MURUKAN – A Tamil god


Murukan was a Tamil god, who has been identified with Skanda, Siva‘s son. Like Skanda, Murukan is a god of war and a god of love. He is always young, heroic, and handsome.
Murukan is the most widely worshipped of the gods in much of South India, especially Tamil Nadu. Three pilgrimage centers and six major festivals allow a mixture of folk, Tantric, and Brahmanical traditions.
