Introduction / History

The Nagartha of India are vegetarians and they do not drink alcohol. They are Hindus and Siva and Vishnu are their gods. They are bullion dealers and sell cloth and other items. They live in the towns and near to the bigger trading centers. They copy Brahmin ceremonies.

The Nagartha cremate their dead and carry them in a blanket. A girl must marry before she gets to puberty age. Widows cannot marry again. Only on the grounds of unfaithfulness can divorce be allowed.

The Nagartha are merchants as well as being bankers. They speak in Kannada, Tamil and Telugu. Most of them live in places in southern Karnataka such as Mysore. Marriages are usually within their own group. They migrated from Ayodhya many years ago. The Nagartha also live in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give the Nagartha dreams and visions leading them to Salvation.
* Pray that gospel materials will bring them to Jesus Christ.
