Ramayana - the moral epic
It is one of the few topics, that unites the entire nation; there are few minor differences in the course of events or details as the narration has changed, over the centuries, while it was handed down in various forms through several generations. In the North people still revere and worship Lord Ram and Maruti,his aide, and the number of temples amply bear proof to this. Whereas in the South, the reverence is to a lesser degree, and they do not form the main Gods, and they come under the subsidary level. But yes they do have temples for 'Ramar' and 'Hanumar' sprinkled all over; the names refered to have slight diffrences too.
