India is such a diversified nation in many sense. whether its culture , arts or religion. Today here i am going to tell you about a christian religious faction living in Kerala , where not much details available about this community in internet. Actually i came to know about this community from my friend “Priya Francis” from Kannur. There are some migrant communites in Kannur as well even though they mainly settled in Kottyam.
For thos who don’t who is Knanaya?
- The Knanaya are an endogamous group(mean they strictly marry from their own community) in the Christian community of Kerala, India. .Today there are about 300,000 Knanaya in India and elsewhere.
- Knanaya believes they are pure Jesus blood clan and they don’t want it to mix with other people by marrying, so they are strict endogamous people.
