SRIRANGAM

The entire city surrounding it was utterly devastated. The Chola king shifted the capital from Tri (Uraiyur) to Tanjore. The Ranga Vimanam temple was left uncared for, submerged under sand, which gradually gave rise to other, vegetation’s, that at last became a west. Then it so happened that once Chola prince went out for a pleasure hunt. He rested for some time under a tree in this forest.

A parrot living on the tree suggested to king that down below be lying submerged the sacred Ranga Vimanam. (The prince thereafter came to be known as Kilikanda Chola, the who saw the parrot). The Chola
king had heard about the Ranga Vimanam and found its location in the forest from the parrot. 

The information was also corroborated by a dream seen by the prince. Upon, the king started excavation work and unearthed the temple w prakarams. He also made additions and alterations to
the temple particularly the addition of a mandaparn in the name of the parrot, still known as Kili Mandaparn. He re - established the religious rite rituals in the temple as before. He became an ardent devotee of Ranganatha and attained liberation later.
