The village has one Jamia Masjid called Masjid e Noor, three other mosques and one Imam Bargah. Majhoi has one girls' high school, one boys' primary school and two private schools. The Majhoi community comprises a large number of castes including Sadaat (Gillani, Kazmi, Bukhari and Gardezi), Raajgan (Khakhas and Bambas), Abbasids, Sheikhs, Qureshis, Choudharies, Tareen, Mughals, Makhdoom, and others. Followers of all main schools of thought of Sunnis and Shiites live there, as do members of many political parties.
