Sauras a Hindu sect who worship only Suryapati, or the sun god. They are few in number, and scarcely differ from the rest of the Hindus in their general observances. Their mark on the forehead is made in a particular manner, with red sandalwood, and their necklace is of crystal. They eat one meal without salt every Sunday, and on every occasion of the sun's entrance into a sign of the zodiac; and they cannot eat till they have noticed the sun.
