Description

Preface

It is not unusual that we get to appreciate the value of our backyard-asset when someone talks about its merits. The flow of visitors to Sathyagaalam from other states and abroad has increased phenomenally in the last few years and we, the people who are close by, are realising its importance. The 'sambhandam' of this place with Vedantha Desikar's 'thiruvadi', with the added attraction of the shrines of Sri Varadaraajar and Sri Perundevi Thaayaar are a unique combination and has rendered it 'hallowed and holy'. This calls for a responsibility on the part of the managing committee of the temple to provide suitable facilities for the visiting devotees.

Sathyagaalam attracted Swami Desikan to make it his home for a number of years. Its serene surroundings, the beautiful waters of the river Cauvery just adjacent to the temple, and the indescribable beauty of the deities, Sri Varadaraajar and Sri Perundevi Thaayaar, cast a magical spell on Swami Desikan; it provided a good alternative to the Swami and his fellowmen who had left Srirangam.

Sathyaagaalam was memorable to the aachaarya in more ways than one: it was here that he gave a record number of Sri Bhaashya Kaalakshepams; it was here, according to many records by writers, that a son was born to him; it was here he also had the facility of remembering Srirangam by visiting Madhyarangam in Sivasamudram (it is actually 'Sri Vana Samudram'); it was here that Lakshmanaachaarya, who had Insulted the Swami at Srirangam, did penance by taking Swami's 'paadhateertham' to expiate his sins - in fact it is said that he was afflicted with leukaemia after insulting Swami Desikan, and he got rid of it at Sathyaagaalam; it was here that the famous incident of a tortoise racing him past to the temple took place.

I have been buying from Exotic India for years and am always pleased and excited to receive my packages. Thanks for the quality products.

As ever, brilliant price and service.
Howard, UK.
The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!
Charles (Rudra)
I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
