Famous Hindu Temples in Tamil Nadu, India

Apart from famous Hindu temples there is also a rich variety of temples and shrines for Dravidian Gods in South India, esp. in Tamil Nadu. When visiting that Indian state one should not miss to learn more about those folk deities. I made a book (and ebook) with lots of photos about this traditional religion. Have a full preview of my book about Dravidian deities (120 pages with lots of photos) in German: AYYANAR UND MARIAMMAN, DRAVIDISCHE SCHUTZGÖTTER IN SÜDINDIEN and in English: Christa Neuenhofer, AYYANAR AND MARIAMMAN, FOLK DEITIES IN SOUTH INDIA (see below).

The English book also exists in a low-cost version as an ebook . ISBN: 978-1457955617: http://store.blurb.com/ebooks/417542-ayyanar-and-mariamman-folk-deities-in-south-india
