thiruvallikkENi, also known as brindhAraNya kshEthram is one of the most important dhivya dhEsams. This dhivya dhEsam is the divine abode of five emperumAns – pArthasArathy, narasimhan, srI ranganAthan, varadharAjan and srI rAma. In a single dhivya dhEsam, we can worship all these emperumAns who are mercifully blessing everyone.

His divine consort is vEdhavalli thAyAr who is the dear daughter of bhrugu rishi. varadharAjan emperumAn and srI rAma also enjoys their own uthsavams every year.

srInivAsan emperumAn (thiruvEnkatamudaiyAn) descends to this divine abode as krishNa (with two hands) on the request of king sumathi who wanted to see thiruvEnkatamudaiyAn with two hands as krishNa. Thus the main emperumAn became to be known as vEnkata krishNan.

It is also said that pArthasArathy emperumAn himself appeared as emperumAnAr in this world to fulfill the prayers of kEsava sOmayAji (father of srI rAmAnuja).

Many uthsavams are celebrated in this dhivya dhEsam in a grand manner throughout the year. 4000 dhivya prabhandham is recited several times throughout the year with great enthusiasm and fervour by the young and old srIvaishNavas. There is a thriving srIvaishNava community around the town which facilitates many spiritual activities such as dhivya prabhandham learning and contests, regular grantha kAlakshEpams and upanyAsams, spiritual events such as book releases, dramas, musical programs, etc. All in all, in the current situation, this is one of the ideal places for srIvaishNavas to live and nurture their children, etc., into the spiritual path.
