Snake Worship – Temple in Karur

Snakes are the most deadly reptiles and the most feared one. Be it poisonous or non-poisonous, we just do not like it surrounding us. In fact, I fear to see them on the television. Because they conquer my dreams and frighten me the entire night. However, the fact is, they do not intend to harm us until they feel that we will harm them.
