Bhuvanagiri - Birthplace of Sri Raghavendra Swamy

Mantralaya is one of the holy places in India and many people visit this place every year. Mantralaya is the place where Madwa Saint Sri Raghavendra Swamy entered the brindavana.

However many people do not know about the birthplace of Sri Raghavendra Swamy. When I was searching for that info, I got to know that Bhuvanagiri is the place where rayaru was born. Upon further researching, I got to know that this place is situated in Tamilnadu state near Chidambaram.

When I recently did Tamilnadu tour, I visited this place as well and this post is to share some info about this sacred place.

Bhuvanagiri is situated around 10kms from Chidambaram.

The house where rayaru was born still exist and the mruttika brindavana is constructed here where daily pooja happens.


Inside House

Surprisingly, a certificate is issued validating the birth place of rayaru based on the records found and the same information is inscribed on a stone inside the house.


How to reach and where to stay:

It is easily accessible from Chidambaram. Chidambaram has plenty of options for stay and food. It does not take more than 30mins to reach this place from Chidambaram.

New Year Greetings!

When I look at 2015 from the blogging perspective, I have not made any improvement compared to 2014. Though I posted very few posts, majority of them were related to the travel. Of course, I got a very good feedback on the posts as it helped fellow travelers to plan ahead.

However, I am optimistic about 2016. I'll be more active and would share useful information. Recently I did my longest drive ever covering more than 1500kms around Tamilnadu. Perhaps, I'll begin 2016 year with a few posts of that trip.

Wishing you all a very happy, prosperous and successful New Year!!!
