Our community has been sustained since AD 345 for 1700 years by knowing each other and marrying people from within the community. It was easy when everyone lived in a small area in Kerala. Our small population also helped us to keep our relationships strong.

Now our community is spread across the globe. Even though we are Christian, we are split into Jacobite and Catholic. Within the Catholics, we belong to different rites and dioceses. Due to these reasons, we do not have a unified umbrella to keep us together.


Site KnanayaCommunity.org is an attempt to create that unified umbrella and bring the community together for its future sustainment. This website is created and managed by a group of community loving people.

Vision

Knanayacommunity.org vision is to provide global platform for Knanaya people to keep their history and sustain their traditions, culture and values for generation to come.
