SRIRANGAM

Accordingly Brahma placed the Ranga Vimanam on the shoulders of Garuda who
delivered it to Ikshwaku at Ayodhya. Ikshwaku erected a big temple in between the rivers Sarayu and Dhamasu, and installed the Ranga Vimanam therein.
Ceremonial rites and rituals went on for ages. Ikshvaku's son Dasharatha ruled the country in the Tretayuga and he, being
childless, performed a great sacrifice, Putrakameshti Yaga, and got four sons.

During the performance of the great Yaga all the celebrated kings of the neighboring countries attended the function. Among them, Dharma Varma, a Chola prince,
was also present. After visiting the Ranga Vimanam, he desired to have it in his own country on the banks of the Kaveri. On return from Ayodhya, he started a
severe penance to get the Ranga Vimanam in his country.

Some sages, who had fore-knowledge of the coming events, requested him to stop his penance as it was already destined that the Ranga Vimanam would go to the Chola
country after some time.
