Kundhi's were fierce warriors especially during, the time when the kundhi tribe, had converted to Sikhism; they fought numbers of wars for Guru Gobind Singh, Banda Singh Bahadur and Jassa Singh Ramgarhia.

'Kundhi or kundi (in Gurmukhī script) is a prominent Sikh clan belonging to the Jatt tribe.

Sir Denzil Ibbetson counted the Kundhi's as one of the major Jatt tribes of the Punjab and the Northwest Frontier Province, centred in Amritsar,Jalandhar,Lahore and Ludhiana.

The origin of Kundhi was a Jatt clan. Later they were thought of Ramgharia/Jats.

Kundhi Jatts are dominant in villages of Jalandhar,Kapurthala ,Hoshiarpur and Ludhiana.

Kundhi are widely known as successful landowning farmers through Punjab today, specially in the areas of jalandhar(Doaba).
