Ancestor- Worship

Observation  of the annual days of departed souls and reverence  paid to the  articles of worship of forefathers are highlights of life in many families. 

The place where the Shaivite  and Vaishnavite saints and philosophers were born or their  bodily remains are interred  are never missed  in pilgrimages. It is customary  for the devotees to visit  each one of the temples sung by them . These are located in the sea coast and islands, in  hills, on river banks  and remote areas. Tamil folklore  on spiritual  personages  is founded  on the bed rock of universalism  and nationalism.
