Rajasthan is predominantly inhabited by Hindus. But Muslims, Jains, Sikhs and Christians form a fair proportion of the population.The Hindus are divided into numerous castes and sub-castes.

The Muslims include the new-Muslims or quasi-Hindus who observe both Hindu and Muslim customs and rituals. Of the Jain sects, the Digambars are undivided but the Svetambars are divided into two as idolaters and Sadhumargis including Terapanthis and Sthanakvasis. The Sikhs have swelled in numbers in this region since partition. Christians in Rajasthan are mostly concentrated in the big cities and include Roman Catholics, Methodists, Anglicans and other Protestant denominations.
