This iconographic study of Lord Subrahmanya (also known by the names of Skanda, Karttikeya, Murugan...) in Tamil Nadu is based on extensive documentation, referring also to all related myths, rituals and religious ceremonies. Two chapters first undertake a study of the essential points in the mythology of Subrahmanya in Sanskrit and Tamil literature, as well as the different stages of representations of the god outside of Tamil Nadu. A concluding chapter examines the place of Subrahmanya in the pantheon of Saiva gods in Tamil temples.
