The Brahmin.


The Aryan caste system was made up of four main groups (listed in order of importance from most to least): Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya, and the Shudra. (The Untouchables occupied the space below the Shudra, but were not considered to be part of the caste system because of their extremely low status.)
