>>Along the way 
Daasarathy established the following five Narayana divya sthalams (sacred
places)--1) 
Keerthi Narayana at Thaayak-kaatil, 2) Sriman Narayana at Thondanoor, 3)
Veera 
Narayana at Karukala, 4) Vijaya Narayana at Vijayapuram and 5) Kesava
Narayana at  Belur.<<<

In this list Keerthi Narayana temple at Thaayak-kaatil
is known popularly as (TALAKADU) and that is my native village. My father's
great grand father Sri Raghnatha tatachar
migrated to Talakadu. This place has over 2000 years of history and I hope to
post it sometime. The keerti Narayana  temple stays half buried in sand and
is quite beautiful and unique. Talkadu is a strong Shiva ksetram with pancha
linga darshanam etc. I was ubder the impression that Ramanuja established
this temple, but appears like it is his close companion Sri Dasharathi.
