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.
