Blogging on the grace of Lord Ranganathaswamy of Srirangam:

Ranga, the reclining deity of Srirangam in Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu boasts of the biggest tower in Asia and one among the biggest temple complexes. The deity installed in the temple in stone form is called Ranganatha while the idol used for taking out in processions is called Azhagiya Manavalan. Ranga is said to be the most beautiful idol in the world, in the eyes of Azhwars. Ramanujacharya (whose 997th birthday falls on May 4, 2014), says that the Lord Rangaraja is most kind father of all living beings. Ranga is the only deity who has been sung by all the ten azhwars. How can ordinary persons like us describe all the good qualities of the lord in one small blog? Ranga deserves millions of blogs :) Read my trip to Srirangam with friends and family

Blogging on the grace of Lord Ananthapadmanabha Swamy at Thiruvananthapuram:

I was reading about last week's visit by President Pranab Mukherjee to the temple at Trivandrum, which brought forth my own reminiscences of the temple.
