SRIRANGAM

News of the Ranga Vimanam being carried to Lanka had spread throughout the country and sages and saints were anxiously waiting with the Chola king Dharma Varma at the Kaveri to have a darsan. 

Inscrutable is the ways of God. The desire of Dharma Varma, the Chola prince, was fulfilled in this miraculous way. He started constructing a gigantic structure for installing the Ranga Vimanam. Dharma Varma worshipped the Ranga Vimanam for a long time and attained salvation. Years passed and once an unprecedented flood came in River Kaveri, which brought an enormous quantity of silt and sand and flooded the entire country. It is said that the flood was so devastating that even the peak of the gopuram of the temple was submerged under sand and looked like a sand dune.

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
