"This relationship starts from ancient magico-religious rituals and continues through ages right upto present times. In this long history we find different religions adopting different attitude towards theatrical arts. In many cases theatre became a most powerful medium of propagation of religious creeds. It was considered that the best way to appeasse God is to offer him theatricals. Beautiful maidens were consecrated to the temples to serve the deities by entertaining them with songs, music, dance and drama. One time the magnificent temple of Brihadeshvara had in its service four hundred Devadasis skilled in theatrical arts.
