100 Village Gods of Tamil Nadu

                                                           100 Village  Gods of Tamil  Nadu

  I have been always fascinated by  the village Gods of Tamil Nadu, who re termed as “Kaval deivangal(The security Gods). I have found  that the people of Tamil Nadu have an  affection mixed with fear towards these Gods. Here is a write up about some of them arranged alphabetically . I am sure these Gods who form a part of the natural  scene of Tamil Nadu would  guard   all  of us.

Hi, Sir.
When someone refers to "Veeran" as a Kula Theivam do they actually mean 'Mathurai Veeran" or could there be other deities?
Thanks.

Dear Sir,
When "Veeran" is referred to as a Kula Deivam, is it Mathurai Veeran or could there be any other deity?

Nimalan said...

Hi, Sir.
Is there a kula deivam know as "Veeran"? Or does the name actually refer to Mathurai Veeran?
Thanks.

P.R. Ramachander said...

Normally it would refer to Madurai Veeran but almost every village has different Gods ans Veeran could also refer to a heroic God among them.
