      This article explores the folk deity worship heritage, the problems and challenges faced by Malaysian Tamils in relation with this worship. The field work for this paper was based on Malaysia’s Selangor state and Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory. Data for this paper obtained via library research, interview and field research. This essay is written in a descriptive mode. The research identified that the origin of worship of the folk deity of Malaysian Tamil is the convention on the ancient Tamil. Since the day of immigrant Tamils to Malaya, their optimism has associated with their life till to date. The underlying cause of the folk deity worship is for the search of protection. The worship of folk deity has been essentially unchanged from the conventional method. Nevertheless, as the time passes, the change in economic condition and context of life brought in various extensions to folk deity worship. Following this, the folk structured worship methods started to accept the methods of agamic. The change of residence and the condition to live together with multi-ethnic society led to various problems. These problems require the involvement of the police, Municipal and also legal proceedings. However, Malaysian Tamils perceived the problems, the worship of folk deity is being continued without any flaws.
