Maharaja Agarsen, the leader of social reformation to uplift the down trodden human beings and a well known personality in the Indian Culture & Civilization. Maharaja Agarsen is regarded as founder of Agarwal community.
About 5000 years ago, Vaish King Maharaja Agarsen of a small kingdom established a domain whose principles were socialism, humanity, & non-violence. The development of kingdom completely followed the above principles. In co-ordination which is so practical that even the ancient or modern philosopher or prominent socialism leaders have not been able to teach better till now.

According to current calendar about 5185 years ago during the last stages of Dwapar Yuga Emperor Agrasen was the born as first son of King Vallabh ji and grandson of Maharaja Mahindar of Pratapnagar, a Kshatriya from Suryavansh (called Suryavanshi - lineage from the Sun). The young Prince Agrasen was an icon of non-violence, messenger of peace,an embodiment of Sacrifice, Compassion, Non-Violence, Peace, Prosperity and a True Socialist, and well known for his compassion.

As a young prince he attended the swyamvara of the daughter of the King Kumud, Princess Madhavi from Naagavansh (called Naagavanshi). Princess Madhavi selected Prince Agrasen for marriage, by putting the garland on him, thus became his wife.

Indra, the King of the Devas had been smitten by the beauty of Princess Madhavi and wanted to get married to princess Madhavi, when Madhavi selected prince Agrasen to marry her, Indra became very jealous and angry with couple. To get revenge against Agrasen, Indra - as he was also the Lord of Rain, made sure that Pratap Nagar did not receive any rainfall. As a result, a frightening famine struck the Pratapnagar kingdom. Prince Agrasen then waged war against Indra, and with dharma on his side, his army defeated Indra's army. Then Narada (the celestial sage) mediated peace between Indra and prince Agrasen.

On Narada's suggestion Agrasen started a severe penance to propitiate Lord Shiva. Pleased with the penance of Agrasen, Lord Shiva appeared and advised him to propitiate Goddess Mahalakshmi. Then Agrasen again started meditating on Goddess Mahalakshmi, who appeared and blessed Agrasen and suggested that he take up the tradition of business/trade for the sake of prosperity of his people. She then asked him to found a new kingdom and promised that she would bless his descendants with prosperity.

With Blessings of Mahalakshmi he build a very wealthy and developed kingdom at that time. "Agroha", the capital of his regime is today regarded as a holy place by all Agarwals family.
