Rajput are a sub-caste or order of Kshatriyas but not all kshtariyas call themselves rajput. Kshatriyas were of three origins : suryavanshi, chandravanshi and agnivanshi (some include fourth as nagvanshi). These are found throughout India with different names of their sub-castes. Rajput is a predominant sub-caste of kshtariyas in North-Central India.
