Meaning of Suryavanshi

Suryavanshi Kshtriyas

The Suryavanshi lineage is one of the three lineages into which the Kshatriya caste of Hindus is divided, the other two races being the Chandravanshi (descended from Chandra, the Hindu Moon God) or descendant from the Lunar Dynasty, and the Agnivanshi, descended from Agni, the Hindu Fire God. All present-day Suryavanshis also claim descent from the Hindu God Rama, who was himself born into a Suryavanshi dynasty.

Most of the Kshatriya communities claim descent from Surya, Chandra, or Agni. The Surya descendants claim descent from Sun Dynasty (Suryavansh). Rama also belonged to this dynasty. Maharaja Agrasen also belonged from the same descent. This is based on the writings of the Rig Veda and other Puranas. Great epics Ramayana and Mahabharata and Raghuvamsa also support it.

Thats a good research and I appericiate your knowledge on our back ground. My Grand mom use to tell me this all my life when I was too you and use to say that our caste is not having any nice people or people who have made any good name and after hearing the same from my grandmom I use to feel proud and relaxed.
Good you and good that you have a thought of bringing all under one string.
By the way do you know another website build by Chandra(Tech Chandra) May be its good to have one place rather then two I believe.
What do you say???
