Pujari is an Indian surname which means "priest". In Rajput society, pujaris traditionally belonged to the priestly class in the Kshatriya community. But pujaris are mainly drawn from the Hindu Brahmin caste. All pujaris are supposed to be vegetarian only, not even eating eggs. The word 'pujari' means one who does the Puja of the idol of God physically in Hindu temples. They are supposed to learn and chant hymns (manthras in Sanskrit) dedicated to God, generally in Sanskrit. Pujaris are also called archaka. Throughout India, pujaris act as counselors during Hindu festivities and festivals. Pujaris have a reputation for being learned.
