They worship the Goddess Cauvery- the sacred river that has its source in the serene hills of Kodagu. They are Hindus.
They worship their ancestors and seek their blessings before all auspicious occasions. The elders of the community play a very important part in all ceremonies pertaining to births, deaths and marriages.
One gunshot is fired when a male child is born. Two gunshots are fired when a soul departs.

No priests officiate at their weddings. It is marriage by witness, blessed by all those present. Verbal contracts are drawn up by the elders covering all situations that could cause problems that would need to be adjudicated.

This small former Independent State was merged with Karnataka much to the displeasure of all Coorgies in this State.Coorgies are HINDUS make no mistake on that since some communities consider that their religion is not HINDUS.
