Sri Periyava at Sri Mannargudi Periyava Gruham


Thanks to Sri Ganapathysubramanian for the photo share. This is a very important photo. It would be a blessing to visit this place. His name is Mahamahopadyaya Brahmasri Raju Sastrigal’s House, Mannargudi…Mahaperiyava will not even address Him by name – simply would call “Mannargudi Periyava” – such is his pandithvam. It is wonderful to see Sri Periyava visiting this holy place.

  1. I grew up in this very house for about 10 years from 1965. This holy gruham belonged to Mannargudi Periyava. After He attained Siddhi, this Holy place was taken over by the Kanchi Shankar Mutt as per the Agnja of Mahaperiyava and named Shankara Matham.

    My maternal grand father, Late Bhashyamani Srivanjiyam Swaminatha Sastrigal was with Govindakudi Veda Pathasalai. He moved to Mannargudi and took up residence at this Holy place as per Agnja of Mahaperiyava
    in 1965 and started teaching Vedam. I came along with him. I was 7 years old then.

    We were there till 1975 and then moved to Chennai and I personally moved to Pune.

    When the 18 day Utsavam of Rajagopalaswamy Temple starts, those veda brahmanas who visit the town used to stay at this Holy place for the entire duration of the Utsavam.
