MANTRALAYA - MANCHALAMMA TEMPLE

This famous Madvamatapitha enshrining the holy Brindavan of Sri Raghavendraswamy has a small but significant shrine lying at the left corner of the temple. Ironical it sounds, this benign archamurti going by the name of Manchalamma is receiving agrapuja from all the devotees since that auspicious day of H.H. Raghavendraswamy's setting foot on this sacred thirtha kshetra. This holy land was sanctified by the performance of a great yagna by Prahlad in Kritayuga. And the legends are heightening it glory with the anecdote that Sri Rama passed this way during his fourteen year Vanavasa. Realising its spiritual potentialities with his antarchakshu,, Raghavendraswamy opted for the then barren and forlorn land,  when the Nawab of Adoni offered a Jagir for Swamiji's residence and building of an ashram. No sooner did he set  foot on this desolate ground, he found the Mother's shrine and her ethereal presence. Praying soulfully for eternal vigilance, he inagurated the constructional programme. And he ordained that the visitors must offer first worship to her and then only enter the interior mandir.
