The Devdasi System

Devdasi system existed in most of the temples.DEV (GOD) Dasi (slave) means getting married to Gods or Goddesses.For this ritual practice families donated their younger girl child to the temple. Status of devdasi was high in the society and she was also known as the divine girl. As the time passed, system changed and they were used for sex obligation for high caste and class people. Major percentage of low caste and tribal girls are forced to this practice under the cover of religion and some adopt for the reason that family had a history of Devdasis.
