Hinduism - Who Are The Lohar Or Lohars Among Hindu Jatis?


Traditional Indian society was designed as a collection of endogamous subgroups known as jatis ("birth"), in which marriage was only permitted between members of the same group by law.

The jatis were structured (and their social rank established) by their hereditary vocation, which each group had a monopoly upon.

Blacksmithing and ironworking were the Lohars' ancestors' professions.
