||This article may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia's quality standards. The specific problem is: this article uses unreliable sources of British era such as Ibbetson, etc. The source quality needs to be improved and mythological references need to be put in proper context as claims, not as established facts. The article needs to be completely rewritten using reliable sources and neutral tone. Reliabilty on a single dubious class of sources i.e., gazetteers of colonial era needs to be reduced and put in proper context. Wikepedia cannot use these sources unreservedly. (May 2012)|
Ghorewaha (pronounced "Gohraywaha") claim to be a sub-clan of Rajputs in India and Pakistan who regard themselves as descendants of Raja Hawaha (also spelt "Ahwaha"), who, according to their claim, became recognized for his equestrian prowess, hence the name "Ghorewaha" or "expert equestrian".
According to Suleman Khan of Rahon, the successors of Raja Hawaha have been rajas for 13 generations. Raja Bin was the father of Rana Rajpal and Bhinsi. The Ghorewahas of Rahon and Shekhomazara and those of Saroha Simil, Mukandpur and Gag in the Garhshankar Tahsil and of Bairsian, Kunail are descended from Rana Rajpal, son of Raja Bhin.citation needed
The Raja of Machhiwara, Rana Udho, actively assisted Emperor Akbar in his fight for the Delhi throne, he captured the rebellious Bairam Khan and subsequently the Raja was allowed to retain the Jagir of Rahon.citation needed
