Introduction / History

Thathera people say that they are descended from the Haihay kings which was a very old Hindu dynasty. They moved from Rajasthan in the 1800s and came to live in Rewari, located in the small north Indian state of Haryana. The Thatheras are Rajputs who are divided into 47 clans.


Where Are they Located?

Thathera people live in northern India in states of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Thatheras earn a living in metal work and selling and repairing of household utensils. Many are cultivators of land. In Bihar, many are jewelers.

They have a caste council to settle problems to do with such things as divorce and property.

Thathera people speak primarily Hindi. Many Bible resources have been produced in Hindi.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Thathera people are Hindus and worship many gods. They celebrate most Hindu festivals.


What Are Their Needs?

The greatest need of Thathera people is to know the almighty God who created them. They need to know that there is no God beside Him.


Prayer Points

* Please pray that Christ's ambassadors will go to Thathera people in friendship and love and earn the privilege to give the gospel message.
* Pray that there will be a strong movement to Christ among this people group that will result in many being discipled so that they can lead victorious lives.
* Pray that the Holy Spirit will draw them to live without fear, and that they can worship the Lord without concern about what others think.
