Description:
The Gadhvi, sometimes also pronounced Garvi are a Hindu caste found in the state of Gujarat in India.

Origin

The community is said to have migrated from Rajasthan to Junagadh some two hundred years ago. They were the traditional genealogists of a number of Hindu communities in Saurashtra and Kutch. The Gadhvi are now found mainly in Junagadh and Bhavnagar.

Present Circumstances

The Gadhvi maintain community endogamy and clan exogamy. They have five exogamous clans, being the Parmar, Jadhav, Gohil, Leuva and Kabaria. All these clans are of equal status.

The Gadhvi were traditionally genealogists, but many are now small and medium sized farmers. Many are now also engaged in animal husbandry. A great number are now being urbanized, and taking up a number of urban professions.
