|'Agrawal' word is a combination of two words:
'Agr+Val'= Agrawal . Maharaja Agrasen's name was Agr and the name of his capital was
'Agroha', that's why he natives of 'Agroha' started calling themselves 'Agrawal'.

was food for all, clothes for all and shelter for all in his empire. None was poor in his
territory and mutual love and peace prevailed amongst his subjects.
There were about one million families in
Agroha. If any family of Agroha faced adversity due to any reason, or if a family from
outside came to take shelter in Agroha then the rest of the families donated one coin and
one brick to that family. This way, the deprived family gathered one million coins and one
million bricks and could arrange food and shelter for themselves and establish itself into
The pronouncement of end of Agroha by a saint led to fleeing of its residents. These
residents of Agroha spread into the surrounding regions of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh,
Rajasthan, Punjab etc. Later on, these people started calling themselves as 'Agrawal'.
