SRIRANGAM

Introduction

Srirangam is a Railway station on the Trichy Madras chord line, the distance from Madras Egmore being 207 miles, and from Tiruchirapalli Junction three. It is
a small town on the outskirts of Tiruchira- palli Town. This small locality all the year round attracts thousands of devoted Hindu pilgrims, particularly Vaishnavites. The congregation of pilgrims becomes unprecedented during the main festival of Vaikunta Ekadashi, which falls in the Tamil month of Margazhi, corresponding to
December-January. The festival continues for a period of 20 days.

It is a traditional belief that Adi Sankara installed at Srirangam, a Yantra called Janakarshana Yantra to attract pilgrims to this sacred temple, just as at Tirupati
he installed the Dhanakarshana Yantra. Sankara infused immense power to this Yantra, which has proved by its action perfectly true to its name. Tirupati is the richest temple in the South, may be in
whole of India, and Srirangam is the most visited temple in the South.
