Srirangam Srimad Andavan Ashramam

India is a land of spiritual and cultural heritage.It is here we have 108 sacred places,popularly called as 108 Divya Desams,the myriad manifestations of Lord Vishnu,sacred in Vaishnavism and the centres of Bhakti cult, of which undoubtably SRIRANGAM occupies the first place.The significance of this place can be visualised by the threefold charm it has--cultural,traditional and spiritual.

Srirangam,a densly green locality,situated near Tiruchirappalli,320 KMs south of Madras(now known as Chennai).This is encircled by the two rivers of Cauvery and Kollidam,has been the citadel of Bhakti Movement propounded by Sri Ramanuja.This sacred place thus enjoys the veneration of being the first and foremost among the 108 Sri Vaishnava Kshethras and hence known as the Great Temple.Sri Ranganathar is known as Peria Perumal and Sri Ranganayaki Thayar is known as Peria Piratti.The uthsava murthi is popularly known as Nam Perumal.

Srirangam Srimath Andavan Ashramam has been the center for spreading the philosophy of Sri Vaishnavism and Prapaththi Marga (Saranagathi) founded and propagated by Sri Bhagawath Ramanuja and nurtured by Sri Nigamantha Mahadesika several centuries ago. Illustrious Acharyas have adorned the Peetam for the past 300 years.
