The Nayanars or Nayanmars (Tamil: நாயன்மார்கள்) were devotional poets of Siva in Tamil Nad,active between the fifth and the tenth centuries CE. The Tamil Śaiva (related to Siva) hagiography Periya Puranam narrates the history of each of sixty-three Nayanars and the history of nine Thokai Adiyars.

Sundarar's eighth century work Thiruthoṇdar thogai lists 60 Shaiva saints. In the tenth century CE Nambiyandar Nambi composed theTirutoṇṭar Antādi, a sequence of interlocking verses whose title can be rendered as the Necklace of Verses on the Lord's Servants. In this work Nambi adds Sundarar himself and his parents to the sequence, creating what is now the canonical list of sixty-three saints, each with a brief sketch of his legend.

Nayanars were from varied backgrounds, ranging from kings and soldiers to hunter. The foremost Nayanars are Sambandar,Appar, Sundarar and Manivasagar .

They praised most holy temple abodes as the Paadal Petra thalam of the Siva thalam on the continent.
