All the major religions of India are followed by the people here: Hindu, Islam, Sikhism, Jainism and Christianity. People And Tribes


The land of great Rajasthan is inhabited by several castes and sub castes. The major portion of the population belongs to the Rajput clan. Rajasthan is popularly known as the 'Land Of Rajputs'. The literal meaning of which is 'son of the king'. It is said that Rajputs were of Scythian origin who were originally the residents of Iran and Caucasia in central Europe. They later occupied the south of the Himalayas. The Rajput clan is categorized into the following: Sisodias, Rathors, Chauhans, Kachawahas, Bhattis, Panwars and Solankis.


The caste system of Rajasthan can simply be divided into four categories: Brahmins, Ksatriyas, Vaishya and the Shudras. The writers and chroniclers of Rajasthan fall under the following eight categories: Kayasthas, Khatris, Orwals, Mohnots, Bhandaris, Singhis, Lodhas and Mohatas. The people belonging to these divisions mainly deal in business and administration.
