The people living in this reign were known by Kurials / Kuril /Kureels. Now lets talk about their Gotras and Kuldevataa / Devi: The basic behaviour of Kurils were aggressive and dominating. The philosophy of their lives were to struggle and fight with social evils. Some of them had elite positions in King Chandras palace. Some were decided to begin farming and some were engaged in Pashu Paalan. Lord Bhairav was their Kuldevataa. Goddess Bhavaani seems their Kuldevi.
