Saryupareen Brahmins

Saryupareen Brahmins also known as Sarvarya Brahmins or Saryupariya Brahmins are North Indian Brahmins who reside on the eastern plain of the Saryu River in India. The Bhumihar Brahmins, of whom many, though not all, belong to the Saryupareen Brahmin division of Kanyakubja Brahmins. Therefore, there is a lot of brotherhood among these Brahmin sub-castes and Dr. Hazari Prasad Dwivedi has mentioned it in his writings.

In the 19th and 20th national convention of Kanyakubja Brahmins by Kanyakubja Mahati Sabha, in 1926 and 1927 respectively, it reiterated Bhumihar Brahmins to be Kanyakubja Brahmins and appealed for unity among Kanyakubja Brahmins whose different branches included Sanadhya, Pahadi, Jujhoutia, Saryupareen, Chattisgadhi, Bhumihar and different Bengali Brahmins
