Saryupareen Brahmins, also known as Sarvarya Brahmins or Saryupariya Brahmins, are North Indian Brahmins residing on the eastern plain of the Sarayu near Ayodhya. Saryupareen families such as the Tiwari, Tripathi, Pandey, Mishra, Shukla, Dwivedi and Dikshit were involved solely in the research and analysis of Vedas and other religious texts, performing yajnas and other religious practices. These families did not perform 'pujas for benefactors and did not take dakshinas or donations against such prayers. Hence they were considered to be solely devoted to the quest of learning about the Vedas and spreading knowledge rather than benefiting in any way through benefactors.


There is reference in Ramayana about Rama repenting for killing Ravana a Brahmin and over accepting his penance Brahmin community got split and settled at different places - one on banks of Saryu at Ayodhya itself and other were sent out to Kannauj and came to be known as Kanyakubj. The panch gaud were further migrants from these two offshoots and there is still discomfort between the two offshoots. There is no major historic town in Kannauj as compared to Prayag and Kashi the major abode of Saryupareen. Saryupareen share a cordial relation with other communities. The ancestors of Saryupareen originate from the major rishis viz the.[1]


"Kanyakubj Vanshavali" mentions five branches of Kanyakubja Brahmins as Saryupareen, Sanadhya, Bhumihar Brahmin, Jujhautiya and Prakrit Kanaujia:

Saryupari Sanadhyashcha Bhumiharo Jijhoutayah

Prakritashcha Iti Panchabhedastasya Prakartitah[2]
