Sri Vedanta Desikar Devasthanam…

I recently came across a website for this beautiful temple – Sri Vedanta Desikar Devasthanam, in Mylapore. The temple is a few hundred years old, originally enshrining only Swami Desikan and Sri Lakshmi Hayagrivar’s archa vigrahas. In 1924, Sri Kasturi Iyengar built sannidhis for Sri Srinivasa Perumal and Padmavathi Thayar. The temple now also has sannidhis for Sri Ramar, Sri Lakshmi Nrusimhar, Sri Andal, Chakkrathazhwar, Sri Bhashyakarar, and Pey Alwar (Mylapore is his avatara sthalam)…

The website (http://www.svdd.com/) is updated regularly, and has gorgeous pictures of the deities, various utsavams, and even video clips. Below is an intense video clip of the thottti thirumanjanam of Sri Srinivasa Perumal, and His consorts, Sri and Bhu devis (click the link)
