Sri Govindaraja Swamy Temple Tirupati History

When South India was invaded by Muslims, the presiding Perumal of Chidambaram, Sri Govindaraja Swamy was brought and kept safely in Tirupati. After the situation at Chidambaram returned to normalcy, the vigraham of Lord Govindaraja Swamy was taken back from Tirupati.

One day, Sri Ramanuja in his dream had a vision of Lord Govindaraja Swamy, He was advised by Lord to make arrangements for Him to reside in Tirupati. Sri Ramanuja who was already aware about Sri Govindaraja Swamy’s stay in Tirupati during Muslim invasion took the help of the king and went to the place which he saw in his dream. To everyone’s astonishment, they found the vigraham. Sri Ramanuja advised the king to construct a temple for Lord and construct houses for the people doing kainkaryam in the Govindaraja Swamy temple. Later, Udayavar installed Godha Devi and made arrangements for daily Thiruvaaradhanai. Till date, the pooja vidhanams laid down by Udayavar are strictly followed in TIRUMALA and other temples associated with it. Hence, this locality came to be known as Ramanuja puram.
