 AGNI VANSHI KSHATRIY अग्नि वंशी क्षत्रिय
CONCEPTS & EXTRACTS IN HINDUISM By :: Pt. Santosh Kumar Bhardwaj
(1). AGNI KUL :: Historically it was the process of returning back to Hindu fold of the Kshatriy who had adopted Buddhism and abandoned the Vedic traditions.
Rajasthan was ruled by large number of small democratic republics of various Jat clans and other tribes. These republics were there till the rule of Harsh Vardhan. After Harsh in 647 AD, the Jat republics weakened due to invasions by Mughals, Turks, Muslims and Yavans. In the sixth and seventh century when new Agni Kul clan of Rajputs was created in Mount Abu, many of the Jat clans merged in them. Some Jat Gotr joined or merged with the Pratihar Confederation. But Majority of Jat Clans merged with Chauhans. Jat clans existed earlier as well. At this turning point they identified them with the new clans termed as Raj Puts. Badwas, Bhats, Jagas etc. had been identified with new clan of Agni Kul Kshatriy. 
Raj Rishi turned Brahm Rishi Vishwamitr and Vashishth Ji joined hands to recreate-revive the Kshatriys. The sages & saints gathered at Mount Abu where various other hermits and sages were constantly performing religious rites. The sages preferred to visit Ksheer Sager abode of Bhagwan Vishnu under the patronage of the Creator Bhagwan Brahma, who had occupied a seat over the floating Lotus (-emblem of eternity). Brahma Ji requested Bhagwan Vishnu to regenerate the warrior race. Eventually they returned to Mount Abu with Indr, Brahma Ji, Bhagwan Rudr, Bhagwan Vishnu and all the divinities. The fire-fountain (-Anhal Kund, अनहल-अग्नि  कुण्ड) was lustrated with the holy waters of the Ganga; expiatory rites were performed and it was resolved that the King of Heaven-Dev Raj Indr will  a initiate the work of recreation.
PARMAR ::  Dev Raj Indr formed a doll (-Putli, puppet, पुतली) with doob grass (-दूब घास) and nurtured it with elixir (-अमृत) reciting the Sanjeevni Mantr and offered to Agni Dev in the Holy sacrificial fire in the Agni Hotr-the fire-fountain.  A figure slowly emerged from the flame, bearing in the right hand a mace and exclaiming, Mar-mar (slay, slay). He was called Parmar; and Abu, Dhar, and Ujjain were assigned to him as a territory.
SOLANKI :: Brahma Ji was then entreated to frame one from his own essence (-ansh, अंश). He made an image, threw it into the pit, whence issued a figure armed with a sword (-khadg,खड़ग) in one hand, with the Veds in the other and a janeu, (sacred thread, जनेऊ) round his neck. He was named Chaluky or Solanki, and Anhal Pur & Patan were appropriated to him. 
PARIHAR :: Bhagwan Shiv-Rudr formed the third. The image was sprinkled with the water of the Ganges and on the incantation being read, a black ill-favoured figure arose, armed with the dhanus (-धनुष, bow & arrow). As his foot slipped when sent against the demons, he was called Parihar and placed as the guardian of the gates. He had the nonlegal Marusthali (-मरुस्थली, nine habitations of the desert) assigned him.
CHAUHAN :: The fourth was formed by Bhagwan Vishnu; when an image like himself, four-armed, each having a separate weapon, issued from the flames, and was thence styled Chaturbhuj चतुर्भुज, चौ-हान Chau-han or the four-armed). The Gods bestowed their blessing upon him, and Macavati-Nagri (Maheshwar) as his territory.

JAT GOTR COMMON WITH PARIHAR-AGNI KUL VANSH :: Raj Kul Jats, Parihars are found in districts of Agra and Mathura. During Mount Abu Maha Yagy for the creation of Agni Kul Kshatriy some Gotr, which joined them became Raj Put Parihars and those remained out of it were Jat Parihars and Gujar Parihars. Their origin lies in The Mahabharat period Tribe called Paratangan (-परतंगण), rulers near Man Sarowar (-मानसरोवर) in Himalay region, as these were the people on gate way of India near China border. Their neighbours were Tangan (-तंगण) people who are still found amongst Jats in Jaipur and Bharat Pur districts in Rajasthan and in Firoza Bad, Uttar Pradesh in the form of Tangar (तंगड़) Jat clan.
Some Jat Gotr also joined or merged with the Pratihar Confederation. The Jat clans common with Parihars :: Bal, Balhara, Bhandi, Bhati, Chapal, Chapotkat, Danga, Gujar, Jakhar, Kacheriya, Koak, Marral, Mor, Padauda, Sel, Tangar, Taval, Thakan.
Most of these Jats were the descendants of Nag Vansh and rest were Ahir, Gujar and Yadavs.
(2). The creation of the Agni Kul was expressly for the preservation of the altars (-वेदिका, वेदी, बलिवेदी, अग्निहोत्र-कुण्ड) of the sages-saints against specifically the atheists (-भगवान् को न मानने वाले), demons (-राक्षस), giants (-दैत्य) born as Bouddh (-बौद्ध) and the Muslims. These races, the sons of Agni, were but regenerated and converted by the Brahmans to fight their battles.
Agni Vansh (-अग्निवंश) or Agni Kul (-अग्निकुल) is one of Major Kshatriy clan which descended from Agni the Deity of Fire-Agni. Agni Puran mentions the birth of these Kshatriy from the fire like Draupadi and Dhrashtdhyumn in Panchal, which resides in Mount Abu in Northwestern India after the elimination-wiping off-destruction of ancient Kshatriy Kul dynasties.
PhotoThe deity is worshipped in mount Abu as as Achleshwar (अचलेश्वर). The auspicious Agni Kund (अग्निकुण्ड, auspicious-holy fire place)  is still shown on the summit of Abu, where the four races were created by the Brahmans to fight the battles of Achleshwar and polytheism, against the mono-theistic Buddhists & the invader-barbarian Muslims, mainly.
Agni Vanshi Rajputs emerged from the Agni Kund (sacrificial pit-pot) as the result of the final sacrifice offered to Agni Dev as (1). Pratihar or Parihar, (2). Chauhan, (3). Parmar & (4). Solanki, Chaluky or Chaluk.
The miscreant barbarian invader Muslims started destroying the religious practices, rituals, prayers, Agni Hotr, Hawans etc., compelling the Brahmns to perform the Yagy to obtain warriors to slaughter the invaders. Parihar, Chaluk and Parmar could not accomplish the job which necessitated the fourth offering resulting in the appearance of Chauhan.
The Parmar was born from essence of Bhagwan Shiv, Solanki was born from Bhagwan Brahma's essence, Parihar) was born from Devi's essence and the Chauhan was born from the fire. Together they were called Raj Put or Raj Putr (-राज पुत्र, son of a king). Each one of them gave birth to a clan-hierarchy-Shakha-branch-lineage-Sub Title or basic sub-clan with its individual genealogical creed, describing the essential peculiarities, religious tenets and original domicile of the clan. This creed is a touchstone of traditional affinities and provides all information governing the laws of intermarriage.
