About Nepali Gotra

Gotra system that is followed in Nepal comes from the ancient practice of Hindu society. It is believed that gotra normally originated from the sapta rishi and their descendants. For instance, if your lastname is Bhattarai, then You are a direct descendant of Sapta Rishi Basistha. Brahmin & Chettri in Nepal practice Gotra system but there are Newar's in Kathmandu Valley & Madhesi's in the Terai region who follow similar gotra system as well. As far as Nepali Gotra is concerned, there is very little research done so far to know more about it. In Nepal, group of caste follow the same gotra. Wedding is prohibited amongst people of the same gotra. This is because they are considered to have originated from the same Rishi/sage and are considered to be sagotri.

Normally one caste will have one common gotra, but there are cases when its not true. For instance, if your lastName is acharya, you may belong to kaudinya gotra or garga gotra. Wedding may be permissible if your gotra's are different, but wedding between people of same castname is not practiced in Nepal even if they are of dissimilar gotra.


Gotra of Acharya

Acharya can be either Kaudinya Gotra or Garga Gotra. Normally Acharya's from Eastern part of Nepal are Kaudinya whereas Acharya's from western Nepal are generally Garga. Acharya normally originate from Dhaknuta or SIndhuli
