The Talokar (pronounced Thalokar), are a gotra (clan) of Jats, found mostly in the Punjab province of Pakistan[1] with some few in India too.

Origins[edit]

According to their traditions, they are the related to Sial and Tiwana tribes. All three tribes are said to be descendants from three brothers, Tila, Sila and Taloka, who were Panwar Rajputs. However, today, the Talokars are generally counted as Jats (Sardar Malik's), (SardarZada Malik) or (Mahar) as their descendent brothers Sial used the title (Sardar Khan), (SardarZada Khan), (Mahar) and Tiwana used the title (Malik Khan), (Sardar Khan) or (SardarZada Khan) rather than Rajputs in the Punjab. Each of the three tribes are headed by a chief called the nawab sahib (sardar). Unfortunately the chief of the Talokar tribe Khan-e-Khanan Nawab Sardar Khan Khuda'dad Khan died in 1689 with no successor. He was married with the daughter of Khan of Kalat and was the last chief of the Talokar tribe.

The some of tribe is said to have accepted Islam at the hands of the famous Fariduddin Ganjshakar. The Talokars came from East Punjab in India, and first settled near Bhera and Akolkhed in Maharshtra. Their first villages were Kalara and Kurrar Talokar. From there, they spread to the east side of the Indus River, founding the villages of Bakhra (Kacha), Ding and Khola (Thal), parts of Peshawer valley,Bannu and Mianwali District. Also they spread in west side of India founding village Akolkhed and Dalmbi Kolambi. Some of them even reached as far as the Attock area and Hazara District of the former North-West Frontier Province as attested by the name of Talokar village in Haripur area.

The Talokar are today mainly found in the districts of Bhakkar, Khushab, Sargodha and Mianwali districts. Also in India Maharashtra Vidhrabh Region.
