They are: Veda Vyasa, the epic poet of India who authored the epics Mahabharata and Bhagavata,  Appar (also known as Tirunavukkarasar, one of the quartet of great Saivite saints, Tirumangai Azhwar, one of the more important Vaisnavite saints, Sankaracharya, the great philosopher saints, who propounded Advaita or Non-dualism, Allama Prabhu, the undisputed leader of the Veerasaivite movement, Guru Amar Das, the third Sikh Guru, Ras Khan, the Muslim mystic who revelled in the exploits of Lord Krishna, Shaji Maharaja, the short-lived ruler of Thanjavur who composed melodious devotional songs in mellifluous Sanskrit, Oottukkhadu Venkata Subba Iyer, the celibate devotee of Lord Krishna and Iriymman Tampi, a member of the royal family of Travancore, one of whose songs is sung in almost every household in Kerala.
