Introduction / History

Rajput Chandels are descendants of two brave and great brothers, known for their fierceness and bravery in battle. In some parts of India people still sing songs to commemorate their bravery!
They are located mainly in north India.

What Are Their Lives Like?

Many still are in India's armed forces. A few fortunate ones are in the tourism business by renovating old palaces and forts into hotels. Poverty is also prevalent.

What Are Their Beliefs?

All of the Chandal Rajputs are Hindus. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is very diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews.

What Are Their Needs?

Like all Rajput peoples, the Chandel community needs to have a life-long encounter with Jesus Christ, the only one who can offer them life to the full.

Prayer Points

Pray for a spiritual hunger that will give Rajput Chandel people a willingness to accept the eternal blessings of Jesus Christ.
Pray for a disciple making movement that will bless these people this decade.
Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to the Rajput Chandel people.
