KANCHEEPURAM

To this Ashrama about 300 years ago came a brahmin of 28 summers born in a village called Sitanchery near Villiam- pakkam about 15 miles to the south-east of Kancheepuram. He was well versed in Vedas and Sastras. He got himselfinitiated into the Sanyasasrama by Sri Vasudeven- dra Saraswati who was then living at that Ashram. He stayed in the Ashram itself. While there he wrote commentaries on all the 108 Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita. He also composed Kirtanas on Sri Rama. Manuscripts of the commentaries and the other works written by him are now preserved in the Adyar Library. He came to be called by the name of Upanishad Brahmendra as he has written commentaries on all the 108 Upanishads.

Researches into the life of Sree Tyagaraja Swami of Tiruvayyar reveal that while he refused to leave Tiruvayyar at the request of kings, he took the only special trip to Kancheepuram. To visit Sree Upanishad Brahmendra Yogin in person. Kancheepuram is known as Kanchi and Cachchi and by other names also. The very presence of 108 Saivite temples and 18 Vaishnavite temples makes it indeed a City of Temples.
