Naga Temple at Mannarsala

The Hindus of Kerala worship serpents and tree. This is a Dravidian practice. The Naga temples of Mannarsala and Vettikode are famous. In the hierachy of Hindu Gods, the serpent has only a minor place.

Likewise tree worship is so popular that the Hindus consider the Pipal tree, the Kuvalam and the Tulasi as sacred. Ancestor and devil worship are also not uncommon among the Hindus. Several minor Gods are also worshiped by the Hindus are Brahma, Saraswati and Suryan.
