaroll:— (1).—An image of a warrior in yellowish sandstone ; present height about 13 inches ; but as it has lost the lower part of the right leg from the ankle and the lower part of the left leg from below the knee, its original height was probably about 1 foot 4 inches. It is a very boldly sculptured figure, and the features of the face are fine and manly, and of the handsomest Hindu type. The warrior has his right knee raised ; on his right arm he presents a shield in defence ; and in his left hand he brandishes a straight sword of huge dimensions over his head. In a belt round his waist he wears a dagger with a cross-shaped hilt at his left side. The hair of the head is full, but drawn back in straight lines on the head. The figure is naked, with the exception of a cloth round the loins, a belt round the waist, and a triple necklace round the neck. It is evidently the figure of a warrior of great strength, probably of some ancient hero. I should not wonder if this were a figure of Raja Ror himself. (2).—A small female figure, carved in relief, in a kneeling or sitting position. (3).—A small figure, in white sandstone, of a bull, springing forward in great terror, with the fore-legs raised, and attacked from behind by either a leopard or a tiger or a lion, which has got hold of the bull's tail in its mouth. Behind the bull's fore-legs a man's leg and foot appear, but the upper part of this human figure has been broken off, and on the top of the back of the bull there are the remains of two human feet of much smaller dimensions than the other. (4).—The remains of a small elephant or a bull in steatite. (5).—Two very small and curious figures carved in some kind of greyish-black stone, one of which is like an elephant, but with a very long conicalshaped human-like face. Underneath its belly there is a young one sucking at its teats. The other is a small sitting figure, probably of some divinity, with a very absurd physiognomy. A few coins were also brought to me from Kagroll, all of which were either very much defaced or of no importance, with the exception of one which I can hardly call a coin, but which is a thin dice of copper or mixed metal, one side of which is covered with a representation of a circular rayed symbol, resembling a chakra or wheel, and the other side appears to be blank. I hope, however, to obtain more coins from that locality, as the inhabitants of the place say that a great many coins, as well as images and other sculptures in stone, are found there. About quarter of a mile to the north of Kagaroll there is a very fine Muhammadan mausoleum, called the " Bara Khambha," built of red sandstone. The roof is supported by twelve pillars, and is surmounted by a dome. There are four tombs in this mausoleum ; on one of them there is an inscription, of which I have received an impression. I had measurements and a rough ground plan made of this mausoleum.

• Or perhaps more correctly, I should say—" there is a division of the Kshtriya race celled Rora or Ror.,, They said, however, that "there were numerous other large and heavy images and other soulptures lying about which they were unable to bring away !”

After the battle of panipat 1761 some escape alive maratha soldiers accept to be ror and settled in haryana.
But Maratha itself is group of many caste More Read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maratha.
