What is Gotra in Nepal?
Gotra is based on the surname of a person. Nepali Gotra is essential when a girl and boy get married. The boy and girl from the same Gotra can not marry according to the Hindu religion. It is believed that they have the same ancestors. So, boys and girls of the same Gotra can be considered brothers and sisters. Marriage between the same Gotra may result in infertility and serious diseases.
