In the Punjab, the Rathor are in the Ropar region and are in almost thirty villages. In Madhya Pradesh they live in Rewa and other regions. In Uttar Pradesh they live in Dahia and other regions. Some live in Bikaner and Jodhpur.

The Rathor are noted for their bravery and are well liked. They are a generous group of people.
