Ranganayakula Mandapam

Ranganayakula Mandapam Description, History, Location

While doing Sempangi Pradakshinam, the devotees who go in Sarva darsanam come across a big mandapam known as RANGANAYUKALA MANDAPAM which is south of Krishnadevaraya mandapam standing on a high basement. There are a small shrine about 12 sq. feet which are kept closed.

Ranganayakula Mandapam Tirumala

When South India especially Trichy, Srirangam were frequently invaded by Muslims during the 14th century, the utsava Murthy Sri Ahzhagiya Manavalan of Sri rangam was brought to TIRUMALA Hills and kept there for more than 40 years. The shrine which housed Sri Rangantha is now closed and Perumal’s various vahanams like Gaja Vaahanam, Garuda Vaahanam, Hanumantha Vaahanam, Sesha Vaahanam etc are kept inside. This mandapam is said to have been built by the king of Tirupati, named Ranganadha Yadava Rayalu

Adjoining this mandapam is Tirumalaraya mandapam where we find 3 statues of kings in Anjali mudra. Enroute, there is a big mandapam where Kalyanautsavams are performed daily on a large scale. A detailed description of the Kalyanautsavam is mentioned separately under Arjitha Sevas. The devotees who go in Special darsanam have to go straight via Dwajasthambam and they miss to see all the above. But if there is a heavy crowd, the devotees would be allowed to go via the route described above.
