A few generations later, Raja Jambu Lochan founded the city and state of Jammu. In Rajputana their closest cousins are Raghav (Raghuvanshi) & KachwahaRajputs of Jaipur.

In antiquity of rule, which is generally considered a benchmark of royalty, they are second to none, but the great Katoch Rajputs of Trigarta and Kangra.
