  • This stone is housed in a small shed and people who know its significance, visit it on their way toMantralayam. If one travels by train, Madhavaram is on the way from the Mantralayam RoadJunction to Mantralayam.

    Venkanna had the fortune of witnessing the Brindavana Pravesa of Guru Raghavendra Swamy.Pleased with his devotion, the Guru gave him the Padukas that he had been wearing .Today the11th generation of Venkanna, still stay at the old Manchala Village on the banks of Tungabadraand perform poojas at the Moola Brindavana. The Padukas given by Sri Raghavendra Swamy isstill protected by them, and worshipped in their personal pooja room. This house is close to theVenkataramana Swamy temple, installed and worshipped by Guru Raghavendra Swamy.

    Venkanna was an able administrator and performed several tasks for the interests of the peopleof Adoni. In fact the tank that he had built for storing water at Adoni, called Venkanna Bhavistands till date bearing testimony to the devotion and efficiency of Venkanna who from a merecowherd had become a Diwan,purely through the grace of Guru Raghavendraswamy.

    Splendid Priya. It brought before my mind's eyes the Holy Place in its entirety.

    I was at Mantralayam in March this year and had the good fortune of having darshan of SriRaghavendra Swamy's Brindavanam, Sri Vadeendra Teertha Swamiji's Brindavanam. SriManchalamman, Sri Anchaneya Swami.

    But on reading your write-up I realized that I have missed quite a bit, and should repair thesame when I visit the place soon enough for thanks giving (GW).

    Thank you so much for this brilliant write-up Priya. May the Almighty Bless you with a chanceto visit many more temples and holy places and through your hands let Him/Her/It bring tolight Their Greatness for the welfare of the people.
