There is a wide and varied range of sources to trace the history of the Srirangam Temple. These include inscriptions in the temple, poetry of the Azhvars, the works of the Acharyas and other records. Further, the Koil Ozhugu, a chronicle of the Temple, is a storehouse of information.  Badri Seshadri dips into all of these to narrate the history of the Srirangam Temple.

  1. Delighted to discover this site and the lecture series. I was born in Srirangam and live in Melbourne and wish to let you know that there are copies of Hari Rao’s book in two Universities in Adelaide and one in Melbourne. I had photocopied the book about 15 years ago.
