Tirupathi - Kodandarama Aalayam

The holy town Thirupathi abounds in a wide variety of temples dedicated to almost all sects of Hinduism, of course, Vaishnavate temples rank higher not only in number, but in the magnetic pull they are exercising over the devotees. Temples built for Kaliamma, Gangamma, Anjaneya. Eswara, Saibaba, Raghavendraswamy, Sri Rama, Govindarajaswamy are strewn across the whole municipality bounds and are gratifying every type of aspiration of the adorers. Everyday many types of devotional activities are carried on in one corner or the other, justifying the attribute -Tirupathi is the cradle of culture and centre of national integration. The visiting yatris may not see the august archamurtis installed in scores of very fatuous Lind popular, ancient temples, but they feel the throbbing religious activities as they pass through the streets. But they invariably visit the sacred sannidhis of Govindai-ajaswamy and Kodanda Ranlalayant located in the heart of this spiritual haven. Even the Alayadarsan bus run by the TTD for the convenience of the yatris takes them to these two shrines indispensably, because of their antiquity and divinity.

Sri Kodanda Ramaswamy Aalayam lying within a walk able distance from railway station or bus stand is a miss-not hoary Vaishnava Mandir noted for its sublimity due to the sequestered location that breathes out divinity and breathes in piety. It is a decently built and moderately adorned mandir with two piakaras and a broad Maliadwara surmounted by an elegantly sculptured tower. It contains all the indispensable parts. The archamurtis - Sri Rama in standing posture flanked by Sita and Lakshman are about 10 feet in height and the artistry of the mater sculptor enthralls the viewers at first sight itself. The floral decoration is quite superb and transports the devotees to blissful world. An unforgettable experience which they lock up in their minds to bee cherished for ever. There are mini-shrines for Ramanuja, Vishvakasena, Garudalwar, in the second prakara. The broad pillars of Nlahanlandap adorned with sculptural marvels draw reverent attention of the visitors. The broad well-kept neat courtyards tempt the devotees to sit and meditate for a while. Incidentally this spiritual haven is preferred by the locals more, for the chief reason that. it is comparatively less crowded and so darsan becomes easy. There lies Anjaneya mandir across the road, but straight to the main nlandur. Regular agamic worship is offered along with periodical festivals like 13iallmotsav and Sri Rama Nawami on a grand scale, when the, whole town pulsates with Ramanama. It, attraction is as great as greatness itself.

It lies in Tirupathi, accessible by walk from railway station.
