Srivalliputtur is normally hot and dry and the wells generally dry up during summer. However we were given to... More

A nice temple. The main enetreance towards deity is not located right under the gopuram but the gopuram is something thats not to be missed out. The state emblem of Tamilnadu, the temple is not very crowded and peaceful moments can be spent at the temple

The magnificient temple is for Andal who married Lord Vishnu. Here Garuda Alwar is " Mappillai Thozhan " and can be seen next to Lord Vishnu. There is no separate Sannadhi for Garuda as in the case of other Vaishnavite temples. The place of birth of Andal is now Thulasi Vanam and there is a separate sannadhi for Periya Alwar.... More

A Good temple, which is currently undergoing renovation in the interiors. The towers of this temple are the official emblem of state of Tamil Nadu. Temple management needs to look into matter of maintainance of temple. Crowd management is one other aspect which the Management needs to learn.Milk products(palkova) very famous in this place.

Symbol of TN Govt is the tower of "Sayana Perumal Sanithi" - Birth place of Andal and there is a small temple with Baby Anadal in it. The main temple is pretty old, not well maintained though. You'll have special privilege/respect if you are Iyengar, they dont disrespect others, but those special privilege, might look rude to others. This is... More
