Marathi people form an ethno-linguistic people group that is distinct from others in terms of its language, history, cultural and religious practices, social structure, literature and art. They are one of the largest language group of all Indian people groups. The Marathi emigrated from the centrally located state of Maharashtra in India.
Most Marathi immigrants work as doctors, engineers or scientists. Others work in telecommunications and the IT industry.
Marathi people are predominately Hindu and due to the size of their language group often have their own Mandal (Hindu Temple). Marathi are spread throughout many metro areas (click here to learn more). Although the majority are Hindu, a small number are Marathi speaking Jews.
