Sri ragavendra swami born was in bhuvanagiri, Tamil nadu. Many of us know about mantharalayam but a few may herd about swami birth place. Want to know about the details of swami birth place. Then this resource is for you. Here I tried to give good guidelines for new visitors. Hope this article would stir up the thought to visit swami birth place to get blessings.

Sri ragavendra swami's birth place is Bhuvanagiri. Bhuvanagiri is located 7 kms from the temple town Chidambaram, Tamil nadu. It is also close to a great Saint Sri ramalinga adigalar's birth place Maruthur town. The word Bhuvanagiri is a combination of two Tamil - sanskrit words Bhuvanam and Giri. Most of us know that Bhuvanam means world and Giri means mountain and unmovable. Hence place unmovable.

Saint lived here until thy marriage and left to Kumbakonam for higher studies. The house, were swami born and brought up had changed as temple in thy remembrance. This temple is situated at 4th patti street in bhuvanagiri. Fifteen minutes walk from the Bhuvanagiri bus terminus.

Temple is kept opened up to 11.00 clocks in the morning in ordinary days and up to 12 - 12.30 in special occasions. Again opens at 4.00 clock in the evening and closed around 8 -9 .00 clock in ordinary days and up to 1.00 clock in New Year day. While presenting garland makes sure that there are no green leaves in the garland.

During swami's days, swami use to bath at Vellaaru river, nearby the temple and worshiped Anjaneyar temple, which, swami himself build (prathishtai}, is situated on the way from river to temple. These two are sacred spot to be seen and worshiped after the temple worship and can be reached, within 5 – 10 minutes walk from the temple.

Bus facility is good. For every 20 – 30 minutes we can find a bus for Pondicherry or Cuddalore. To my knowledge we cannot find good hotels in the vicinity of the temple. Only at Cudddalore and Pondichery we may find good one.

While sitting inside the temple, we get the feeling that "only here swami might had crawled, learned to walk, played, run around while eating, sit and studied, slept…" – O.. it was wonderful to experience.

Every devotees of guru sri ragavaendra swami must visit at least once in his or her life time.
