Gurkhas

Buddhist Monks Among the people Of the Gurkhas who settled in Sikkim, the Brahmins have the highest social standing. They are mainly agriculturists and are mostly orthodox  Hindus and would not normally have any matrimonial relations with other lower castes. But with the passage of time, rigidity of social attitude and

behaviour is fast disappearing. In the urban areas Brahmins are found marrying non-Brahmins, taking up a variety of professions other than priest hood and mixing freely with others.
