Worship of Heroes and Warriors

The memory  of warriors and historic  personages who have carved for themselves a niche in the hearts of the people is perpetuated  in ballads  besides  monuments. The most famous ballad is about 'Desingu Rajan' of Gingee in south Arcot  district  who built two fortresses and died in the 17th century fighting against a Muslim prince.  Similarly Panchalankurichi Veerapandya Kattabomman Kathaigal  keep alive the memory of Kattabomman, an early freedom fighter 

Mythological  heroes are also worshipped  Madurai veeran, a vassal of the Pandyas  is supposed to have saved the lives of many persons  in  heroic struggles, and is almost a demigod in Madurai . At the festival held in his honour, villuppattu is sung about his times.
