Hinduism - What Is The Manimegalai?


 Manimegalai is a Tamil epic poem composed as a sequel to "The Jeweled Anklet" (Shilappadigaram), linking the characters from the prior play.

The novel revolves on a young lady called Manimegalai, who, despite being courted by the local prince, decides to become a Buddhist nun.

Manimegalai engages in several disputes with individuals of various religious traditions, providing a picture of religious life in sixth-century southern India.
