Burglars Watch Out - Beware the God

1 post in this topic

MADRAS, India (Reuters) - Beware of the god!

Residents of a small village in southern India have so much faith in a local Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva Muniyappasamy that all 132 houses in the hamlet have no doors.

The villagers of Meetankulam, a coconut palm-fringed coastal village in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, say they have never heard of a single burglary being reported in their community, the New Indian Express newspaper reported on Friday.

They also believe that any resident who tries to put up a door or a tiled roof to his palm thatch house will incur the deity's wrath.

The daily quoted a local elder Petchiammal as saying that a villager who started building a house using stone and with a door, about two decades ago, one morning found the unfinished construction had "mysteriously collapsed".

And the shrine itself, which is believed to be over 200 years old, has neither a door nor a proper roof.
