Agrawal (Agarwal, Agrawala, Agarwala) is a community found throughout northern India, including in Punjab, Rajasthan, Delhi, and western Uttar Pradesh. Other related communities include Maheshwaris, Khandelwals and Oswals.

Most Agrawals follow Hinduism, although some are Jains. The texts and legends of the Agrawal community trace the origin of Agrawals to the legendary king Agrasena of the Solar Dynasty who adopted Vanika dharma. Literally, Agrawal means the "children of Agrasena" or the "people of Agroha", a city in ancient Kuru Panchala, near Hisar in Haryana region said to be founded by Agrasena.
