Goddess Biliku

Biliku is an Indian spider goddess. 

Biliku is revered as the Earth's Creatrix by the inhabitants of India's Andaman Islands. 

  • She is a weather goddess who is in charge of the sun and punishes wrongdoers by sending wind, storms, and monsoons their way. 
  • She spins the webs of plenty and time, promising to feed and shelter her people for all eternity. 
  • Biliku, on the other hand, has a harsh and unpredictable temper, and when she feels betrayed, she unleashes cyclonic storms to sweep away homes and land. 
  • Because the Andamanese believe that burning wax enrages Biliku, they avoid lighting candles during the rainy season.
