Arts

The music and dance of Tamil Nadu had their beginnings in the temples. From early times, different groups of people were appointed to sing divine songs in the temple. Officers called Thevara Nayakams or leaders of the world of music, arranged the private worship of kings and group singing. Bharata Natyam is
the most famous and practiced dance form in Tamil Nadu and practiced in the temples of Shiva. Most of the art forms of Tamil nadu would depict the culture and rich heritage of people and their rituals, living style and language.
