Gulia is a gotra or clan of Jats found in mainly in Haryana and Uttar Pradesh in India. There are scattered populations in Punjab, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh. Its pronounced differently depending on the region(gulia/golia/galia/guhilia/gulaya). According to the bard of the Gulia clan, during the rule of Prithvi Raj Chauhan, Badli, a village in jhajjar, was ruled by Raja Badra Sen. Two Saiyad Sardars, Nasir Hussain Mashade and Ata-Ulla Mashade came from Kabul to Badli under the leadership, of Bir Saiyed Hussain to destroy Haryana and they became rulers after killing Badra Sen. They employed Roras and Kalals as tillers.

In 1192 Mohammed Ghori was victorious in the Second Battle of Tarain and Prithvi Raj Chauhan was killed. Seven Brahmin soldiers ran away from the field and hid themselves in a temple near a pond three miles south of Badli. They were the sons of Udai Chand Brahmin of Indergarh. Their names were Ausar, Dausar, Rahal, Ashal, Mahal and Chahal etc. They mistook wine as water and drank it. Their purity as Brahmins was thus polluted. They put their sacred threads in a gol (an oval vessel of clay). Therefore they were called Gulia Jats and they settled in Badli as tenants of the Mohammedans. The bard (Bhat) of Gulia clan has written above unbelievable story about the origin of this clan.

These Gulia Jats were very brave and spirited fighters. When the conqueror Timur Lane was supervising the of Delhi, a Gulia youth named Harveer Gulia waged war against him and eventually drove him out. There are 24 villages of Gulias near Badli (jhajjar district) and two other villages (Rurki and Sabti) a bit away from there. There are 12 more villages across the Yamuna. Gulia Jats can be found throughout Northern India and Rajasthan.
