Introduction / History

The Sathwara have two main sections related to eating habits: the vegetarian and non-vegetarian. They are endogamous, meaning they choose marriage partners from within the group. The Northern Gujarat Sathwara are divided into the Dandariya group living in Sabarkantha and the Patanwadia living in the Mehsana region. They are divided even more into exogamous clans, choosing marriage partners from a clan that is not their own.


Where Are they Located?

The Sathwara are a Hindu caste who live mainly in Gujarat in India. They live mostly in North Gujarat, Saurashtra and Kutch. They speak in Gujarati and Kutchi. In Gujarat they live mainly in Patan, Mehsana, Bhavnagar, Jamnagar, Junagadh, Sabarkantha, Surendrnagar and Vadhiyar.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Sathwara do such work as masonry and are in other jobs too. It is said the Sathwara were originally farmers. They have a magazine called Satvara Shikshan Sandesh.

The Sathwara are also called Sathvara, Satwara, Satvara and by other names that are Kadia Sathwara, Kadia Satvara Dalwadi, Satwara Kadia Samaj and Kutchi Satvara.

Kadia is the name of a Hindu people that works in masonry among other things. (The name Kadia may have been given because of the masonry work done by the Sathwara).
