Ahirs are settled in Mahendragarh District and the neighbouring district of Gurgaon and the Jhajjar tehsil of Rohtak District. They claim to have descended from the Yadav tribe, the clan of Lord Krishna. They are hardworking agriculturists. By nature they are similar to the Jats and have a number of gotras like the Jats. But they differ from the jats in language. Ahirs practice widow-remarriage which is not allowed among the Rajputs.
