Adhi Thiruvarangam


One of the oldest temples for Lord Ranganatha dating back to Kretha Yugam Gigantic Ranganatha is bigger than the Lord at Srirangam.

It is located about 60kms South West of Villupuram on the banks of the now completely dry South Pennai river is Adhi Thiruvarangam, an almost unknown and yet, one of the oldest temples for the Lord Ranganatha. This temple dates back to the first Yugam (Kretha Yugam) and the first Avathaaram (Matsya Avathaaram). Hence, this Kshetram is referred to as ‘Adhi’ Rangam.



Lord Ranganatha is seen in a gigantic east facing sleeping posture and measures over 15 feet, not seen in any other Divya Desam.
