It is mentioned in Vedas, Puranas and Upanihsads, Mridang has been ruling the hearts of Indian people since the last 2500 years. The credit of inventing Mridang goes to Lord Shiva according to old Indian scriptures. Till about 2000 years Mridang was made of soil only. Its modern transformed look was created only in the 16th century. Mridang / pakhawaj is a finger played double headed barrel drum. The drum maker mixes iron fillings and rice and prepares a paste which is then spreaded on the smaller of the two drum heads. Mostly, two types of Mridangas are popular in Indian Classical Music. One of the two is North Indian Mridang which is called Pakhawaj and the other is South Indian Mridang called Mridangam. Often pakhawaj is specially used in North Indian Dhrupad Music. Similarly Mridangam is used for South Indian Carnatic Classical Music.
