Temples & Legends Of India
Himachal Pradesh




The most important festivals in this temple are Pagal Pathu and Ra Pathu, The temple is also famous for the tank in front of the
temple known as Karveni. According to Puranic literature a bath in the tank would give all prosperity and happiness. The peculiar feature of the tank is that it does not get dried up at any time and a1su that fish do not thrive in it. A special importance is attached in this temple to Sri Ramanuja, founder of Visishtadvaita philosophy.

It is stated by Sri Pillailogam jeer in his work Ramanujacharya Divya Saritai that Asoori Sarvakrati Kesava Dikshitar, the father of Sri Ramanuja,  performed   Putrakameshti Yagam in the shrine for being blessed with a son and Sri Parthasarathy appeared in his dream and blessed him that He would Himself be born as his son under the name of Ramanuja in order to give the real import of the teachings of His Geeta for the benefit of humanity. There are rare and costly jewels in the temple, which, according to the present valuation, comes to about fourteen lakhs of rupees. There are also other assets in the form of lands and buildings and Government Bonds, totaling at least ten lakhs.
