Tharu Hut And Tribals Of Dudhwa

"Tharus" are the tribals living around the National Park. History says that the Tharus came from Rajasthan after the Battle of Haldighati, when the women and children were sent along with servants towards Nepal and the males stayed back and died fighting for their motherland. The women who were then left to fend for themselves, in the absence of mcn of nobler blood married their servants. This is the reason why the Tharu society is a matriarchal society.
