Untitled[edit]

Along with my comments on Alvars and South India's 75 Apostles of Bhakti, I think this one could do with a bit of a makeover also. While it has been linked sensibly with the rest of the Hinduism topics, it needs far more improvement. Basically, it reads like an ad and not an article. We need to add more information and structure. - shash 13:22, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

Does anyone know if there are any original sources of information on the Nayanars other than the Periyapuranam? Arvindn 21:33, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Some of the stalapuranams, like that of the Kapaleeswarar Temple in Mylapore have some reference to the Nayanars. Their own compositions give a lot of information, also. shash 05:57, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

It does seem concerning that googling the absolutely unexplained "Thokai Adiyars" results in nothing but copy-pastes of this wikipedia article. It seems very important to this page that some decent sources are obtained as this is currently of very little actual substance. --Cantivsto (talk) 01:10, 6 November 2013 (UTC)


I have edited this page as my start page. I have removed all non working links I could find. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Angelinaquins (talkcontribs) 14:36, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
