Matam (“monastery”) is one of the many exogamous septs (division) among the Telugu section of the Devangas (a caste of weavers). The Devangas, speaking Telugu or Canarese, are found all over the Madras Presidency. Devanga is composed of Deva and angam, “limb of god”.Source: Project Gutenberg: Castes and Tribes of Southern India, Volume 1
