It is no exaggeration to say that Sangha literature is the cultural treasury of Tamils. Sangha books are praised as the cultural treasury of Tamils as they propose various ways of life like culture, civilization, ethics, natural life, politics, war situation, gift situation, philosophy of Palanthamizhar. Belief in God presents a message that has been rooted and established among the people. And man is by nature to live in conflict with nature. Feelings of awe, beauty and awe in nature created a state of worship. Therefore, worship is a two-way thing with Him. People saw the divine in the natural forces around them. Deities are believed to reside in forest, mountain, water, wood, land, sea, stone etc. Here and there literature also points out norms for people's life. In this way, it examines the places where Murugan, who is the main deity and the Tamil god, resided.
