Bhattacharyas are the name of particular Hindu scholars. The Bhattacharyas not only learn as the Bhattas do but they also study the meaning of each verse and word, so as to be able to give orally the explanation of any passage required.
The number of the Bhattacharyas, who represent the doctors of Hindu theology, is now very small. There are three or four of them said to be found to be found at Benaras.
The Bhattacharyas are highly respected and as incarnations of Vrihaspati, the Pandit of the gods at certain occasions regularly worshipped.
