Sri Srimushnam Andavan - Sri Ranga Ramanuja Mahadesikan has a great passion for Dombivli Ashramam. As most of the construction were kutcha and so also the flooring, shades for the temple, etc. Vagaries of the weather - were causing inconvenience to devotees and kainkaryaparas (staff). Overwhelming support of patrons, devotees, sishyas, blessings and active participation and guidance of Prakritam Andavan, Sri Rangaramanuja Mahadesikan, enabled the overcoming of the hurdles and development of this Temple, which today is a wonderful solace for thousands of devotees who regularly visit it. Eminent religious leaders and heads of Mutts have visted the Temple.
During the years that have since passed, additional Sannidhis (temples) for Sri Sudarshanar, Sri Yoga Nrisimhar, Sri Ramar and some of the eminent Srivaishnavite Acharyas with Sri Lakshmi Hayagrivar have been built, smooth flooring in and around the temples has been provided, a separate Kalyana Mandapam for the festivities of the Temple like Thirumanjanam, Thirukkalyanam, Veda/ Prabhandha Patanam and the like has been beautifully built, a Rajagopuram (main entrance) and a gigantic dwaja sthampam (flag mast) have been put up. Besides developing the main temple, facilities for its employees, facilities for devotees and their family functions like marriage, etc., as also for performance of srardh ceremony for their ancestors, etc., have also been added. Above all, a Goshaala for several cows has developed in the temple, which by itself is a very auspicious asset of the Temple.
