Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

Unfamiliar Temples of Lord Vishnu

With blessings of Sri. Ramakrishana Deekshitulugaru, I got this idea of leting all know about the various infamous yet most improtant Vishnu Temples. Kindly if you know any of those kind which are of very old in time, then please do let us know. Please dont concentrate on new temples constructed few years back. We shall here discuss about the very old temples.

Please support us to spread the glories of lord Venkateshwara.

I am giving information of one of the temples. Kindly follow the details so as to help the devotees who wish to worship lord at that place.

Biligiri Ranganatha Swamy

Diety : Ranganatha Swamy (Standing)

Time peroid of the temple : its said, its much older than Kaliyuga

Location : about 90Kms from Mysore, in Kollegala Road

Nearest : Mysore for lodging, Railwaystation is Mysore, Airport is Bangaluru. Food moderate on hills, Can have a better option in Resorts and Forest Guest house

City : Biligiri hills, commonly known as B.R.Hills

Ideal time: Avoid rainy season, return back before nightfall

Topology : Dense Forest, approachable by road. Elephants,tigers,spotted deer,bear etc roam freely in the reserve forest.

Services : Govt. & private Bus services from Mysore at regular intervals. Conducted tours from Mysore, Bangalore. Govt. Guest house is an option to stay on hills

History: Its said Lord Vishnu married a tribal women in that area. Mahalakshmi was born in a tribal settlement who are called as Soligas. Those people even today call Lord as Bava (brother in Law). Whenever a wild animal approaches or poses threat, they call, Bava pls help us..., and the wild animal goes back to dense forest. Their is no reports of animal human conflict in that area.

Their is a huge footwear of Lord. The footwear is about 3 feet in length, and their is a walking stick inside the temple. Its said, Lord everyday wears that footware and uses the walking stick to roam casually taking care of his relatives in the forest. So once can clearely see the huge foot marks on the footwear. And to the surprise once can see mud marks underneath the footwear. The footwear gets wornout as ours do, and its replaced once in 3 years or so.

The main Diety is Lord Vishnu, and it was named as Ranganatha by the King Tipu Sultan when he visited to this shrine (17th Cen). Tipu Sultan's Capital is SrirangaPatanna, where the temple of Sri. Ranganatha Swamy is present. So he called the Vishnu Idol as Biligiri Ranga.
