Ahirs

The Ahirs are concentrated in Mahandergarh, the neighbouring district of Gurgaon and the Jhajjar tehsil of Rohtak. They claim to have descended from the people to which Lord Krishna himself belonged, the Yadav tribe. They are by far the best and the most skilled agriculturists. They are hard working, frugal and orderly. In habits and nature they are similar to the Jats and they also have a number of gotras like the Jats.
