Six South Brahmin Groups Settled by Parashurama From Narmada


Latest Tsunami after Mahabharata War resulted in Sage Agastya bringing 71 Families from there and settling them in the present Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

These settlers in Tamil Nadu ruled the border areas of Karnataka, Coimbatore, Dharma puri, Salem and Erode areas as Velirs, small kingdoms under the three great kingdoms of Chera, Chola and Pandya.I have written on this.

Another migration seems to have been there before Ramayana period and this seems to have been led by Bhargava Rama, popularly known as Parashurama.
