The Vaippu Sthalam(Tamil:வைப்புத் தலங்கள், Also Called Tevara Vaippu Sthalam) are places in South India that were mentioned casually in the songs in Tevaram, hymns composed in praise of Lord Shiva during 7th-8th century.[1]
The Paadal Petra Sthalam by comparison are 275[2] temples that are revered in the verses of Saiva Nayanars in the 6th-9th century CE and are amongst the greatest Shiva temples of the continent. The Divya Desams by comparison are the 108 Vishnu temples glorified in the poems of the contemporary Vaishnava Alvars of Tamil Nadu, India.

The 3 foremost Nayanars with Manickavasagar - collectively called the Nalvars: (from left) Campantar, Appar, Cuntarar, Manikkavacakar.

Thevaram[edit]

Thevaram (Tamil: தேவாரம்) refers to the collection of verses sung on the primary god of the Shaivite sect of Hindu religion, Lord Shiva by tree Tamil poets (known as Saiva Kuruvars) - Thirugnana Sambanthar (aka Campantar), Tirunavukkarasar (aka Appar) and Sundaramoorthy Nayanar (aka Sundarar). The former two lived in the 7th century AD while the latter around 8th century AD. All songs in Tevaram are believed to be in sets of 10 songs (called pathikam in Tamil).
