Saiva Religion (A belief system that places Lord Shiva as the Supreme God) and Tamil language completely inter-related. Tamil grew with the Saiva Bakthi movement from the 6th century onwards, and many magnificent Shiva temples were being built in South India and other parts of India.

There was no caste system in Saiva Tamil literature and hence no untouchability.

Thiru Moolar, one of the great Tamil saints had said:

Onte kulamum oruvanae devanum in Padal 2066 of Thirumanthiram, 10thThirumurai, which means that the one devan is Lord Shiva.
