Introduction / History

The Sengar (or Sangar) are one of the Rajput Kshatriya clans. The exact lineage of Sengar is Rishivansh. According to an ancient story, the father of Lord Rama, Raja Dashrath, had given his daughter 'Shanta' to Shringi Rishi. The lineage created from that marriage is Sengar Rajput.
