Where are Khadins found?

A khadin is a construction that is designed to harvest surface runoff water for agriculture. It was first designed by the Paliwal Brahmins of Jaisalmer, western Rajasthan in the 15th century. This system has great similarity with the irrigation methods of the people of Ur (present Iraq) around 4500 BC and later of the Nabateans in the Middle East.
