The word 'Bhabra' derives its origin from Sanskrit. Bhabra means Jain trading community. Before 1947, we had Bhabra bazaar in almost all cities of Punjab like  Lahore, Sialkot Rawalpindi,Ludhiana etc. Bhabras were traders and goldsmiths brought by Maharaja to Jammu. Scan any old record ,you find mention of Bhabra Bazaar in Jammu.
