KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN TAMILNADU

Sriperembadur - Perumal

It attained the status of a great centre of pilgrimage for several factors of great spiritual significance. The first and foremost is-it houses an ancient Vaishnava aalaya dedicated to Adikesava Perumal, and has been luring pilgrims for over several centuries now. And more than this, it is the birth place of the great pravakta Sri Ramanuja, the founder of the widely known and much-hallowed Visishtadwaita philosophy that catapulted Vaishnava cult to the pinnacle of glory, rather in many respects it eclipsed the Dwaita and Adwaita schools of philosophy, since its inception. The temple is quite imposing in dimensions vast and beautifications superb with sculptural adornments. It has a sturdy prakara and a broad mahadwara surmounted by a multi-storied tower embellished with exquisite images of gods of all denominations. As it was built and endowed by the devout kings, everything bears the imprints of royal touch. There are very many mini-shrines for Vaishnavate deities including Alwars. In front of the Mahadwara also there are big halls and mandaps built for devotional activities. During its heyday, it excelled many kshetras in opulence and celebration of several periodical festivals known for their pegeantry and colour. Agamic puja is offered daily with extraordinary zeal. The Moolavar is known for his boundless benignity. Hence the unfaded glory of Lord and ardent visitation by pious orthodox people.

It lies 37 km off Madras and accessible by bus and train.
