About Marwar

The Marwaris have historically been known for their enterprise and resilience. Hailing from an arid, inhospitable land, the Marwaris earned a reputation for their consistent commercial success, which became so legendary that the term Marwari grew to be synonymous with the entire mercantile class of Rajasthan.

The Marwari community has, over the ages, also steadfastly built on its past strengths and continued to gain recognition for its achievements in the arena of business, leveraging their business acumen to set up global enterprises beyond the borders of Rajasthan and India.
