Introduction / History

The Lakhera are Hindus by religion. They are Rajputs. The word lakhera means worker. In Delhi they speak Hindi. In Haryana they speak Haryanvi and in Rajasthan they speak Hadoti.

The Lakhera are endogamous. This means they prefer marriages to take place within their group. Most of them make and sell bangles. Some of them own shops. They live in multi caste villages and have their own places. Their customs are similar to other north Indian Hindus.

The Lakhera also live in the south and east of Uttar Pradesh, in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Bihar and the Punjab. They get together to make more well known the understanding of their community.

Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
