Samantha Kshatriya

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Samantha Kshatriya
Regions with significant populations
Malayalam, Sanskrit

The Samantha Kshatriya are a community of Kerala, India, who were historically ruling elites and feudal land owners in the Kingdom of Cochin and Kingdom of Travancore as well as the Malabar. Their residences are still called Kottaram or Kovilakams, all of which mean palace in Malayalam. Members of this community hold the titles like Thampuran and Varma. There were clans of Samanta Kshatriyas who wore the sacred thread (yajnopaveetham) as well as those that didn't.

Unlike most Kshatriyas (warriors) found in India, Samantha Kshatriyas rarely took part in warfare, relying instead on their cousins, the Kiryathil Nairs and Illathu Nairs to command armies. The Samantha Kshatriya also followed a matrilineal system of inheritance similar to the Nairs, known as Marumakkathayam.
