  GRAMA DEVATHAS

This recognition of superior might and its sure protection gave with to theism. Not in the supremely evolved form as it is to day. However religion was baptised when his awareness matured, idolatry took definite shape. Does not premature man's worshipping of the icons of serpents trees etc., testify thus. It is endorsed by research. By degrees innumerable creeds and cults, styles and fancies appeared on the seen. With the flowering of intellect, ritualistic worship began. Just at this happy juncture, there emerged craze for erection of places of worship. This assumed enormous proportions, when the ruling princes and rich philanthropists took up the cause. Gigantic structures occupying millions of square feet of land adorned with superb sculptural embellishments filled the land and feasted the eyes. Divine pravaktas introduced then systematized traditions for conducting prayer services and to appeasing the worshipful deities for benedictions, aiming at universal welfare and harmonious living.

The places of worship served the community in multifarious ways. They were the seats of judiciary and cultural activities, finally turned out the citadels of culture and cradles of civilization.
