Hinduism - Who Are The Kapu Or Kapus Among Jatis?


Traditional Indian society was based around a series of endogamous, or intermarried, groupings known as jatis ("birth").

The group's hereditary occupation, over which each group had a monopoly, was how these jatis were structured (and how their social rank was decided).

The Kapus were farmers in traditional civilization.

The Kapus are the largest landholding tribe in most of contemporary Andhra Pradesh, notably in the area bordering modern Tamil Nadu.
