Uroor Olcott kuppam is a fishing village near Adyar. The villagers are predominantly Hindu but religious harmony prevails. There are a several temples and family shrines dedicated to Hindu Gods and Goddesses dotting the village. There is also a dargah dedicated to a Nagore Andavar with a flag brought from Nagore. Surprisingly for a coastal village, there are no churches.
The village chief told us that they often pray to Nagore Andavar before launching a new fishing net of a boat. He added that they also attend several functions and festivals at the nearby Velnkanni church. He concluded by saying that while Hindus are open in attending any religious functions, ‘they’ are reluctant to reciprocate.
