In Kumbakonom, according to an ancient myth, the world evolved from a kumba, a vessel. The city in the south of India claims to be the navel of the world, which, according to the Hindu creed, is actually the sacred city of Benares. This is one of the numerous contradictions which are a particular characteristic of the south of India, where myths, religious traditions and everyday life are entwined in what appears to be a hopelessly tangled web. Yet, in fact, everything does have an inner Indian logic, a cohesion derived and based on thousand-year-old stories of the gods and their worlds. This background explains the mysterious temple and also the fate of an old woman, who dedicated her life to the gods.
