Variar (Warrier/Varier/Variyar) is a South Indian, Hindu caste of the Ambalavasi (temple-personnel) community from Kerala, India. They are engaged to assist the Nambudiri priests in temple-related chores, primarily catering to the floral requirements and daily maintenance of the temple.

A few Variars have also served as ministers(diwans) in erstwhile princely states of Kerala.
