Jhangams are a subcategory of Hindus. They are traditionally known as the wandering monks. Means, they won't be staying in one place, they move to many places, not for their good, but for the good of the community. They go to new places, spread the word of god. If they have any questions, they answer them and clarify the message so that people do religious things with full faith and understanding. As a result, in the society Jangams are very well respected and given primary importance in social activities. Traditionally, Jhangams originated from Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. But later they moved to live in many other places too. Today they are living in many Indian states including Tamil Nadu where they are found in large numbers. They work with people of various communities and help them perform their regular religious activities. However, the next generation of Jhangams go to school and earn good grades. They are in colleges, working for various companies, some even starting their own businesses. Whatever they do, they ensure that their thinking skills are applied in the right way and best results are achieved in anything that they are doing. Jhangam matrimony process starts when parents of a boy or a girl decide that they are in the right age for marriage, preparing a profile of them. This is then distributed either manually, or by uploading it on a website. When this spreads to many people in the community, another family looking for a match to their son or daughter will come forward and both families would discuss and finalize the marriage plans.
