One of Tamils' nature gifts: Hogennakal Falls

From antiquity up till the present day Indian civilization and Hindu religion have been one and the same reality. Ways of living, beliefs and the practices connected with them form a tradition that still rules the daily life of most of the Tamils (Muslims and Christians are minorities here).

Temples are of major importance to most Hindus, for they are not only centers of religious activity, they also serve as the focus for the cultural and social activities of the towns which encompasses them and ther villages which surround them. The influence of certain big temples extends far beyond their own locality, making them exceptional centers of attraction.

The history, art, literature and language of the State of Tamil Nadu, are among the richest of all the regions of India. As it was very little affected by the Muslim rule, this southern extremity of the Indian peninsula gives a picture of the original Hindu tradition.
