Introduction / History
The Kanyakubja Brahmin in India are also called also Kanaujia Brahmin and their name comes from the town of Kanauj. They are mostly vegetarian and they like wheat and rice. Their religion is Hinduism.

In Uttar Pradesh they speak Awadhl and read and write in Devanagari. In marriage they are strictly monogamous. Divorce is not allowed but widowers can marry again. The sons inherit the property while the oldest son is in charge of the home on the death of the father. There are marriage rituals and the dead are cremated. There is a death pollution period. They work in cultivation and other paid work. Higher education is desired for their children and they do family planning.

In Bihar they can be called Babaji. Bhojpuri and Hindi are spoken by them and they read and write in Devanagari. On inheritance, property is shared equally among sons and daughters with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. In the villages they are priests or work in agriculture. They read and write well.

In Delhi the Kanaujia speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. Some have small businesses. They are well educated.

In Madhya Pradesh, they live in Jabalpur and other regions. They speak Hindi and read and write in Devangari. They work mainly in agriculture and some are priests.
