This book is a study of one of the most persistent and popular gods in south India and traces the history of the god, dwelling especially on four periods: the earliest known Tamil civilization as portrayed in classical Tamil literature and archeology; the northern epic period as depicted in epic mythology; the medieval south as depicted in the iconography and literature of the period; and contemporary Tamil Nadu as expressed in the ritual life of the cultus.
