Kota Brahmins



Kota Brahmins constitute one of the most significant groups of people in the city of Mangalore in the southern part of India. The Kota Brahmins are actually a division of the Brahmins belonging to the region of Tulu Nadu. The other two types of Brahmins in the region are the Havika and the Shivalli.

The Kota Brahmins of Mangalore have their true origins in the place called Kundapur as well as the neighboring regions in the district of Udupi in Karnataka state.

According to popular belief, it was a person called Parashurama who is responsible for the migration of the people belonging to the Kota Brahmin community to the southern region of India. These people originally used to dwell in the northern parts of the subcontinent of India.

The language that is commonly used by the community of Kota Brahmins is a dialect belonging to the Kannada language. Their language is quite different from any other language that is widely used in South India. The Kota Brahmins are included in the Dakshina Kannada Brahmins.

The Kota Brahmins are ardent followers of the religion of Hinduism. In fact, the people who belong to this community of South India are a part of the caste of Brahmin, which belongs to the Hindu religion.
