Iyengar Information

Iyengar or Ayyangar is a caste given to Hindu Brahmins of Tamil origin who follow the Visishtadvaita philosophy propounded by Sri Ramanujacharya. They are found mostly in Tamil Nadu as they are generally native to the Tamil country. But they are also found in large numbers in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

As per popular tradition, Iyengars are descendants of Indo-Aryan migrants originally from North India, as are their Smartha counterparts, the Iyers.

Iyengars are Pancha Dravida Brahmins. Their actual mother tongue is Tamil. But nowadays there are Iyengars who speak other languages, mainly Telugu, Kannada, Hindi and Malayalam.
