Perumudivakkam Koil

Sreemathe RangaRamanuja Mahadesikaya Namaha

Members may be aware that Srimath Andavan early this month made Mangalaasaasanam of this Temple, located in a small village called Perumudivakkam, nearer to the well known Tirukkallam village.

Srimath andavan is very much impressed with the beautiful village atmosphere. The village is surrounded by paddy fields, Jasmin and red coloured vritchi flower gardens. 

H.H was also impressed by the look of the majestic 3 tier Rajagopram, for which Mahasamprokshanam was done, just a month ago.Both the Vimanam and Rajagopuram are inscribed with great sthapathi work describing the major events of Ramayanam and every visitor enjoyed having a look at them Sculpter work around the temple, giving prominence to Srimad Ramayanam are a beauty. 

My humble wish to all devotees of Sri Rama is to make a visit to this temple at times convenient, which alone will keep up the enthusiasm of the private dharmakartha of this temple. Now, this has been blessed by the great Acharya of our times, Sri RangaRamanuja Mahadesikan.

As a piece of information, the temple dharmakartha have accepted to fullfill the wish of Srimath Andavan to provide a small piece of land at the entrance to the temple, to build an Andavan Ashramam there.

Another information. I was introduced to this village one year back by a local construction worker and on visiting the place, I got attracted tothe Temple, where Swamy Desikan also is installed, I got a smallpiece of land and built up a small residential house, which can serve the purpose of making frequent visits to this temple village.

Please see the pictures taken on the occasion of Tiruveedhi Purappadu of Sri Seetha , Lakshmana Sametha Sri Ramar.  You tube movie pictures will follow.
