    Hebbar Iyengars constitute a part of the Iyengar sub-caste of the Karnataka Brahmins. They are traditionally followers of Ramanuja and Vedanta Desika.

    Hebbar Sri Vaishnavas are Kannada Iyengars. Hereunder brief particulars published in website of Hebbar Sri Vaishnava Sabha.

    The Hebbars speak a Tamil dialect known as Hebbar Tamil. Once found only in the Karnataka towns of Belur, Shanti Grama, Nuggehalli, Nonavinakere, Bindiganavile and Hiremagalur, Hebbar Iyengars are now found in many parts of India, across Europe, and North America.

    Since their mother tongue was Kannada they still have the affliction towards Kannada. Gradually they learnt to speak Tamil mainly to learn the DivyaPrabhandams.

    But still many Hebbar Srivaishnavas cannot read and write in Tamil. They read theRamanuja’s philosophical works andAlwarsDivyaPrabhandams translated toKannada or English. However, they recite NalayiraDivyaPrabhandams in Temples inKarnataka forming Goshtis. They are called Melnatu Iyengars as they are residing in the High plateau of Karnataka. Another sect called KeelnatuIyengars are those who migrated to Karnataka from Tamil Nadu, which is lower than the Plateau of Karnataka.
