KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

Srirangapuram - Sri Ranganathan Aalayam

This reputed ancient Vaishnava kshetra is the contribution of a single devout Vaishnavate called Asthabhasala Gopala Rao, but later same additions were made by another philanthropist called Rajarameswara Rao. It is a much-frequented temple and the miracles of the archamurti lifted many duhkarthis in the past.

The mulavirat is in reclining posture, the traditional pattern of all the Ranganatha icons installed every where in India. The artistry- of the sculptor is of high order that it wrings veneration at its first sight. The prominent features of the recumbent Ranganatha are, masterly and proportionately sculptured with Sridevi and Bhudevi at the feet and Brahma seated on the lotus high above the navel of the charming icon. There is a seperate mini-shrine for Godadevi and it is popularly called as Choodikodutha Natchiar Mandir. The mukhamandap contains high sized images of dwarapalakas called Chanda Prachandas, lying just at the entrance of the garbhagriha. The temple facing south contains all other indispensable parts, like dwajasthambha, pradakshinapatha etc. in addition, two well-built mini-mandirs for Ramanuja and Perialwar conforming to the established traditions of reputed Vaishnaavalayas. Moreover, there lie near the dwajasthamba two mandaps for the most-venerable pravaktas Manavalamuni and Vanamamalaiswamy, the principal regenerators of Vaishnavism. With all this, thus good old kshetra stands as a good specimen of Ranganatha kshetra deserving ardent visit for soulful veneration.

The regular worship is offered according to Vaikhanasa agama. The annual 13rahmotsav falls in February and lasts for 15 days and the Andal festival in July luring huge crowds.

It lies 5 km of Vanaparthi of Mahaboobnagar district of Andhra Pradesh, commanding transport facilities.
