Tiruvarur in the Thanjavur district of Tamilnadu was the centre of Saiva and Sakta worship from very ancient times.

The Saiva cult revolved around the Tyagaraja icon enshrined in a temple bearing the name of the image. Interestingly, Tyagaraja is not the principle deity but a processional icon and is in fact an amalgam of three deities - Siva his consort Uma and their child Skanda.

Tyagaraja is a Somaskanda and the first visual representation of this composite deity can be traced to the time of Pallava rule.

She was a jubilee scholar of the University of calcutta and did her M.Phil. from the Universtiy of Hong Kong and Ph.D. from the school of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.
