Hinduism - Who Are The Kanaujia?

 


Pancha Gauda is one of the five northern brahmin communities (the others being Gauda, Maithila, Utkala, and Saraswat).

Kanaujia brahmins may trace their ancestors back to Kanauj.

Kanaujia brahmins are most common in the eastern part of the state of Uttar Pradesh, around Kanauj; subgroups may also be found in Bihar, Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, and the interior parts of Orissa.
