Our Popular Deities


The GSBs have tremendous religious faith. Vaishnava GSBs worship Lord Vishnu or his incarnations while the Smarthas, Lord Shiva as their main deity. 

All other deities like Lord Ganesh and the consorts of Vishnu and Shiva are parivar Devatas, Kuladevatas or worshipped once in a while or annually during festivals. They have three deities, Kula Dev or family deity for compulsory worship and pilgrimage, Ishtadev, or deity of individual's choice, for prayers and meditation and finally Gram Dev, the deity in the locality where they reside. Sun is worshipped at the time of upanayanams, and while chanting of Gayatri mantra and by ladies at the time of Shravan Tulasi pooja, but there is no temple exclusively dedicated to Surya.
