Hinduism has very ancient roots but began to assume its mature form only in the fourth century C.E. The most characteristic features of mature Hinduism are the worship of divine images and the construction of temples to house these images. Hinduism has a vast pantheon of male and female deities but pre-eminent among them are Shiva and Vishnu.
